The biggest cause of divorce, quite simply, is lack of communication.
Marriage is a partnership, where it helps if each person knows
what the other is thinking and feeling. You both need to be
sure to stay on the same page, and it helps if you share common
values and goals. If your ideals are too far apart for compromise,
a divorce is almost a certainty.
Sometimes, though, communication can be hard with both spouses
working. If both arrive home after a hard day at work, they’re
tired, irritable and don’t feel like doing anything at all.
However, if people don’t carve out time and energy to talk
to their partner, they’ll start drifting apart and divorce
is a likely result.
Divorce can be as hard or as easy as you want it to be. Of
course, you’ll need a lawyer- if you and your spouse have
drifted away from one another, you don’t really know what
they’ll do in the event of a divorce. Getting a lawyer is
a good way to safeguard your interests. It can get messy if
there are children or a lot of assets involved, but if both
people work at it, the divorce can be negotiated peacefully.
If a divorce is your only option, you should put every bit
as much effort into its planning as you did for your wedding.
Planning and knowledge of what to expect is key to making
sure that you get a fair deal.
