Your husband recently told you he wants a divorce, and right now all you can feel is numbness and shock. You’ve spent years together, and you’re not sure how you are going to live a life that doesn’t include him in it. Additionally, he is financially well off, and you were not prior to the marriage, so you are also worried about what your money situation will be like now.
Over the next few days, weeks, months, and even years, you can expect to feel a range of emotions. Going through these feelings is normal, and just about everyone dealing with divorce experiences the same types.
How You Can Expect to Feel During a Divorce
Not every day will be good, but every day won’t be bad, either. You can, however, expect that you’ll likely feel a range of emotions—such as these—each and every day:
- Intense anger. When going through a divorce, you may feel hatred and resentment like you’ve never felt before. Your husband may have left you for another woman, or may be trying to make your life miserable, so feeling anger towards your soon-to-be ex is entirely normal.
- Worry and stress. You may wonder how you’re going to make it without your husband, since you can’t remember a time when you were without him. The financial aspect of the divorce can also cause you to have many sleepless nights.
- Despair. Even if you and your husband mutually decided to get divorced, you may still experience deep feelings of despair. The ending of a marriage is often sad for all involved and you may feel depression, guilt, and remorse as a result.
