Divorce and separation can be extremely traumatic for spouses. This is especially true in situations where the marriage has lasted for a long period of time, resulting in the complete merger of the lives of the spouses. A spouse’s life can be turned upside down as now he or she will be expected to experience life and execute daily tasks without the complete support of his or her partner.
