Love and Marriage: 8 Things Divorcees Wish They Had Known

November 16, 2015 2 min read

Marriage advice from divorced people.
  When happily married people dish out love advice, it's something to take into consideration. After all, there's usually a bit of comprise, hard work and just a genuine affection for each other that keeps things as pleasant if not more than the day they got married. But, while there's sure to be some couples out there that have never really had a "bad" day in their time together, it's the ones who have experienced the detrimental pitfalls that ultimately led them to divorce who can really provide some insight. Below, Brides shares topnotch marriage advice from divorced people. “In a weird twist of fate my sister’s divorce was final a week before my wedding. Right before I walked down the aisle Emily took me aside and said, ‘Learn from me, Pam. Bill was always saying I never complimented him. He’s right. Not only wouldn’t it have cost me anything to say, ‘You look so handsome today'; ‘You have such good taste in clothes,’ those types of comments might have saved my marriage.'” —Emily “While I feel secure that my marriage will last forever, I take to heart the advice of Val, my college roommate who wound up getting screwed over by her ex during the divorce: ‘Make sure your name is on all the legal and financial documents and that you know all the financial assets, income, and liabilities of what is called the marital estate!’ Love is one thing; protecting yourself another.” —Annie [bctt tweet="8 Things Divorcees Wish They Had Known"] “My brother-in-law, who’d been divorced twice before meeting my sister, gave me advice I will remember forever: ‘Don’t be threatened when your partner changes. You will change too. It’s about accepting each other and welcoming growth, not trying to keep your other half in a box.'” —Sheila “My divorced mom gave me sage advice, ‘Never forget you are part of a team. Keep growing together instead of in opposite directions and you’ve got it made.'” —Beth “Three years after her divorce and one month before my wedding my friend Sandy told me, ‘Stop picking at the scab. Once he apologizes and you forgive him, truly let it go.'” —Sloan “My friend Sondra told me, Remember the expression: ‘Walk a mile in the other person’s moccasins? Empathy is key. I think the major reason Dan and I got divorced is because we never truly tried to understand for the other person’s point of view.'” —Anne “Here is what my best friend Diane told me she’s learned from having her marriage fall apart: ‘Don’t always rely on your spouse to come up with fun adventures for the two of you to nip boredom in the bud.'” —Naomi “My friend Tammy told me, ‘I put way too much pressure on my ex to satisfy all my needs and make me happy. That’s why he left. It was a hard lesson to learn that no one else can be responsible for your well-being.'” —Linda

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 1-2 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
