Sometimes marriages do not work out, and both partners might opt to seek a divorce. Divorces can cause a partner to develop health complications such as depression. This is mainly due to the stream of emotions such as anger and fear that one experiences when going through a divorce. Divorce can also strain your financial income as you struggle to cater for your kids on your own.
