BYU-Idaho:  by Chesea Rutter


Divorce can be a difficult experience, especially as a young adult. As of 2014, 4 percent of millennials aged 18 to 33 were divorced, according to a Pew Research Center study. Divorce leads to great mental and emotional change for a person, but it does not make that person inferior to or different from their peers.
