Divorce can be difficult and could perhaps be a little more heartbreaking when children are involved. There is life after the divorce for those who seek it. It is necessary to grieve, but it is also important to go through the healing process. There may be pains, disappointments, and struggles after a divorce, but one can still overcome these setbacks.
