The Positive Outcomes of Divorce That Few Consider
San Diego, CA – Divorce is never an easy time. Your entire life is changing and the person you thought would be by your side forever is now going to live a life separate from you, and vice versa. While the depressive side of divorce is well-known, there can be positives to marital dissolution, believe it or not.
Children Could Fare Better
Your children don’t have to be the victims of domestic abuse to fare better in a divorce. If you and your spouse argue a lot, sometimes a divorce can save them from months and years of turmoil. By divorcing, many parents end up becoming better parents to the children and treat each other better overall. If you and your spouse can manage to get along post-divorce, that’s the best-case scenario for kids where the alternative would be constant fighting and tension under one roof.
John Griffith of Griffith, Young & Lass, serving Carlsbad and San Diego, stated, “The court always wants to do what’s in the best interests of the child. If two people can’t live together in peace, the court will see to it that the children are taken care of so that they can adjust properly once the divorce is complete.”
Relationships Could Become Stronger
Divorce doesn’t have to involve drawn-out fighting, or even any turmoil at all. If you and your spouse can remain friends, in some cases getting divorced can be the thing that strengthens your relationship. It sounds counterintuitive but remaining close with your ex can ease your stress and prevent many problems that can occur over jealousy and other issues. Here are some tips for remaining friends with your ex, which is important if you want an easy case, and if there are any children involved.
Turning a Page
If you absolutely cannot remain friends with your ex due to circumstances either within or beyond your control, at least use this time to start anew. If you can remain friends with your ex, you will have at least one new friend as you start your new adventure. Change your hairstyle, wardrobe, move to a new area (even the next town over if you want to stay near the kids), and dig into some new and interesting hobbies. You may discover a whole new you, and it would only take a major life change like divorce to discover it. As one door closes, another opens. Divorce may be the just the thing you need to see your true potential.
Getting Rid of Negativity
Some marriages have become toxic over time. Whether it’s abuse, tension, stress, or a difference of opinions, divorcing your spouse can seem like a weight lifted off your shoulders. You may feel lighter on your feet because you’re no longer walking on eggshells, and you go through your entire day without getting into a single argument. This relieving of pressure is necessary for a healthy life and sometimes divorce is the only way to realize it.
Weighing the Divorce Pros and Cons
The point is that divorce doesn’t have to be all bad. Sure, it hurts to have your entire life pulled out from under you, if you were the one served with divorce papers. And even if you’re the one initiating the divorce, you may still love the person, but that love has faded for whatever reason. Divorce hurts, there’s no two ways about it. But you should always look at the silver lining, and now you have several positive aspects of divorce that can possibly get you through.
