Five Good Reasons To Choose Divorce

Deciding to file for divorce is excruciatingly difficult – and often times proves to be one of the most complicated and emotional choices that you will make in your lifetime. Often, one or both spouses will spend months or even years carefully weighing the question, should we move on, or should we try to work things out?

While all marriages are different, and while you ultimately must make your own decisions about your life and relationship, there are a few strong reasons that many couples should call it quits and try to move on with their lives.

•    Your marriage involves some form of abuse. Abuse, whether it is physical, verbal, emotional, or psychological, is simply not acceptable in any way. No matter how much you may love your spouse or how much you want to keep your family together, you have to realize that abuse hurts your whole family – and that your family deserves better.
•    You and your spouse have stumbled upon an irreconcilable difference. Couples can work through a number of problems, pitfalls, and arguments, but some differences of opinion will simply never solved. If you find yourself absolutely unable to solve a problem in your marriage – whether it relates to sex, family, work, children, or even political views – it may be time to move on and find a partner who is more compatible.
•    You’ve been abandoned by your spouse. If your spouse has left you – and has been actively ignoring the vows you recited on your wedding day, it is most likely time for a divorce. The abandonment could be physical, emotional, or sexual – but all types of abandonment illustrate that your partner no longer supports you and no longer respects your marriage.
•    You and your spouse no longer love each other. If both of you mutually agree that you are no longer in love and want to move on, it is probably the best decision to divorce even if children are involved in your marriage. If neither of you feel for your partner or wish to work on the marriage, it is probably time to move on to the next phase of your life.
•    You’ve tried everything else. If you’ve been through couple’s counseling, tried to work things out, communicated openly, worked together to solve your problems, and are still struggling to stay together, it may be time to consider divorce.
