Some marriages simply cannot be saved. It doesn’t take much probing into any single divorce out of the thousands that occur every year in the US to determine separation was perhaps the best possible solution. However, as the divorce rate continues to climb in America, it begs the question, What factors should we consider when approaching divorce?
Many people consider divorce the worst possible outcome, the perfect storm of messy familial relationships and crippling financial circumstances. Be confident that speaking with the appropriate attorney in your case can make all the difference in a divorce settlement. In the meantime, there are certain factors to consider in determining whether the marriage is salvageable.
Communication is key. If either partner exhibits complete unwillingness to communicate about the issues plaguing the marriage, it’s difficult to imagine circumstances changing for the better. It becomes necessary to monitor the behavior of partners, yet take exception to monitoring your own behavior as well.
Those fully committed to making things work may additionally consider counseling. Both partners must be fully committed to the opportunity to see a specialist, allowing themselves a chance to see their own limitations in new light.
While divorce may be the best solution, it’s never a condemnation.
