Divorce is no one’s idea of fun and obviously is something to be avoided . But for a family in crisis, a divorce can actually be a good thing. Read on to find out why!
- Divorce ends conflict in your home.There are studies that show divorce takes a toll on childrenbut there are NO studies about the impact of ongoing conflict and violence on children in a family where the parents should divorce, but do not. Ending the stress in your family benefits your child. Divorcing may be beneficial for you too because it puts an end to living in a situation that is not filled with arguments and emotional pain.
- Everyone deserves a chance to find real, lasting love. If you are in an unhappy marriage, you eliminate the possibility of finding a more compatible relationship with someone else. There may be a perfect match out there for you if you are ready to look for it. If your marriage is completely broken, a divorce gives you the opportunity to move on towards future happiness.
- Divorce protects you. If you live together in an unstable situation, or even if you separate unofficially, your rights are up in the air. You both have equal rights to your child, meaning either one of you can take your child at any point without permission. Without the formality of a legal divorce, either one of you can use, sell, or spend all of your marital assets, and you remain liable for each other’s debts. A divorce draws clear legal boundaries and an end to these obligations.
- Divorce forces you to reevaluate yourself, your relationships and your life. Many people feel that their divorce was a turning point in their lives, forcing them to take better care of themselves and seek out a better future.
