The Hidden Emotional Costs of Divorce

The Hidden Emotional Costs of Divorce

DIVORCE.  One of the most dreaded words in the English language as far as I’m concerned.  You are losing someone with whom you have shared your life; someone whom you had planned to spend much more time with.  You are losing affections, memories, perhaps children, furniture, etc.  Don’t roll your eyes, furniture has an emotional part in this—it’s a loss.

But divorce from your spouse is just the surface part of the divorce.  You lose friends; brothers-in-law; sisters-in-law; nieces; nephews, mothers/fathers-in-law (okay, you get to chose whether this is good or bad!); and friends.  And, let’s not forget pets.

Yes, divorcing your spouse is simply the tip of the iceberg.
