My divorce was great for my financial health, but, initially, not for my emotional well being.
I did my own divorce, so spent nothing on lawyers. My wife didn't want any of the retirement accounts, even though I and her lawyer told her she should take her half. We just split the after tax accounts, house and furniture 50/50 - no alimony. I spend less and save a lot more as a single.
