How long does it take to get over a divorce emotionally?

I think it is a first question that couples usually search for an answer after their divorce is”how long does it take to get over emotional effect of divorce?

In this article I will answer this common yet essential question.

So, According to my perspective, how long an individual take to get over from his/her grieve and sadness after a divorce depends on various elements.

And while answering this question, you have to keep all of the Psychological factors in mind.

When two individuals stay together for so long ,their bond becomes strong  e.g.  like planting two trees near to each other. With the passage of time these two grow, their roots become more entangled and intertwined.

However, when you try to separate the two, you have to watch how deeply the two individuals are intertwined.

According to Psychologists:  the longer the marriage, the harder will be the healing process. However, the time span of marriage is not the only deciding factor also the health of a relationship also contributes towards deciding the period of sadness. Likewise, your faithfulness towards your partner, your age your children and also socio-economic status are all important factors.


A lot of us fear to be sad. However, it is the reality of life that we get sad on our deprivation but how long we remain lamentable depends on us.

We can expand the period and make it harder for us or we can move on towards the better future in short time span.



One key point you have to keep in mind is that sadness has an Age of their own and TRUST ME ,

No magic can help you , only you can help yourself & break the barrier within your mind.
