Life After Divorce

A divorce is not an easy thing, especially when you consider the perspective of more conservative cultures and communities. There is a lot of pressure to stay married regardless of how bad the marriage itself may be, so a lot of people never go through with the decision. Some people are strong enough to make the decision in a few days, months, and in some cases the idea of going through the divorce can come after years, sometimes decades.
