Relationship Grief - How to Deal with the Loss of Someone Close

Relationships can be a minefield of grief and loss.  If we break up with a husband, wife or partner, we not only lose them, but possibly also our children, our in-laws, other relatives and friends of our partner.  We might lose a large group of people from our lives leaving us without social contact and support.  

Broken relationship grief can often be overlooked by others, as no-one has died and people don't realise how painful grief over the loss of a relationship can be. 

Woman alone, grieving the loss of a relationship

On top of the loss of our life partner, family members and friends, we may also lose our home.  We may need to re-locate to a new area.  It can be devastating.  

Other types of relationship grief may include giving up a child for adoption.  Or losing contact with your grandchildren because of divorce, separation or simply the family moving away.  

Parents may lose contact with their children if they have a falling out, or they move overseas. 

Another, often overlooked, aspect of relationship grief is where grief has a major effect on future relationships, on our ability to form new relationships and on the people to whom we are drawn when we are grieving.   

All these situations are major causes of grief which may need help to overcome.  

On this site, we have many pages which help with all kinds of loss.  We hope that the pages you will find linked here will help you with your relationship grief.
