Many people are surprised when they are served
divorce papers, but many still feel that life will go back mostly to normal, to
even better once everything is finalized. Unfortunately, it is not quite
that simple. While knowing some things ahead of time may not change the
fact that a divorce is necessary, it may help you to have realistic expectations
about the outcome of a divorce. Here are some things that writers have
shared online about their experiences.
- First off, you may have been the one who asked for the divorce, and things
may be proceed amicably, but there is no getting around the fact that
a divorce is painful.
- If you have kids, you will have to live with the difficulty of having a
diminished influence on your children's lives.
- Your relatives and friends will end up choosing sides, and sticking to
them. It won't even matter if there was abuse or infidelity.
- You and your ex will always have financial concerns to go over. This is
true even for rich couples. And of course, these concerns can open the
door to conflicts you will have to be prepared to handle.
- NEVER vent about your ex in front of your children. Of course the temptation
can be huge, but if you succumb to it, there will be nasty repercussions
for you and your kids.
- You will wake up trying to remember if your kids at your place that night or not.
- One day, your kids will know who asked for the divorce, and this can bring
on a measure of resentment.
- There is good news too. Believe it or not, time will eventually be on your
side. Things improve daily. And some day, you will be ready to date again,
but do not let yourself feel pressured on this count. This readiness will
happen in its own time for everyone.
