What’s the secret to sibling success? Evidently, an ugly divorce. At the very least, that is how it went down for Ellen Umansky and her two brothers.
Ellen’s parents separated when she was 9. “They beloved us deeply, but there were battles to be won — emotional, reputational, financial,” Ellen wrote in her Modern Really like essay.
Ellen and her brothers were flung into a new reality of parental feuds and convoluted calendar arrangements. Amid this, her brothers became her spouse and children in just the family members — her “one continuous and convenience.”
Today’s episode is about “Team Umansky,” as Ellen’s partner phone calls them, a device that has stuck with each other from adolescence via adulthood.
