It isn't surprising that divorce is one of the top stressors that one can go through, as it's a major life-changing event. When you marry, you go into it believing that you've found someone who you not only love, but someone who will be there forever supporting you. Divorce says there's no hope of that.
If you have children, it's even worse, as often times they just don't understand why mommy and daddy can't stay together. Divorce affects everyone involved. You can divorce your spouse, but if you're co-parenting, they're always going to be in your life — for better or worse.
Many people don't understand the need for divorce, especially if they're religious; they'll judge and possibly despise you for divorcing. When you move onto your next relationship, people may not get on board with it immediately. Everyone remembers the team of you and the ex, and it may be difficult for them to see you with someone else.
If you and your ex-partner share friends, these friends may take sides. Suddenly, another person you thought would be in your life forever is gone.
How does one deal with a divorce? Therapy helps, and so does good friends who will listen to you and be there for you. When you look back over your relationship (and you will), don't beat yourself up for any mistakes you made or red flags that you ignored. Try to learn so you don't repeat the same mistakes again.
Ask yourself if the problems were there at the start or if they built gradually. Did your inner voice try to convince you not to marry this person and you ignored it?
Astrology can tell us things about ourselves and our partners. There are some zodiac signs that ultimately don't get along. And while there may be a great attraction, the relationship probably won't be a successful one.
Here's the kind of man you're going to divorce, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries women are most likely to seek a divorce from Virgo and Libra spouses. Virgos, because they have a tendency to be too cautious and practical. A Libra partner won't work out because of their intense dislike of conflict, which will annoy the Aries woman.
If her husband lacks initiative, spends too much time considering every option before doing anything, and/or tries to limit her freedom, the marriage is done for the Aries woman.
Taurus women may be drawn to Scorpio men, but since both signs are stubborn and tend to get intensely jealous, any marriage between them probably won't last. Divorce isn't something that a Taurus enters into lightly, so any problems will need to be so major that they can't be worked out (such as infidelity, or a spouse who doesn't value home and family).
Geminis actually have a high likelihood of getting divorced. This is because they get easily bored and tend to make impulsive decisions. Geminis will most likely divorce Sagittarius and Aquarius men. The problem is that all three of these signs have such intellectual curiosity that pulls them in different directions.
Freedom and diversity are both very important to Geminis, and having the same issues come up again and again just makes them want to get out of a marriage fast.
Cancer women are most likely to divorce Aquarius men. For a Cancer individual, their home and family is everything to them, and having a home base is essential. But Aquarians thrive on change, novelty, and like to keep on the move. It's emotions where Cancers and Aquarians really differ. Aquarius tend to be emotionally detached, whereas Cancers have intense moods and emotions.
The marriages between Leo women and Aries or Sagittarius men are the ones most likely to lead to divorce. Leo women aren't that into the natural assertiveness of Aries, and it can get to the point where the Leo woman feels overwhelmed by it.
Because Sagittarius spouses constantly have their focus on their next big trip or change, a Leo wife may feel that she's not getting all the attention she needs from her husband. Also, Leos have a ton of pride, and when it gets in the way of compromise and behavior change, it can damage a marriage.
Since Virgos are perfectionists, they're going to divorce anyone who doesn't do what they're supposed to do. It can be any sign who doesn't do their share of the household chores, ignores his wife, and refuses to talk about what's happening in his head. Want a divorce from a Virgo? Just sit on your ass and do nothing.
Although a marriage between a Libra and a Leo should work, it usually ends up crashing and burning. It could be because Libra's flirtatious nature gets in the way of Leo's need for being the center of attention.
Libras prefer that people get along and things be harmonious, so they'll do everything in their power to make a marriage last, even if that means sacrificing their own needs and desires. Ultimately, Libra won't be able to keep everything bottled up and will explode.
Scorpios are very strong and domineering. They like to be the one who makes all the important decisions in a marriage, which wouldn't go over too well with an Aquarius spouse. Aquarius have almost an exaggerated need for freedom, which would clash with Scorpio's inherent possessiveness and cause a marriage to completely break apart.
The sign that Sagittarius is mostly likely to marry in the first place is a Sagittarius — because who better to understand them? Since the obligations of marriage scare the crap out of Sagittarians, they try really hard not to marry; they know it won't end well.
If they go against every instinct they have and marry, the minute their spouse tries to tie them down or if the marriage begins to feel like it's in a rut, Sagittarius is out and the marriage is over.
There's a high probability that a marriage between a Capricorn woman and a Gemini man will end in a divorce due to a personality clash. Quiet, considerate Capricorn and talkative and playful Gemini aren't the best suited for a long-term relationship together.
Over time, Capricorn will become annoyed with a Gemini husband's tendency to be flaky and undependable — two of the very worst traits a person can possess, according to a Capricorn. On the bright side, the divorce will be so amicable that they may end up being much closer divorced than they ever were married.
Aquarius are most likely to divorce a Taurus. At first, an Aquarius woman will be charmed by the sensual nature of a Taurus man, but his stubbornness will cause many conflicts between them. Also, staying home most of the time will lose its charm for Aquarius pretty quickly.
The worst is when these two signs get in an argument, which is likely since Aquarians can be a bit argumentative, and neither one will budge.
Pisces often have a very unrealistic idea of what their marriage will be like, and when things start to get real it can be difficult for a marriage to last. However, Pisces is going to do everything in their power to make a marriage work. But if they're married to a Libra, no matter how much they try, it won't work. Pisces need some alone time and Libras want to be with their partners 24/7.
