It is normal that where a marriage has broken down, there is usually at least one party feeling angry, sad, disappointed, or a mixture of all of those things.  It is therefore very easy for a divorce, and any associated financial or children related matters, to become a forum for airing those feelings and for parties to lose sight of what matters: moving on in a way which is most conducive to a positive future.
