Divorce is never easy. Even when a split is amicable, issues regarding property division and child custody can still arise. However, there is hope for those who struggle through a divorce. According to a recent study published in the Journal Social Psychology and Personality Science, there officially is a light at the end of this long and potentially difficult tunnel.

More on the study

The study, From Tribulations to Appreciation Experiencing Adversity in the Past Predicts Greater Savoring in the Present, was published in November of 2013. Essentially, researchers found that those who had gone through a highly adverse event, like divorce, were more likely to enjoy the present. Researchers came to this conclusion after surveying close to 15,000 adults. Based on their findings, those who experienced some level of adversity in the past "reported an elevated capacity for savoring."

Researchers were careful to note that those surveyed who were currently going through an adverse event reported diminished capacity for enjoying "life's small pleasures." As a result, it appears individuals must believe they have already emotionally dealt with the adverse event in order to have a higher level of appreciation.

Hope for those going through divorce

This study can provide a bit of hope for those who are struggling with a divorce. Although the process can be difficult, it may be helpful to know that this life event can help in the development of a stronger, more appreciative person.

Only one of many divorce studies from 2013

This study was only one of a large number of studies released in 2013 addressing various issues of divorce.

The Huffington Post reviewed many of these studies. A study out of the University of Missouri School of Journalism analyzed the impact Facebook can have on a marriage. According to the study, people who check their Facebook pages more than once an hour are more likely to experience conflict within their marriage. This conflict could be connected to reconnections with previous partners, potentially leading to infidelity. Another study out of Umea University in Sweden found couples who have a partner with a one-way commute of 45 minutes or longer were also at an increased risk of divorce.

Although the catalyst for divorce is different for every couple, these studies can provide an opportunity to examine and possibly discuss the strength of a marriage.

If you are considering divorce or have recently filed for a divorce, it is wise to contact an experienced divorce attorney. This legal professional can help you better understand the legal process and provide you with the tools you need to make a decision that is best for your unique situation.
