Sixty percent of women get married before the age of 30, and 10 percent of them are divorced before that. Bouncing back from a failed marriage at a young age can feel like an amusement park ride that makes you fearful, panicky and sick to your stomach.
Financial instability, career demands and settling into one's own can all take a toll on a marriage. When a young marriage falls apart, the young couple can feel they didn't try hard enough, or they made the wrong choice of a partner, or they failed to see signs of an impending breakup.
A young divorced person has an opportunity to start fresh in relationships. He or she has time to examine what worked and what didn't work and whether or not there is something that can/should be changed. Relationships are a tremendous source of growth if a person takes advantage of knowledge gained.
Divorce can be a relief. Sometimes young people feel they've given too much or had to change too much about themselves in order to fit into the marriage model. If a person lost too much of themselves in the marriage, now is the time to rediscover what they want from life and what type of partner they want to share it with.
A young divorced person must remember that divorce is not the end of the world, it is only the end of a relationship. With time for healing and hopefully some personal growth, they will be ready to open themselves up to the possibility of a new love in their lives.
