When it comes to the end of marriage, people process their emotions differently. Some are able to tolerate the major changes in their lives, while others struggle with various difficulties, including mental health issues. Sometimes, people even have health complications as a result of their divorce. However, many people are resilient and push through the obstacles they face with a positive attitude (which often improves their chances of a more favorable outcome).
If you are getting ready to bring your marriage to an end, you need to fully prepare yourself for the potential obstacles that lie ahead. By taking a careful approach to your divorce, you will likely have the ability to minimize the impact of your marriage ending.
Positive and negative responses to divorce
According to research that was published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, many people show resilience and handle the divorce process (as well as the hurdles that arise afterward) very well. For example, adjusting to life without one’s former spouse is often very challenging, not only in terms of emotions but also with respect to other facets of life (finances, child care, etc.). However, this study also found that roughly 10 to 15 percent of people face significant challenges as a result of their marriage ending.
Health risks and divorce
Those who experience serious problems while ending their marriage often struggle with poorer health. In fact, for those who have a very hard time managing the end of their marriage, the divorce process can increase the likelihood of health problems and mortality. It is imperative for people to focus on their well-being before, during and after their divorce.
