Why a divorce isn't the 'failure' it is often portrayed as

It is very easy to portray divorce as a "failure." The couple failed; or one of the spouses failed; or their relationship failed. Something inherent to the marriage equation broke, and the resulting divorce is supposedly the culminating failure of that broken aspect.

But we are here to tell you today that divorce is not a failure. To the contrary, divorce can actually be a success -- something that frees the spouses from a relationship that not only didn't work, but was actively affecting them in a negative way. The divorce, in this context, is actually a solution to the real problem: an unfulfilling marriage.

There are also many lessons that you can learn from a divorce. You will undoubtedly grow as a person, as you deal with the next (hopefully fulfilling) chapter in your life. You undoubtedly persevered through some tough times with your spouse. And just because you and your spouse aren't together anymore, it doesn't mean you can't revel in the memories that you shared.

Look, divorce is inherently complicated. But once you deal with the legal complications of this matter, there are a lot of positive personal, emotional and mental aspects to a divorce -- even though it may not seem that way.

We know it's scary to go through a divorce, but with the right attorney on your side, it will shock you how quickly that fear will subside. When you and your spouse are headed for divorce, make sure to get an experienced family law attorney.
