Here at Yaffa Family Law Center, we talk to people every day who aren’t satisfied with their marriage for a multitude of reasons—and yet they continue to stay together. It’s hard to visualize life by yourself again, especially after being together for years. It can be difficult to separate from your partner, especially when kids are involved. With all of that said, though, sometimes divorce may just be the best solution available. It’s rarely a simple decision, nor is it one that should be made lightly. If you’ve been debating whether a divorce is right for you, here are 3 key reasons why divorce might be the right solution for you.
You’re Both Unwilling To Accommodate For The Other
Throughout the course of our lives, we naturally change and shift our interests over time. New hobbies, switching up our day to day routines, or even dietary changes can significantly affect your relationship. It’s important in any relationship that you’re willing to accommodate these changes and be willing to change yourself. If one or both partners aren’t willing to accommodate these changes for the other, it can lead to both of them rapidly growing distant from one another as they continue staying married.
In this circumstance it’s best to consider divorce as it will allow each partner to continue their own growth independently and freely of one another.
You’re Only Staying Together For The Kids
Divorce can be very tricky when children are involved. It can only feel natural to put up a front and hide your true feelings for your partner to protect your kids from experiencing such a traumatic event, however by staying together with your partner you may ultimately end up keeping everyone in a situation that isn’t healthy for anyone involved. Likely one of the worst thing you can do to your children is keep them in a hostile environment; one where you and your partner are clearly unhappy with one another. A happier parent is a better parent, and sometimes the solution to achieving that happiness is getting to the other side of the divorce process.
You Gain The Opportunity To Focus Your Energy On Other Aspects
When in an unhealthy marriage, it’s common for one or both partners to dial back their energy on other aspects of their lives and focus on their relationship. It can be a draining experience if the relationship isn’t working despite the amount of time, effort, and energy you put into it. After divorce, you gain the opportunity to focus your energy into yourself and your children. Enjoy the things you love doing to the fullest, without having to reign yourself back in for the sake of a failed marriage.
