"I wanted to write about some of the more complicated aspects," the Big Bang Theory and mom of two explained to Access Hollywood Live on Friday. "And specifically, there's certain things [related] to Jewish divorce that people don't know about."
Mayim, now 37, and her husband of nine years filed for divorce in November 2012, and their split was finalized in May 2013. But even though the state of California recognized the marriage was over, the former spouses still needed to get divorced through their faith.
"There's something called a ‘Get,'" she said. "There's a religious process. 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."
"To me, it was a very cathartic, very emotionally powerful sense of closure for us," she added. "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."
