The end of marriage is devastating for both parties. Divorce may leave a woman feeling hurt, lonely, hopeless and unhappy. Whether it was her choice to end the marriage or not, she endures the scars of the broken relationship for a long time. The tensions of being in an unhappy marriage may basically be replaced by worries of different kinds, such as not finding love again or trust a man again, fear of rejection or the struggle to raise her children.

Women go through a lot of emotional distress after the divorce. It is not an easy deal to handle.

  • Financial distress

A woman may suffer financially after divorce, particularly if she was a house-wife and main caretaker of the children. Without her husband’s salary, she will have a lesser amount of money to cover bills and household expenses. According to the survey conducted in the U.S, average divorced women have less money than average married women have. Women generally don’t completely recover from the financial consequences of divorce until they remarry. Financial distress makes them weaker and also make them helpless in many situations. As we all know, money is needed to run a home as well as to take care of themselves. Women barely get any support from the families or friends when it comes to the financial thing.

  • Child custody

A divorced woman has to manage her work as well as the well-being of her children. Kids also sometimes get distracted and negative due to the whole divorce thing. A woman has to cope up with all along with taking care of her children’s happiness Most of the times children also don’t accept the step-father.

  • Social Image

Divorce is a stigma in many cultures and women have to bear the brunt of it. It is easy for a man to remarry but not a woman. The society too is interested in gossiping around about a divorced woman’s life. Her character is questioned and so is her ability to maintain a home. It is less likely that she will even find a loving and caring partner again owing to the stigma attached with divorce.

  • Family Pressures

Women have to face pressure from parents and family, as well.  They treat her as a burden if she does not have an earning source.
