Do not use the Divider component in a form. If a divider is added to a form: 1. The page will not look different (the divider does nothing on a form page) 2. When a person fills out the form a database entry (and if the email option was set, a corresponding email will be sent) for each section. There are two for each divider (one before and one after the divider). For example, if a single divider was inserted on a form page, for every person submitting the form, there would be two records added to the database.
