It is not unusual to have doubt when the decision to get divorced is made. There may be lingering feelings for your spouse that make it difficult for you to go through with the case, or perhaps you were not the one who filed and did not want the divorce in the first place. Whatever your feelings, it is critical to be sure divorce is the answer. The time and effort required to reach resolution on important issues such as support payments and child custody should only be undertaken if you are sure divorce is right for you.
If you are unhappy, there are some things to consider before making the final decision to get divorced. Some things to think about when trying to figure out if divorce is the answer include:
- Are both parties unhappy, or is there a possibility to fix issues that are bothering only one of the spouses?
- Have you explored all your options before deciding to file? If therapy is something both parties would consider it might be a good idea to go to a few sessions to figure out if the relationship can be salvaged.
- Make health choices, both physically and emotionally. If you are in an abusive relationship, get to a safe place. This includes both physical and emotional abuse.
