Although a marriage may have blossomed at first, things can definitely change over time. Some spouses are simply not a good match for each other. Instead of struggling to make it work, a divorce could prove to be the best option. Here are some of the advantages to getting a divorce.
No more fussing and fighting
It is not uncommon for couples to have disagreements. However, consistently arguing on a daily basis is not a good sign. Over time, the stress can wear down a person. If the married couple has children, they will also be impacted by the constant feuding. A split between the two people will allow everyone in the home to get some peace.
Become happy again
Contrary to popular belief, marriage is not always peaches and cream. In a perfect world, every marriage would lead to eternal joy. While marriage is supposed to be a time of happiness, some people become bitter and frustrated. Fortunately, a divorce could actually be an inspiring event for both parties. After the divorce is settled, the two people can continue their search for happiness.
Help raise the kids
No child should have to live in a volatile household. While a child may initially find the divorce to be a downer, they will eventually understand the situation. Both parents will have a chance to spend quality time with their children. According to Cordell & Cordell, many people find that they get along better after the divorce.
Opportunity to meet a suitable partner
A divorce is not the end of the road. It is actually the beginning of a brand new life. Although their past marriage may not have worked out, they can still look forward to a future with someone else. As the old saying goes, there are plenty of fish in the sea. The perfect match is just waiting to be found.
Helps to relieve pressure
The burden of a poor relationship can weigh heavily on a person’s conscious. Some people feel pressure to stay in a bad marriage. However, there is always a light at the end of a tunnel. A divorce will allow everyone to breathe a big sigh of relief.
A divorce is not always a bad thing. In some instances, it is the best option for a marriage to come to an end.
Divorce attorney Craig Cherney states “Many divorcing spouses are unaware of the Collaborative Divorce process which many modern couples are now relying upon in terminating their union. Rather than have a stranger in a black robe (the judge) make really big decisions about your life, your children and your assets, through the collaborative process, you and your spouse and a small group of trained collaborative professionals can navigate you through the divorce without ever once setting foot in a courtroom. Collaborative divorces usually resolve in half the time, half the cost, and with almost none of the emotional baggage, one can often encounter in conventional litigated cases.”
I just want to say that you have a beautiful family mommy peach! 🙂
I personally think that divorce or annulment in the philippines shouldn’t be encouraged. I have a conservative view when it comes to family and marriage (I believe there is forever! LOL!) but I also understand that things can go haywire. If a married couple can no longer fix their marriage after several attempts even with the help of a professional shrink, it is the parents responsibility to reassure their kids of having a happy and supportive family even when the mother and father will live separately. It’s a difficult process for everyone involve but I also believe that everyone deserves to be happy.
Anne V says
I only have one view of divorce, the one God honors. In the Bible, divorce is ONLY valid when the husband’s reason for divorcing his wife is when she commits adultery with another man. It may seem unfair to some women, but I am more on what’s morally right with God (He is just) than girl power or equality which is a world view. 🙂
I agree! A divorce is not the end of everything, sometimes its the beginning of something better.
