Laura Stewart was six weeks pregnant when her husband asked for a divorce, leaving her utterly devastated.


The 36-year-old former teacher from North London shared her excruciating heartbreak in an emotional piece on The Sun.


When I pushed him to tell me what was wrong, I couldn’t have dreamed that he’d ask for a divorce. Yet two hours later, he was gone and my world fell apart.”

She shared how she suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following the break-up but managed to get back up.

Stewart is now a relationship and dating coach who gives advice based on her painful experience with love.



Her love story began with matchmaking by her friends. She and Charlie were set up by their common friends. They quickly hit it off after meeting in August 2013. She was 30 years old at the time, with a string of failed romantic relationships in her past.

“Within nine months, we’d moved in together. Things were happening fast, but it felt right – he was everything I’d been looking for. Then in August 2014, on holiday in Santorini, Charlie proposed,” she wrote.


A year later, they tied the knot in a glamorous ceremony at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. They went to Sri Lanka for a honeymoon.

They decided to try for a baby at the end of summer 2016, and she became pregnant after just two months.

“But on the morning of the day we were going to tell my parents the news, I felt like Charlie was acting distantly. When I pushed him to tell me what was wrong, I couldn’t have dreamed that he’d ask for a divorce. Yet two hours later, he was gone and my world fell apart,” she wrote.



What followed were months of agony. In December, she decided to terminate her pregnancy.

“I knew I couldn’t bring a baby into the world under those circumstances – especially as I didn’t know if I was ever going to be able to piece myself back together again,” she shared.

She sank into despair, eventually getting diagnosed with PTSD.

“Through talking with friends and family I found some strength, and with trauma counselling I was able to function again and go back to work,” Stewart wrote.

She has recovered from the devastating breakup and is now eager to help others who want to have a healthy relationship through her relationship advice called “The Blue Ticks”.
