Divorce. A resumption of diplomatic relations and rectification of boundaries.
  View quote | Bierce, Ambrose quotes

Two lives that once part are as ships that divide.
  View quote | Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G. quotes

People named John and Mary never divorce. For better or for worse, in madness and in saneness, they seem bound together for eternity by their rudimentary nomenclature. They may loathe and despise one another, quarrel, weep, and commit mayhem, but they are not free to divorce. Tom, Dick, and Harry can go to Reno on a whim, but nothing short of death can separate John and Mary.

Divorce is a game played by lawyers.
  View quote | Grant, Cary quotes

Many divorces are not really the result of irreparable injury but involve, instead, a desire on the part of the man or woman to shatter the setup, start out from scratch alone, and make life work for them all over again. They want the risk of disaster, want to touch bottom, see where bottom is, and, coming up, to breathe the air with relief and relish again.

Being divorced is like being hit by a Mack truck. If you live through it, you start looking very carefully to the right and to the left.
  View quote | Kerr, Jean quotes

Every divorce is the result of selfishness on the part of one or the other or both parties to a marriage contract. Someone is thinking of self comforts, conveniences, freedoms, luxuries, or ease. Sometimes the ceaseless pin pricking of an unhappy, discontented, and selfish spouse can finally add up to serious physical violence. Sometimes people are goaded to the point where they erringly feel justified in doing the things that are so wrong. Nothing of course justifies sin.
  View quote | Kimball, Spencer W. quotes

Love, the quest; marriage, the conquest; divorce, the inquest.

When two people decide to get a divorce, it isn't a sign that they don't understand one another, but a sign that they have, at last, begun to.
