Sometimes people can have a different perspective to things that you might not of thought of yourself. Whether it was a womanly issue and a man answered, or people with huge age gaps, or like in your question just anything you yourself haven't personally experienced... doesn't mean they don't know anything in my opinion.
To a degree if you can't relate or aren't familiar your knowledge can be lacking. Maybe someone close to them did experience it. Maybe they just have an opinion that's helpful.
I think people should be open to all positive advice and different perspectives.0

I have not experienced divorce, but have seen many people who have and have learned about many that I have not met. Enough to be able to show some people ways to avoid divorce, or to be more accepting of it if it does happen.
