Most people know that the divorce rate is over 50% in this country. Separation and divorce are so common now that people may think there’s something wrong with them when they feel so conflicted, anxious or depressed. It’s also normal to feel like an emotional roller coaster for many months after marital separation or divorce.
The following are some of the most common concerns or problems that people struggle with during separation and divorce:
- Marital problems that may result in separation or divorce
- “Separation Limbo” — Couples who are separated but continue to “date,” trying to work on the relationship, or who can’t/won’t move forward with divorce
- Powerful emotional ups and downs (anger, sadness, shame, fear, relief, hopefulness and hopelessness)
- Co-parenting and helping children to cope
- Continued conflict and fighting with the “ex”
- Reactions by family and friends
- Re-defining yourself after the marriage ends
- Dating and sex during separation and after the divorce
