We know firsthand that pain arises from a failed marriage relationship. It occurs and reoccurs, lasts long and leaves scars. It is not from the technical legal finality of divorce but rather the emotional and physical separation from people we love. Disunion causes isolation and even hopelessness. Lives are fast paced and move quickly and seem to swirl about. We witness the progression of others but feel mired. The pathway seems unattainable and forward movement is ineffectual. Our realization that this is a shared and common experience has given us comfort and renewed our strength. We rely on each other and do not stand apart.
