Don’t Stress, Your Divorce Doesn’t Mean Failure
May 16, 2022
No one enters into a marriage with the mindset that it will eventually end in divorce. It is not an easy decision to make to move forward with a divorce or separation. Following unsuccessful attempts to work out disagreements, it’s usually the last resort for many couples.
This prompted us to consider how common an occurrence it is to go through a divorce. If you and your spouse have come to the conclusion that a divorce is the best option for everyone involved, including you and your children, we want you to know that we support your choice, even if it may not have been an easy one to reach.
Divorce Statistics That May Come as a Surprise
You are undoubtedly well aware that divorce affects approximately 40 to 50 percent of all marriages that occur in the United States. On the other hand, we would like to share with you some additional data that is both intriguing and reassuring.
Did you know that one out of every three people who are contemplating divorce has given it at least two years of serious thought? According to recent studies, one in six people thought about getting a divorce for at least a year before actually going through with it.
The claim that a divorce is a hasty or precipitous decision was debunked by research, which showed that those who contemplated divorce more commonly required a longer amount of time to reach that final decision.
These are the Factors that Most Often Contribute to the Breakup of a Marriage
Obviously, the reasons that a couple decides to end their marriage are going to be different for everyone. Domestic violence, not being ready or being too young for marriage, having expectations that are unrealistic, arguing too much, or showing a lack of equality or commitment are some of the most common reasons for a breakup. However, one of the most common reasons couples give for wanting a divorce is the fact that they are no longer in love with one another.
When you get married, the expectation is that you and your spouse will continue to mature and develop together over the course of your married life. People’s perspectives shift as they gain a deeper understanding of who they are and what they believe as a result of a variety of factors, including having children, traumatic situations, and life experiences in general. This is especially true for younger couples, who may discover that their partner does not coincide with their evolving perspectives and ambitions in life.
That is also the case for a good number of our clients as well. The decision to end their marriage was not made on a whim. In fact, many couples go to counseling in an attempt to solve their problems before deciding that divorce is the best choice for themselves and their family. When they ultimately come to the conclusion that they should divorce one another, they have tried everything else possible to keep their marriage together.
Stress Less During Divorce
People fall in love, get married, and then frequently end up divorcing their spouses for the sake of their children and themselves. Because of this, you have no reason to feel guilty if you’ve come to the conclusion that divorce is the best choice for you and your family. You have earned the right to live the life that you’ve always imagined for yourself.
