Divorce is a common topic of discussion anywhere – and it doesn’t just happen to couples who are clearly at each other’s throats and miserably unhappy.
Many people consider divorce, not just because their marriage is horribly dysfunctional, but because of the other benefits divorce can have. Here’s what you should know:
Sometimes, people just find out they aren’t compatible after they marry
It’s most likely that you hear about a couple divorcing because the two of them aren’t compatible. Maybe, early in the relationship, before marriage, there weren’t any noticeable problems with the couple, but after marriage, a ton of red flags cropped up.
Couples may seek divorce because they find their spouse is more controlling or demanding after marriage – or they may realize that they actually have two different sets of values and goals for the future.
Maybe one person is a “free spirit” and the other is grounded and focused on the future at all times. The differences between them that they each found interesting and entrancing can become overwhelming and unmanageable after marriage. Divorce can free up a couple to just be good friends, which may be better than being married.
Sometimes, couples simply fall out of love with each other
Maybe there’s no fighting in your marriage, but you and your spouse simply have drifted apart. The intimacy has died, and you just aren’t living your best life. At some point, you may decide that a divorce could free you both to pursue actual happiness.
There are many paths to consider when looking to divorce. You may need to seek legal help when weighing your options after marriage.
