Ways that Getting a Divorce Can Negatively Affect Your Health

Forty-one-year-old actress and model Drew Barrymore officially filed a divorce petition from her husband, actor Will Kopelman, on Friday, July 15, a report from the New York Daily News showed. Kopelman and Barrymore first announced that they are ending their marriage in April 2016, joining the list of other celebrity couples who decided to call it quits this year. Barrymore said that she felt like a failure after filing the divorce, which seeks to dissolve their marriage of four years.

Psychologist and sociologists said the effects of a divorce doesn’t end when a judge finalizes it in a court proceeding; some of its more negative effects can still be felt by divorcing parties over the years. “Everyone going through a divorce has raised anxiety,” Beverly Hills in Los Angeles County, California relationship psychotherapist Fran Walfish said, as an example. Aside from this, the chances that one can have a higher chance of sleep issues leading to higher blood pressure, heart attack, and depression, are present.
