Historically, people bonded in pairs to rear children and complete daily tasks. As humans evolved, marriage became formalized to ensure family property and lines of power. Today, marriage is no longer needed to form a household, which begs the question as to whether marriage is even required.
For those of us who do get married, we don’t enter matrimony expecting it to fail. But nearly half of all marriages end in getting divorced, making it an inevitable reality for some. Contemplating divorce isn’t easy. The idea of losing not just a partner, but our kids, our houses, the life we worked hard to build, and the future we planned, is frightening. And the idea of getting divorced is accompanied by a flood of emotions, including anger, grief, fear and anxiety.
But if you feel like you’ve done everything you can to fix the relationship and getting divorced is the only option, it’s possible to manage your feelings and the situation to restructure your life.
A divorce can be onerous. The hardship of losing a partner and not knowing what the future holds can cause stress, anxiety, depression, or grief, which in turn can negatively impact your physical and mental wellbeing in a number of ways.
