Its actually not just about divorce / recovery --- men and women differ psychologically in many ways, some delightful some irritating. And generally men have difficulty in talking about their emotions, to anyone. And they still tend to be brought up with the "big boys don't cry" lie, and the combination is actually really bad for their health.
Men and women can ( agreed that where there are children involved the woman may find it more difficult ) get involved in rebound relationships which are actually really risky and often don't work out. They may, indeed, be seeking a quick fix for emotional pain, and instead find more pain.
And I tend to agree with Wound@ Man, that nowdays there are often more similarities between the way both sexes respond to these situations, than before, and one sees men taking what would traditionally have been seen as a womanly response, and vice versa. And I think this trend will extend, as nowadays so many young women are determinedly behaving like young men did in the bad old days. "Girl Power" is generally just Boy Power wearing a bra
