Those same changes brought about a much talked-about rise in divorce rates and liberalization of divorce laws.Infidelity and financial upheavals are significant causes of divorce, but the major causes are emotional; partners grow emotionally distant, experience disappointments because of unmet (and often unrealistic) expectations, or develop separate visions of life.In this section, we will talk about practical ways that divorcing people can cope with and make the best of their stressful circumstances.There are really two sides to the divorce process; the human emotional side and the formal legal side.
Divorce can trigger all sorts of unsettling, uncomfortable and frightening feelings, thoughts and emotions, including grief, loneliness, depression, despair, guilt, frustration, anxiety, anger, and devastation, to name a few.
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, USA TODAY has confirmed.
The couple married in 2014 and has been together since 2004."This decision was made for the health of the family," Robert Offer, an attorney for Jolie tells USA TODAY in a statement.
The liberalization of divorce laws has fueled non-adversarial approaches to marital dissolution, such as negotiation and mediation.
Such practices are especially beneficial for children, for whom divorce is almost always deeply distressing and whose needs are often overlooked in the process. It is now estimated that only a third of marriages will face dissolution over time.
