There are times, while a woman is in the middle of a divorce, when she feels so alone. She'll lie awake at night, feeling her deep, terrifying, heartbroken feelings and wondering how long before she feels "normal" again, whatever that is. It's at those moments when it's most helpful to know that other women (and men) have been there, felt those same feelings, and come out all right. That's why I love these quotes about divorce.

Sometimes finding the right words to solidify feelings is just what the doctor ordered. And these quotes, from writers, directors, and comedians, truly capture what it feels like to go through a marital breakup. They can help a woman through the darkest and most difficult of the breaking-up process -- when things just feel like they will never be normal again. Or perhaps they can add a bit a levity to a situation that feels hopeless. We all need a reminder that things will be okay after heartbreak. These 9 quotes are funny and true and, above all else, they let me know that there is life after the big split and that I  am going to be okay. Sometimes I just need a reminder of that fact, and I'm proud to be able to share these words with other women who can benefit from their wisdom.
