The moment you announce that you are getting a divorce or that you just got one, people start to react as though a death has just happened in front of them. 

Divorce can be a good thing. Especially you're in a dysfunctional relationship and one person refuses to improve. That's when divorce isn't so much an issue of happiness, but a matter of survival.

Being in a bad marriage is stressful. Stress kills. If there are children involved, it's hard on them, too. Children can thrive post-divorce. In fact, kids who come from a divorced family that's happier than their miserably married parents do much better than people once thought.  

Arguing with someone on a daily basis is no fun. If you can't communicate with the person you're married to, terrible things can happen not just to your body, but your future. You can end up in debt, poor health, and sometimes the stress of being in a bad marriage can lead to serious depression.

It's no wonder that people who are in unhappy marriages, emotionally divorce first, then feel like their life has gotten a new start when their divorce becomes legal. For some women, getting divorced is the start to their personal success story, even though it seems like a divorce is a failure. 

If you've ever been on the receiving end of condolences by people who think you getting a divorce is a bad, thing.

Some people really believe that divorce is bad, and that marriage, even unhealthy ones, should last forever, it's annoying. Chances are, if you're marriage was rotten, you don't regret getting a divorce. 

No matter how happy you are about your divorce, there is still a sense of guilt. But when pros and cons are measured up, and the pros win, you may want a solid post-divorce comeback that helps to put things back into perspective for them, and yourself, too.
