"Neither of us were ever the same again after the divorce."
This is the most amicable divorce I've ever seen. That's because the love was still deep, if not deeper, but they were just two people who could not live together.
Throughout their courtship and marriage, they loved each other, but never liked each other. It was only when they lost each other when they learned to like each other.
It is possible to love someone without liking him or her.
