Most people expect to feel a great sense of relief when their divorce is finally over. In my experience however, many people end up not feeling quite as elated as they had hoped, when the Decree Absolute comes through the post.
As a huge animal lover, I have always appreciated the value of having pets in my life. I grew up surrounded by animals and our pets were very much part of the family. Loving and caring for animals is a great lesson for children growing up. In addition, the value of the unconditional love a pet can provide a child (or adult for that matter) cannot be underestimated.
