Divorce is harder than death. It is. With death you have the irrecoverable loss of someone to deal with, but with divorce, you have rejection too. As a process, divorce is much more cruel. And, theoretically, reversible. Death is inert. Divorce is mutable, an unstable, unknowable value. With death there is a grieving process, an equation, it makes sense. Divorce is messy, an indivisible fraction, remainders all over the place. Divorce is harder than death. I’m not saying it’s any more of a loss. But it’s a harder one. More complex.
