The ending of a relationship is often a very traumatic, stressful, and emotionally overwhelming experience. It will affect all parties involved physically, mentally, as well as financially. For both partners, the transition will be difficult and they will likely experience a wide range of emotions, such as guilt, sadness, fear, and loneliness. Along with dealing with the emotional aspect of the ending of the relationship both individuals also have to deal with the logistical aspects of the divorce; such as separating finances, selling of property, moving, etc. When children are involved these difficulties are compounded even further. To help with the transition couples will often seek therapy to obtain the support needed during this difficult transition.
