Not all marriages end up being the stereotypical fairy tale we know and love. According to Statistics South Africa, four out of 10 marriages end in divorce before the 10th anniversary.
A divorce is a hard process to go through, especially because everything happens all at once. In addition to the end of a romantic relationship, you also have to cope with a lot of things – changed living arrangements, new family dynamics, possible loss of friendship with your ex, reactions from both families and managing future expectations. Having to deal with financial issues, too, can feel overwhelming. However, a calm head will ensure that you achieve a long-term recovery on your finances.
