When you’ve just gotten out of a failed marriage, moving on seems more than impossible. As much as you want to go on with life, there are things that would incessantly drag you down and make you dwell into the past no matter how much you cajole yourself not to. Truth be told, it is not the goodbye that hurts but the flashbacks that follow.
Marital breakdown, separation, annulment and divorce entail a great onus indeed. While some see it as an enlightenment and an answer to all the suffering from a toxic marriage, others view it the other way around. Some even undergo depression and worst, commit suicide. Not to mention its influence on the kids should there be children involved. Having a broken family is never nice. Growing up without a father or a mother figure or both is very difficult. Also, divorce can debilitate society considerably.
