Similar to other essential concepts in life, many people can attest to the fact that nothing could possibly be more complicated, long-winded, and difficult than love and marriage. Most of the time, that’s true until a divorce comes in the equation.

 

The struggle, strife, and perils of divorce, and the difficulties of being a bystander

While the idea of a perfect match is as trivial as can be when you look at love objectively, the truth about any marriage is that no one goes into it expecting a hell on earth.

Watching someone go through a divorce can be as horrible as going through it yourself. Seeing someone close to you suffer will sometimes automatically set off your protective instinct, which is not ideal given that it’s not your fight. It will be exhausting to include yourself in the battle that your friend or sibling or child is facing. Suddenly the other party’s infidelity or discretion offends you. Suddenly the other party is your enemy. It’s normal to be angry at the offending party, but that shouldn’t necessarily be the case.
