How Divorce Can Actually Be Healthy For You!

New research is showing that divorced people can lead happy, healthy lives!


I have a friend who was recently divorced. Having known her for years, and knowing the history of her marriage, I couldn’t be happier for her that she is finally free. But here is the catch – so is she!


The stigma of the sad, lonely divorcee, facing the struggles of parenting alone amidst an onslaught of health issues, has finally been proven false. While former research tended to promote the idea that divorced people suffered a greater number of health problems like cardiovascular and respiratory disorders, new research is shedding new light on this area. And crying foul.


A new study, conducted by researchers at University College London, now has evidence to support the fact that divorced people, in particular those who remarried, are no more likely to suffer health problems than people still in their first marriage. There is even evidence to suggest that divorce can positively affect one’s health. For example, men who got divorced in their late 30’s but chose not to remarry, actually showed lower rates of diabetes and other similar conditions, than married men.


Another interesting finding is the fact that cohabitation, not marriage, was the factor that had the greatest impact on a person’s health.


According to the results of the study, unmarried couples who lived together in the long-term were found to have almost identical health levels to those of long-term married couples. This fact was backed up by findings which proved that unmarried people who lived without a partner were actually the people who seemed to suffer the worst health.


Parting ways with a spouse to whom you have been unhappily married, will provide you with an opportunity to start over. To focus on finding yourself and pursuing your dreams, making a life that you will enjoy living. As I can tell, simply by looking at my recently divorced friend, the freedom that comes after one is finally released from a deeply unhappy and unfulfilling marriage can be your ticket to a new and wonderful life.

I went through my child custody case with open eyes believing that the courts would see the truth, but I was wrong. As a college graduate and current masters student I thought I could handle this on my own. I tried everything I could, filed motions, co-parented, begged for explanations and I got nothing. I felt lost, stressed, helpless, alone and backed into a corner. So after a heartbreaking moment I finally decided to seek help and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. When I met Stephanie she changed everything for me. She helped me in ways I never thought was possible going above and beyond what I ever expected a lawyer to do in order help me feel safe. Although I'm still in the process of my case I can say with an open heart and clear mind that having her assistance has changed my life. She puts my daughter first and I will be forever grateful for that. For the first time since this whole court mess started I finally feel like I can breath again and it's amazing. I would highly suggest this brilliant woman to anyone. So if you're considering getting a lawyer, or considering this it. They will absolutely help you in any way they can. I know they did for me.
