How to determine if divorce is the right choice

Many people ask a series of questions before getting married to determine if it is a worthwhile endeavor. However, those in Massachusetts who are thinking about a divorce may also want to think about certain things before deciding if one should be in their future. First, it may be a good idea to make sure that an individual has truly expressed his or her concerns about the relationship to his or her partner.

Research indicates that people only hear about 30 to 35 percent of what is said to them. Therefore, an individual's message may not have fully gotten through to his or her spouse. Both parties to a marriage may benefit from creating a list of things that they need to do to save the relationship. They should also list the things that their spouses should do in an effort to save the marriage.

Those who are considering getting a divorce may also benefit from thinking about what they could lose if they leave the relationship. If what they lose doesn't offset what they gain from leaving, divorce may not be the best option at this time. Individuals may also want to think about their biggest fear in ending a relationship such as being alone or missing out on the physical intimacy a relationship may bring.

Anyone who is considering going through divorce litigation may wish to talk with an attorney before doing so. This may help an individual learn more about the process of filing for divorce as well as alternatives to litigation. Talking to an attorney may help an individual create a stronger case for why he or she should have custody of a couple's children or why he or she deserves a larger share of marital property.
