Unlike yesteryears when divorce was considered a social anomaly, separation of married persons has become acceptable in relationships today. Therefore, if you are going through a divorce, you should not feel socially awkward. However, it should not take away the fact that separations can be relatively disruptive no matter how civil the partners opt to become.
