Does Divorce Get A Bad Rap?

When you work at an online divorce review site, you see a lot of users looking for a way to escape the confines of their marriage. Maybe they’ve tried everything. Maybe they just want out. One thing they’ll all share in common is the title “Divorced” whenever they open any new online dating profiles. As a once-divorced person myself, I remember very well what it was like clicking that box or selecting it from a dropdown menu. You always wished there could be a box marked “Explain” that allowed you to show potential love interests you’re not that scary.

​Alas, there never was.

​But the wider distance I’ve traveled between where I am now and my divorce, the more I’ve started to realize one thing: divorce really does get a bad rap. How? Let’s explore!

One: It teaches you to have more realistic expectations out of relationships.

​Rather than being disappointed at the realization that your new relationship isn’t the fairy tale ending you envisioned, you now look at things through a more realistic lens. Your significant other(s) are flawed, as are you, and that’s okay, because as long as there is respect and love, you can overcome anything. And if you don’t, life does go on.

Two: It allows you to have another shot at your ideal life.

​Of course, no life is ideal, but once the divorce is final, you have the opportunity to recalibrate your priorities, dreams, and goals as well as what you look for in another person. It is a ticket to taking back your life that won’t keep you stuck in an unhappy marriage.

Three: It is far more understood than you realize.

​When you start dating again, there is that urge to apologize to the person you’re dating for being divorced in the first place. Guess what. Most people understand it. You may even be dating a divorced person, who knows exactly how you feel. With close to half of all marriages ending in divorce, there are millions of people out there who can empathize, and they won’t be holding anything against you.
