When you are standing at the altar saying “I do” is not the time to be thinking about a year down the road, a couple years down the road, even 25 or more years down the road when you and/or your spouse are thinking in terms of divorce. But it happens, and these days, it happens more frequently than you might think.
Today’s couple getting married stands about a 50% chance of getting a divorce at some point. It seems as if the days of “til death do us part” are long behind us. Why is that the case? People change, and if the couple does not change together, they grow apart before they are even aware of what is going on. Their values change, their goals change, their likes and dislikes change, and one day they wake up and wonder who this other person is.
Sometimes things can be reconciled, but other times the directions taken individually by the two partners are so far apart that a heavy construction company could not get their roads to join together again.
Although not pleasant, divorce is a reality in today’s society. Part of the wisdom comes from knowing when to reconcile and when divorce is really the best option. This site will guide you through what to expect in a divorce, and provide information that you need to have so that you don’t get the short end of the stick in a divorce that perhaps appear to be easy, but could turn ugly without advance warning.
