Divorce isn't the end of the world. In fact, there are some upsides to the end of a marriage.
Relationship experts on YourTango give six advantages to being single again.
One, according to a study by London's Kingston University, women are happier and healthier for up to five years following the end of their marriages.
Two, getting rid of the frequent arguments may get rid of the unhealthy reactions in the body that have developed.
Three, you will avoid the financial frustrations of married couples.
Four, your kids will be better off without fighting parents. Kids will see two homes where Mommy and Daddy are separately happy.
Five, you have better odds at making your next marriage last. According to the Marriage Foundation, only 31% of second-time newlyweds are destined for divorce, compared to 45% of first marriages.
And finally, you'll have an easier retirement. A study by the University of Connecticut, SSA, and National Institute of Aging found that women who divorced and never remarried found the greatest earning growth.
