Divorce and moving forward.


Getting divorced is a major decision in your life and the life of your family. While you may be dealing with many emotions and changes it is important to give yourself time to grieve for the loss of your marriage. While this may sound a little strange, divorce is in fact the 'death' of a marriage and couples often need to go through the cycle of feelings in order to get into a better, happier place.

Yes, you may be angry, resentful or disappointed, but now you get to open up a new chapter and who knows, maybe you and your spouse will be on better terms now that you don't have the stress of day-to-day life to deal with together.

If you have children together then maintaining an amicable and somewhat friendly relationship with your spouse would do wonders for your children! While you may not have much in common anymore, you both have the welfare of your children at heart, so make that your starting point. Let's face it, putting up a fight every time your ex drops the kids off half an hour late isn't going to make either of your lives more pleasant and it will only create a hostile environment for your children.

Remember you are still a family just the nature of your family has changed. Both parents are equally important and you both have so much to give and teach your children to shape them into well-rounded, confident individuals.
