A crumbling relationship is ideal for nobody and when it goes to the extent of separation, not only is it painful but it also causes disturbances of various kinds. One of the major impacts it has is on children. As per studies, there is also a considerable level of difference as to how todays generation is viewing marriage and everything that comes along with it. As compared to their elders, the younger generation has become more careful about marriages, not rushing into marriage and also being more selective as far as choosing the right life partner is concerned.
Of course, no matter what the generation one belongs to, the side-effects of separation can be overwhelming. Loneliness and depression can come easily, and often there is no control over it after having been involved in a relationship. Another concern is for the children, so their welfare should be the tompost priority for both the separating parents.
In order to cope with the negative feelings, make sure that you reach out for help. Don't be locked up in one place in your home, or feel ashamed.
