Study finds women fare better emotionally post-divorce

Super Woman.jpgCouples choose to get divorced for a number of reasons. An individual may marry too young or too soon after meeting someone, financial difficulties may drive a couple apart, a spouse may cheat or spouses simply grow apart. Whatever the reason, divorce is often the best option for all involved parties. This doesn't, however, diminish the fact that the divorce process is full of challenges.

During the divorce process matters related to child custody, the division of assets, a marital home and spousal support must be discussed, negotiated and decided. With so much at stake, it's no wonder that some divorces become contentious.

Once a divorce is finalized, many individuals feel a tremendous sense of relief and optimism. According to a recent study, this sense of optimism seems to be especially prevalent among divorced women.

The study entitled, divorces make women happier than men, was conducted by a British journalist who aimed to discover differences in how women and men fare post divorce. After interviewing divorced men, the author noticed common themes related to overall feelings of sadness, anger and loss. However, for divorced women, feelings of optimism and hope tend to dominate.

Divorce isn't something that anyone who enters into a marriage thinks will be in their future. However, for roughly 50 percent of couples who marry, a marriage won't end up being till death do us part. While the end of any marriage, particularly those in which children are involved, can be regarded as a sad event; divorce is also a new beginning full of opportunities. Based on the results of this and other similar studies, women seem to more quickly and fully embrace this notion.
