Better yet, don't get divorced. I know it is unavoidable and completely justified in some situations but those are the exceptions. All divorce can be attributed to selfishness, either on one or both of the parties - pure and simple. And "no", it doesn't take "two to get divorced". One person can do it quite nicely on their own. Instead of thinking about "me", think of your children, your spouse, your extended family, even your future self and work through the issues. It isn't easy but it wasn't meant to be easy. As people mature, things can and will work out and life can be really, really sweet. And before I get rebuttals about how "your" particular divorce was unavoidable and how "I'm mean" etc, if your divorce truly was unavoidable and you didn't have any choice in the matter, I'm not referring to "your divorce". I'm referring to the VAST majority of divorces today that result from immature selfishness.

No marriage, no divorce. If two people want to be together, let it be a daily decision. The act of a lifetime commitment becomes too daunting for most people and affects behavior negatively. In terms of providing a framework for a lifetime of productivity and fulfillment, those advocating early and singular marriage are wrong.
