There is nothing as painful as dealing through a divorce. Here is a collection of divorce quotes to help you cope with your situation. Read these famous split up quotations and sayings if you have recently gone through a divorce.

Divorce Quotes

It is never easy to break up a relationship and file for a divorce against your spouse. Not many people are prepared in life for a divorce and able to bear the emotional turmoil just after going through a divorce. Frustration, anger, guilt, and resentment build up after a breakup. Many times it may seem that there's nothing to look forward to and life has reached a dead end of sorts. The reasons for divorce could be just anything ranging from domestic violence to infidelity and sexual incompatibility.

Like beauty and art, divorce is also quite subjective. An interesting survey conducted recently revealed several perspectives of the individuals who participated. Some individuals opined that a bad marriage stresses out a person mentally, but a divorce would scar a person for life. However, a few others felt that its better to end a toxic marriage with a divorce, rather than suffer for years. A divorce doesn't just affect the couple involved, but makes an impact on the other members of the family too. It leaves a negative impression on the minds of children, and the emotional pain caused by it takes years to heal. One of the partners, usually the father, pays a heavy amount as alimony for the welfare of the wife and kids. Many single parents have recalled struggling to limp back to normalcy after a split. Here are some famous quotes on divorce to help you recover and get through the painful phase.
