How to tell my colleagues about my upcoming divorce ?
I didn’t tell my coworkers that I started going through trouble in my marriage around 2 years ago. A few weeks ago the process for my divorce formally started and now don’t know how to bring it up. Many of the coworkers are connected with me on social media and have been asking about the absence of my husband in the pics for a while. I always made up a story that he is busy and traveling etc.
I have avoided any chance to go to colleagues parties or call them home. I have a decent team at work and they are supportive but people do keep asking about my husband and I always lie. Now I don't know how to suddenly break this news. At one level I want to move on in my life but I am afraid that people will judge me for lying to them for so long. Should I tell the colleagues I’m closest to and then let them tell others? Or should I move jobs and then tell the new colleagues the truth right from the start. Even good people in India are very nosy about your personal life so questions about your spouse keep coming up.
