When you think about divorce, what are some thoughts that first come to mind? The truth is that every divorce is different, but it’s likely all couples involved in a divorce will cycle through the full range of emotions at some point in the process. When we look at people in the public eye, like celebrities, they may all appear to handle it effortlessly. It’s possible that this could be some couples’ experience, but the opposite can also be true.
One such celebrity is speaking out after her divorce with star Channing Tatum. She speaks about the profound loss she felt, how she thought she would be making emotional progress only to fall back down into a negative spiral of emotions and how she doubted if anything was ‘real’ in her life. Infidelity was alleged on behalf of her ex and she admitted she struggled emotionally with learning that information as well.
She spoke about wanting to remain graceful, even throughout the stress and the changes. It appears that after facing the divorce and separation from her ex, she has been able to move on into a new relationship. The goal of a divorce is to begin anew, whether that be on one’s own or to eventually move into a new, welcomed relationship. The finalization of a divorce can be the end of a marriage but also the start of a new beginning.
Divorce is a legal process, but it also has emotional repercussions. It can affect not only the spouses but also their family members and friends. At the end of the day, a couple needs to decide what is best for them.
