Many people going through divorce maintain that “it will all be better when the divorce is final”. Perhaps.
But a new study concludes that, on average, it actually takes eighteen months after the divorce is finalized for people to “get over” it and “move on”.
The interim can be very difficult for the newly divorced. For some, the scars and trauma may last forever.
Perhaps surprisingly, the final judgment is met with sadness thirty percent of the time and relief forty-three percent of the time.
Of course, whether you are the spouse who went looking for the divorce or one who got hit with it out of the blue, may affect your recovery time.
This study was sponsored by a website directed to fifty-somethings.
