What is heart divorce?

In our book, My Heart Got Married And I didn’t Know It,  we use the term heart divorce to describe the break up of a long term relationship that was characterized by its’ length (long!), cohabitation (either full time or part time) and sexual intimacy that started early for the couple. Heart divorce is the intentional dissolution of a heart marriage. Why is heart divorce different from a regular breakup?  Couples who break up after many years together often experience the devastation, loneliness and heartache that legal divorce creates.  We propose that when long term relationships, or heart marriages, end- there needs to be a term to describe the situation that gives validity to the difficulty of the breakup.  This term allows the couple and their friends, family members or work associates- to provide better support and understand more clearly what has happened.  Read more about it in My Heart Got Married And I Didn’t Know It, available on www.amazon.com or www.myheartgotmarried.com
