Is there such a thing as a “good divorce”?

You’ve probably heard the myth of the good divorce: the couple who mutually decided that their marriage wasn’t working out, had an amicable talk with their lawyers during an easy divorce, and now play racquetball together once a week and go on family vacations together with their kids.

 

While these divorces probably do exist in small numbers, it’s important to understand that your focus shouldn’t be on a good divorce, it should be on the best divorce process possible for you and your kids. A “good divorce” requires certain behavior from both spouses – you can only control your behavior and your choices. For many, the focus should be on a fair, fast, and equitable divorce that offers you a new start and nothing more.

 

Keep in mind, too, that “good divorces” don’t always start off as good divorces. Divorce is usually a painful time filled with change, confusion, and uncertainty. A new study has shown that many ex-spouses are able to improve their co-parenting relationship with their ex-partner in time, with the help of good communication, growing maturity, and the realization that their kids need them to get along.
