Same-Sex Marriage & Divorce

Many people are pondering the impact of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling legalizing same-sex marriages across the nation. One big issue that is lurking out there is divorce. The sad truth is that with more marriages will come an increase in divorces.

Now that the Supreme Court has removed the uncertainty of how each state will treat same-sex marriages, it also provides a means for couples to divorce regardless of where they live. No longer will same-sex couples be left in legal limbo depending on what state they live in.

So, now that all married couples have the legal right to divorce, it is important to understand the comprehensive impact divorce has on your life. Not only does it legally affect you, but it can be devastating to your finances, negatively impact yourhildren, and leave you with emotional scars that may never completely heal.

Does this mean that divorced people are doomed to misery? Of course not! It may take time, but most divorced individuals find happiness and peace. Letting go of the unhappiness and guilt can be liberating. Even in the first few months after your divorce, you may feel certain burdens start to lift.

The odd thing about divorce, is that it often motivates people to start making wiser decisions. They start working out, eating better, spending time with friends and learning from their past mistakes. Although there is no magic formula for healing from a divorce, implementing good behaviors into your life can lead to you finding a life you love.

So, whether you are a same-sex couple or not, divorce is painful. It is important to know that you are not alone.
