Take steps to improve your emotional state during divorce

The end of a marriage usually doesn't come as a shock. You have probably been thinking about how the situation has been deteriorating. During this time, you can prepare yourself for the divorce that might be forthcoming. One of the easiest things you can do right now is gather a copy of financial documents that you might need when you go through the property division process. Having these can help prevent your ex from trying to leave assets off the declarations for the divorce.

Infidelity: What prompts it and where does it lead?

Most spouses would agree that when they got married, they expected their partners to be faithful. Marriage can be tough, as life experiences, health problems, financial problems and any number of issues can weigh heavily on a relationship, especially regarding intimacy. Marriage largely consists of an ebb and flow of daily interactions between two people who have committed themselves to providing companionship, support and fidelity to each other for the rest of their lives.

Whether you planned your wedding for months and went all out on a lavish celebration with hundreds of your closest friends and family members or you dashed off to elope with a justice of the peace officiating your union, getting married was likely one of the most significant decisions you had made in your life up to that point. Similarly, deciding to file for divorce is also an intensely personal, weighty decision that most people do not take lightly.

Go into your divorce proceedings armed with information

One thing is certain about divorce: you will have to make some difficult decisions as part of your negotiations with your spouse. These will vary according to your circumstances, but you must think about what is truly important when it comes times to make those choices.

Have you been dealing with these divorce issues?

Not many people would say marriage is easy. To the contrary, most spouses, perhaps including you, would say that marriage can be rewarding and pleasant but also challenging and problematic, sometimes even within the same day. Has your marriage seen more bad days than good in recent months (or years)? If so, you may be able to relate to certain issues that many people cite as causal factors in divorce.

Tips to plan for the new year as your marriage ends

Who do you want to be in 2019? What do you want your life to look like? Remember, you have complete control over the course your life takes from here on out.
