What is the hardest part about a divorce?
We’re all different, and divorce affects each of us in different ways, but generally speaking:
If you’re the one wanting a divorce, the hardest part is usually: how miserable the process is, especially if you’re going about it with honor and dignity, but your spouse is not.
If you’re the one who was surprised by your spouse wanting a divorce, the hardest part is usually: coming to grips with the fact that the facts and events you think should be important to the court in rendering its judgment are almost never legally relevant.
Psychological Standpoint (and this is the opinion of one who is not a mental health professional)
If your marriage has been a long-term one, then one of the hardest parts about divorce is having your circle of friends and relations, the connections that define you and anchor you, your identity, your world turned upside down. It can be so disorienting as to terrify and paralyze you.
