Thanks for mentioning this, Nicole.

Divorce is actually a HUGE and under-discussed cause of business failure. I personally know a surprisingly large number of entrepreneurs whose companies failed as either a direct result of divorce (e.g. the couple ran the business together) or an indirect result (stress/financial issues related a divorce impacted the ability of a founder to operate).

I feel like more people should be discussing this. Or, at the least, creating some better awareness of the problem.
