Divorce, an Act of Authenticity or Escapism?

There was a time when married couples would stay together for life.

The Purpose of Addictive Relationships

Through my own studies and life experience over the years, I came to realise that we can be compulsive and addicted to any kind of relationship, even one with a friend or colleague.
