In brief: Depends...

The circmstances surround the break-up of a marriage will have a direct influence on how long it takes both parties to 'put it in the past".

In brief: Divorce

This varies according to the resiliency of your personality and to the degree of emotional trauma caused by the marriage failing.
Consult a clinical psychologist who can help you work through this period of your life, will likely cut down the time it takes to recover. Best.

In brief: It varies; take care

The good news is that people are better off if they exit a bad marriage.
On the whole, divorces are difficult journeys, and satisfaction generally drops in the aftermath. It can take years to adjust, but most people do bounce back. Occasional bouts of grief are to be expected. Be patient and kind to yourself.
