What is Divorce....

Taken from the Marriage Tribunal. Divorce is unique among life experiences. There is no precedent that can prepare an individual for it; Divorce is a process, not an event. Legal divorce can be pinpointed to a moment in time, to the signing of a court decision, but not so the experience of the divorce. The experience of divorce is the result of a series of incidents that eventually erode a relationship between husband and a wife. The ending of any marriage that has endured long enough for the two partners to invest portions of their lives, money, emotions and dreams is often a devastating experience. (Excerpt taken from the Marriage Tribunal)

Divorce is never part of your plan for life. It is a time of grief and loss of the dream you had for your marriage and life together.
