3 Surprising Facts About Divorce
1. TALKING POORLY ABOUT YOUR SPOUSE IN FRONT OF THE KIDS CAN ONLY MAKE THINGS WORSE.
It is important to remember that while you have chosen to separate from your spouse, your children have not necessarily come to that same conclusion. Avoid talking negatively about your spouse when conversing with your children if possible, and never involve kids in divorce-related issues that do not immediately concern them. You chose to divorce, they did not. It’s important to be aware of how you speak about your spouse in front of them. Remember, this is tough on them too. They had no say in the matter, so keep them in mind.
2. BE COOPERATIVE AND YOUR DIVORCE WON’T TAKE AS LONG.
Many people think that they have to stand up for what they deserve no matter what it takes. While it is important to ensure that your rights are protected, it is equally important to realize that the more you and your spouse argue, the longer – and more expensive – your divorce process will probably be. Before you engage in a dispute over who gets the cast iron skillet, consider the long-term impacts. Remember, what’s actually important here. At the end of the day, these are material items.
3. YOU CAN ACTUALLY AVOID GOING TO COURT IN A DIVORCE.
The media likes to dramatize high-profile divorce cases that take place in a courtroom, with the equally angry spouses each represented by a ruthless attorney. However, it is important to realize that many divorces can (and are) completed via mediation alone. Mediation is often much less time-consuming and much more affordable. If you and your spouse are willing to discuss things diplomatically, mediation may be a much more attractive option. Remember, you both can likely agree that you want to get through this quickly and without spending more money. Focus on that. Find your common ground.
