Divorce and eating disorders

On Behalf of | May 4, 2019 | Divorce, Firm News |

Many people focus on some of the financial repercussions of divorce when they are bringing their marriage to a close, such as the amount of child support that they will receive or pay, or the manner in which their marital property will be divided. Others may focus on the emotional toll of the divorce process, and negative emotions such as depression and anxiety can give rise to other difficulties. For example, some people may develop an eating disorder as a result of their divorce, and it is vital for one to do all they can to prevent these problems, which can make life harder.

People may binge eat or develop another eating-related disorder (such as anorexia) for multiple reasons. For example, someone may feel as if it does not matter whether they take care of their health and appearance any more since they no longer live with their partner. Or, someone may feel as if their marriage failed because of their weight, prompting them to develop anorexia and place their health in danger. Both of these issues should be addressed immediately, and people should do everything they can to eat healthy both during and after their divorce.

Our law firm realizes the emotional hurdles that some people face as a result of divorce and the various ways in which the end of a marriage can impact people from a psychological standpoint. It is pivotal to stay level-headed during this time and having a better idea of the various legal options that may be available could be incredibly helpful.
