I had very good extracurricualr in colleges (both undergrad and grad). However, once I joined work, I had to endure a divorce and took me almost three years to come out of it. During that time, I tried to focus on work as much as possible (even that was hard to do)
I did not mention this anywhere in essays, but if someone asks me (in interviews) why my post college excurr are weak, is that a good reason to tell? I had a trial session with some one at clearadmit.com, she asked me that question but I did not give this reason

It's a valid explanation for dropping out of community life for a while. If someone asks, I would say simply that you had a number of family issues to deal with during that time. Your focus was on your family life and your work. Then turn to the positive: you did a lot in college (metion them - show depth of involvement and what you gained from them, and how they contributed to a happy planet) and really look forward to joining a new community where you are particularly excited about getting involved in XYZ.
