According to HuffPost Divorce readers, there are numerous things that divorced people wish others knew. Below is a summary of a few of the pieces of advice that were given:
- Most divorced couples have tried every option available to work things out and make their marriage work. Nobody enters into marriage with the intent of getting a divorce, but sometimes it is what is best for you and your children. Nobody knows your situation and what is the right thing for your family, so judgments about your divorce are often incorrect.
- Because no two people are identical, all divorces are unique. Everyone has their own way of dealing and grief can take a variety of forms. However you need to deal with your divorce, do it and be fine with it. Also, don’t think there is a certain time frame or deadline for getting over the end of your marriage.
- Being on an emotional rollercoaster is normal. Divorce brings out every emotion possible, so prepare yourself. Allow the emotions to come and handle them as best you can.
- The divorce process doesn’t have to be bitter and full of fighting. If a couple acts maturely and keeps things amicable, the process goes smoother and you can usually avoid the extremely high attorney fees.
- Divorce can feel like the death of a loved one. Just because divorce is more commonplace in today’s society, it doesn’t mean that you don’t feel significant loss and pain. The end of a marriage is life-altering and it is one of the most difficult things you can go through.
- Never judge somebody for getting divorced and don’t give unsolicited advice. Just let them talk it out.
- There are some positives about getting divorced. For a more thorough discussion, please read our blog titled “Life After Divorce – Focus on what is Meaningful.”
