Divorce is an unpleasant and often painful experience. Yet, it is different for men and women. The emotional component that each partner carries out of the relationship is very important. In fact, it is much harder for women to get used to the new status, but they are the ones who actively seek to overcome difficulties.
How divorce affects a woman
A change in marital status brings both positive and negative points in a woman’s life. First of all, the financial aspect – there will be less money, even if the former spouse pays child support.
It also may have a negative impact on any subsequent relationships with men. On the flip side, if the marriage was a disaster, the woman finds freedom when it is over. She rejoices at this liberation and starts to devote more time to herself and the children. It is in moments like this, when women take up sports, make a leap in career or personal development, and begin taking better care of themselves.
Still, divorce is an ordeal that most women go through alone. This decision is never easy, but it gives a woman hope of meeting a worthy man.
What does the woman feel and think at this time?
- she knows for sure that she needs a mature and reliable man to live with;
- she can assess people by their actions;
- she is ready to listen and hear a person;
- she knows her worth and is ready to get involved only in a healthy romantic relationship;
- she wants honesty and openness in a relationship;
- she doesn’t appreciate it when someone digs into her past;
- she is ready to be a faithful and loyal companion;
- she wants to trust men.
Remember that if a divorced woman has children, they will always come first. But a wise woman will find a way to balance the interests of her children and her new partner.
And please don’t ask a divorced woman about the details of this painful process, how much alimony her ex is paying or “how he could do that to her.” She will share if she feels like it. Instead, try to support her positive view of the future because life goes on!
