The social divorce is the ending of relationships with friends and inlaws. This divorce is often difficult, as people feel they can only be friends with one of the partners, or may cut off relationships with both partners. Often the inlaws feel they must side with your spouse; the old saying that blood is thicker than water applies here. Do not mourn your old friendships, develop new ones. Be civil with the inlaws and do not discuss your negative views about their family member, especially if there are children in common. This too shall pass and you will be whole once again.
