Questions that might help you decide if divorce is right for you

Most people don't decide to divorce in a split-second. Instead, there is a lot of thought that goes into the decision. If you are still in the stage of trying to determine whether divorce is right for you or not, you need to ensure that you consider some basic points.

As you go through the below questions, take an honest look at how each applies to your current situation. They might help you determine what you are going to do.

  • What is making you unhappy in your marriage?
  • Have you let your spouse know your concerns?
  • Are you willing to take steps to correct the trouble in the marriage?
  • Do you still love your spouse?
  • Are the duties of each spouse clearly outlined?
  • Will you be happier without your spouse?
  • Are you being realistic with what you think will happen?
  • Can you handle the financial impact of divorce?
  • Will the issues you have continue after a divorce?

There might be other questions that apply to your case. Make sure that you are looking at the situation as a whole. Some circumstances, such as domestic violence, don't leave much room for debate about whether divorce is appropriate or not. Once you have determined what you are going to do, you should make a plan for moving forward.

If you do decide to end your marriage, your focus will shift to the property division matters and child custody, as well as practical matters. Taking your time to work through these issues can help you to adjust to the changes that will come with the divorce.
