Divorce is often portrayed as an unfortunate phenomenon and a bad thing. Yet there is plenty of evidence that divorce can be a good thing in the lives of many divorced people. This should always be kept in mind when spouses think about the pluses and minuses of divorce.

Not long ago, we talked about a study that investigated the impact of divorce on the lives of women who have experienced it. The researchers found that, especially in the first five years after a divorce, women were more likely to be happy than men were. The researchers suspected that women tend to have more advantages in navigating the post-divorce world. These advantages could include better support systems, better coping mechanisms and more skill at single parenting.

Both men and women can find their lives improved after a divorce. A good divorce lawyer can be a great help in navigating the legal and financial complexities.
