Divorce stinks. 

There's the emotional aspect of breaking up, having to split up the things you once shared.

If there weren't any children involved, you realize that this person you once thought would be there forever may never be there for you, again. 

And that's sad. 

Even when you wanted the divorce, it stings.

A part of you feels embarrassed. Another part of you wonders what will happen next while getting a divorce, and then after it's final.

But all of you realizes that no matter what life was like before you got married, you will never be the person you were before you said, "I do."

No. Getting divorced is not the same as breaking up with a long-term boyfriend or fiance. (Sorry, it's just not.)  

When you get married, especially if you're a woman, there's a lot of pressure to take on a new identity.

You're so-and-so's wife. You're no longer, Miss or Ms., you're a Mrs. 

Your last name sometimes becomes his name. 

"Me" becomes "we".

So, when a divorce happens, even one you initiated or wanted, it feels weird being single again.
