Mayim Bialik blogged about divorce to share religious process
Mayim Bialik divorced her husband Michael Stone in late May, and later went on to blog about the experience. She regularly blogs for Kveller.com, and explains in a new interview why she felt the need to write about such a personal experience.
"I wanted to write about some of the more complicated aspects. And specifically, also, there's certain things [related] to Jewish divorce that people don't know about," Bialik tells Access Hollywood.
In addition to their legal divorce, Bialik and Stone had to get divorced through Judaism. The religious process called "Get" is something Bialik found very helpful going through the divorce experience.
"You sit in the same room and you watch your divorce deed be written. It's actually a very interesting thousands year old document that you watch written and you have to be in the same room as your ex," she explains. "To me, it was a very cathartic, very emotionally powerful sense of closure for us," she said. "It's very intense. So I wrote for Kveller about some of those aspects in hopes to kind of maybe [be] helpful to other people or other women."
