We say it all the time -- divorce is one of the most emotional things most adults will experience. There are feelings of anger, sadness, frustration, hopefulness, anxiety and guilt. Some adults are critical of themselves and think being too emotional is a bad thing. Although there are times when it is important to keep your emotions in check, studies have shown that some emotions can actually help you during the divorce process.
According to a study that was recently published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, feelings of guilt can lead to greater cooperation between couples who are divorcing.
