Going through a divorce or the end of a civil partnership can be highly upsetting and stressful. However, it’s important to remember that many, many people have gone through this before and have come out the other side okay.
Below we share 10 famous quotes about divorce that illustrate some key reasons divorce doesn’t need to be the total disaster you may fear that it will be.
