Is it time to consider a divorce? What you should think about

Divorce isn't right for everyone, and before you decide if it's right for you, you should look at your situation and ask yourself a few questions. First, is the relationship working for both of you? Second, are you sure you want to get a divorce? Third, have you tried everything you can to save your marriage? Once you can answer these questions, you should be able to say whether a divorce is the right option for you. If so, you can seek out help from your attorney and start the divorce process.

To start with, a marriage only works if both parties want to be involved in it. Start by being honest. Are you happy, and if not, what would you like to see change? Talk to your spouse about your needs and be authentic about what you'd like to see happen. It might not change anything to have this discussion, but it also might save your marriage.

Next, if you're confused about whether you want to get a divorce, it's probably not the right time yet. However, since the thought has crossed your mind, there probably is an underlying problem that you need to discuss with your spouse. Consider seeking out therapy or taking a marriage assessment to decide if a divorce is the right way to go or if there are other ways that you can help your marriage.

Finally, if you've tried everything you can to save your marriage including marriage counseling or making changes to help your spouse more, it might be time to call it quits. If you find yourself wishing harm on your spouse or on yourself to get out of the marriage, it is a significant sign that it's time to move on. Your attorney can help you start the process for a divorce, so you can move on with your life.
