You can't underestimate how traumatic divorce is for the children.
Even after I got my divorce, the ink wasn't even dry on the paper, and I said, 'Ooh, the next time I become a wife, I got this thing down pat!' I always believed that there was someone built for me.
Divorce is just the most awful thing in the world.
Please do not ask me to talk about my divorce. Mr. Ziegfeld and I are such very good friends. It is only a little matter quite between ourselves.
In the last few years, losing my father, going through a divorce and not getting some jobs I really wanted, is making me a much more interesting person, I think. This all really does feel like a rebirth, a new chapter.
Very few people can truly divorce themselves from what they feel emotionally and sexually.
Anybody that's been through a divorce, and I hope it's something people never have to experience, it's the worse thing in the world.
People don't understand the devastation the murder of a child does to someone. Eighty percent of parents of murdered children wind up in divorce. The only thing you have in common is that horrible sadness. You can't see the joy of your previous life.

I'm not saying that people should not divorce, but at the rate at which it happens here is sick. The kids, they suffer. I don't care what anyone says.
There's something about sitting face-to-face with an attorney in an office that enables people to come to grips with the very idea of divorce - or to reconsider the idea. Like a number of my colleagues - not all - I offer that preliminary consultation for free.

I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce. But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?

The roles that men and women play are no longer the standard traditional roles of way back when but are those of two very individual people living their lives.

One study found that people who smile in childhood photographs are less likely to get a divorce.
I didn't expect to be doing a whole bunch of Amber Browns. And because it was just one book, and the father had moved away, I didn't realize I was going to have to deal more with shared custody, divorce and all those issues.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
