Timing is what they have in common. After summer vacations are over, many Kentucky couples could decide that the time is right to divorce. Few parents want to announce a divorce before the family vacation, so many wait until they return, but before school starts. This also gives parents time to let their children get used to the idea since telling them as soon as possible could help prevent problems later.
Regardless of whether a Kentucky resident married young, married for the second or third time or reconnected with an old flame on Facebook, he or she may deal with divorce differently, depending on gender. Research shows that men and women view the process differently. Women take more time to process their emotions while men want to move through the process quickly.
Even when the parties want to work together, this could cause some issues when attempting to negotiate a settlement. This is where a mediator could come in handy to keep the parties on track while ensuring that each of them listens to the other. Many couples are now using such alternatives to a traditional courtroom divorce in order to save money, time and effort.
If this is the last summer that a couple wants to remain married, they can end on a positive note. It is not necessary to let a judge make the decisions. The parties can work together to create a divorce settlement that satisfies each of them. This can help reduce the stress ordinarily associated with a divorce, which could be especially useful if there are children involved since they need reassurance that their parents will continue to be there for them regardless of whether they remain married.
