January is approaching and with it comes a busy time of year for divorce attorneys. Divorces pick up speed in January, as many people begin planning for a year where they can get started on a new life. Some people wait to divorce in January because it means their children get one last holiday season with their parents together. Others choose to do so because they can't imagine spending one more holiday together with their spouse.
It is not easy to go through a divorce, but many people do go through it at some point in their lives. In Western cultures, such as in the United States, over 90% of people marry before they're 50 years old. Happy marriages are helpful to both parties, but when marriages don't go as planned, they can be harmful.
Divorces aren't always easy, and it's not hard to see why some people become disgruntled during them. One spouse might be angry, hurt or frustrated. The other might seem flippant or happy about "getting away" from a relationship they no longer wanted.
When you divorce, one of the things you may worry about is your financial independence. You might have relied on your spouse for money, or you may have only worked part-time while you cared for your family. Now, as you divorce, you may not be on sure financial footing.
Divorces can drive you crazy, making you frustrated and annoy you because of the actions of the other party. At the end of the day, all you want is to move on.
When you and your spouse struggled to agree on how to raise your child while you were married, you thought that the issue was down to different parenting styles. Today, as you go through divorce, you believe it's more to do with control.
Parenting when you and your spouse are separated or estranged is sometimes difficult. Your children may struggle due to the new conditions of the relationships, and you may have difficulties when communicating with your spouse.
No one wants to go through a divorce because the intention of getting married is not to leave your spouse. Even if you agree that you need to go your separate ways, a divorce is devastating when it comes to the plans you once had for your future.
Leaving a long-term relationship is essentially the basis of a divorce. It's not easy to do it, even if you don't want to be in a relationship any longer. Your lives may be intertwined, making it difficult to break out of the relationship without damaging family relationships, friendships and other relationships you have.
