Cheryl Duffy


Cheryl Duffy is a successful businesswoman who has delivered key programs for successful change and betterment in a large, multinational company. Cheryl holds a master’s degree in business administration and several post-graduate certifications from various institutions around the world, and she has achieved phenomenal heights in her professional life; however, the most difficult change she has ever had to manage was divorce, which affected every facet of her life, including personally.

After nineteen years, Cheryl’s marriage came to an end, and her life completely changed. Being the first among her family and friends to experience divorce, she was left to blindly navigate her way out of the tumultuous times, into a better post-marriage life. She offers The Divorce Tango as a guide to others who are going through divorce, hoping to provide insight into the process that will help divorcees move forward. Many have asked her for advice as to how she handled the myriad of problems left in the wake of a marriage breakdown: the loss of a partner, child custody disputes, financial instability, effects on the family, mental health and emotional impacts, and the battering and lowering of one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. In her honest, helpful book, she shares the lows of separation, the mental anguish and frustration of custody battles, the awkwardness (and sometimes hilarity) of dating again at fifty, and the contentment of a rebuilt life. The book also provides case studies from others who have experienced divorce and honestly share their experiences, exposing the real challenges they endured and offering helpful advice to others going through it. Professional advice is also included from counsellors, psychologists, and divorce lawyers.

Cheryl’s passion in life is to help others change for the better, and The Divorce Tango is a culmination of advice from her, others, and professionals—a must-read for anyone who is trying to survive the rocky waters of divorce and move on to a happier, healthier life after marriage.


Divorce is like the tango, a passion-fuelled dance between two people, with many twists and turns through emotionally charged phases. The duration is not defined, and the experience is different for everyone.

There is no set amount of time for how long it will take you to recover and heal from divorce, as this is a major life change that affects everyone differently. At first, you may feel as if your world has fallen apart or has been ripped out from beneath you, and the future may seem dauntingly uncertain. Perhaps you previously felt as if your life was under control, yet the breakup of your marriage has left you feeling as if everything is turned upside down, never to return to its former state. There are major impacts to deal with, including emotional, familial, and in your confidence and financial stability.
