If you are married, then you have entered a legally binding contract based on your love of another person, so when that contract comes to an end, there will be intense emotional challenges to overcome. More importantly in some respects, there will also be legal hurdles and challenges to resolve. That said, LGBT couples do face some specific legal challenges that straight couples will never know.
