A different angle on divorce

it has been said that to walk away from a marriage is a selfish act (not important who said it) but I wonder.
Is it selfish to assert your own needs after not doing so, is it really selfish to recognise that you have some meaning as an individual? Self isn't a 'bad' thing and making a decision to move on isn't an unfeeling decision.
Look at it this way when you walk away from a partner whether it be of 2 weeks or 20 years it's not about what you are taking away from them so much as how much you have given them throughout your time together. Certainly if it is a long relationship which is approaching closure you have given that partner some of the best years of your life. Selfish? I think not. You deserve something for yourself.
