17 Divorce Stories to Help Navigate Marriage Separation

The liminal space of divorce can be an extremely unsettling time to navigate. It is not uncommon to feel disoriented, as if you’re moving underwater, or the whole world has shifted diagonally and no one else seems to have noticed.

Brain fogs are common, as everything that once was certain falls away, and the juxtaposition between what was and what will be becomes jarring. What’s the best way to make it through these months or years? I’m hoping these 17 divorce stories will help.
