A Divorce Can Be Letting Go, Not Giving Up

On behalf of Tasha K. Schaffner of Schaffner Family Law posted in divorce on Thursday, December 14, 2017.

Every engaged couple hopes for the best when they decide to say the vows that are meant to join them for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, life can take many twists, and the “I do” may become an “I cannot.” Regardless of what may have changed, many Kentucky families may have learned that a divorce is not always an end, but possibly a beginning.

Recently, one woman shared her experiences and what she learned when she sought a divorce from her husband of 17 years. She related how she and her spouse came from parents who had stayed married for many years, and therefore, she viewed a divorce as a failure. As time went on, though, she came to see her marriage as no longer a positive relationship but rather one that had to be endured.

Since her children were still quite young, she was questioned about the wisdom of her decision. However, she claimed that seeking a divorce from her spouse would show her children that it is better to leave a bad relationship than remain and be unhappy. She also felt it would deliver a message concerning how relationships should work instead of one where the parties do not relate in a positive way to one another.

This woman also believed that her sons would be more accepting of a divorce while they were younger rather than waiting until they had grown. She stated that she learned that her divorce was more about letting go of misery rather than giving up on something. There may be many Kentucky men and women who find themselves trying to survive in a bad marriage and are seeking a way toward a better future. A compassionate and knowledgeable family law attorney may be able to help them on their path toward a more positive tomorrow.
