Breaking up with a narcissistic spouse

Married couples find themselves in court moving forward with a divorce for countless reasons. Some are the result of an unexpected incident, such as a one-off occurrence of domestic violence, while other couples break up over longstanding challenges that they have been dealing with throughout the course of their marriage. For example, some people may not be compatible with respect to their personalities, such as someone who is very narcissistic. If your spouse displays signs of narcissism, it may be helpful to take this into consideration during the divorce process. It is important to avoid being judgmental in life, but there are times when you may need to pay special attention to these details, especially if you will be involved in a custody dispute, for example.

When children disagree with a divorce

Divorce can be a tricky process to approach for all sorts of reasons. Often, parents have uncertainty about certain aspects of the divorce process, such as how child custody will be split up or some other family law matter. Divorce can be incredibly stressful and for parents who have children, it can be even more difficult. Not only do child custody and child support matters often come into play, but some parents may even have a hard time discussing their divorce with their child. After all, many children do not ever want to see their parents split up.

Ending your marriage as a newlywed

While planning a marriage and in the days after the ceremony, many couples envision spending the rest of their lives with each other. However, various things can go wrong, and some marriages do not work out. In fact, some people decide to split up as newlyweds, and you should not feel trapped in a marriage just because your family spent a lot of money on the wedding or you feel like you have to stick it out even though you know that the marriage will not work out. For example, some people may see a different side of their spouse once married, whether a couple is simply incompatible or domestic violence is involved.

Divorce and the approach of the holiday season

For many families, the holidays are a time when everyone comes together, and people catch up with loved ones. The holidays can also bring up various stressful issues, and this is especially true for a couple that is in the middle of a divorce. Some people who have already broken up with their spouse may still attend a holiday celebration together, for various reasons, while others may avoid relatives during the holiday season because of their divorce. Some people who are in the early stages of working through a divorce are unsure whether or not they should visit their in-laws during the holidays.

Growing apart and deciding to divorce

A couple may split up for all sorts of reasons. Some people are never able to get over their spouse’s infidelity, while other people file for a divorce due to domestic violence, such as physical or verbal abuse. Some people may even move on from a marriage because they have found a new partner. Moreover, some marriages come to an end because a couple has simply grown apart. This can happen to many couples and it is not uncommon for people to change dramatically during the course of a marriage.

When your spouse unexpectedly files for divorce

Often, people view divorce from the viewpoint of someone who has decided to file a petition or has given their divorce a considerable amount of thought. However, some people find themselves in court after their marital partner unexpectedly files for a divorce. If you recently found out that your spouse has decided to bring your marriage to an end, you may have many questions and you could be struggling with other difficulties, such as strong emotions and uncertainty about your future. It is pivotal to be prepared, regardless of whether or not you were expecting your marriage to end or even agree with your spouse’s decision to move forward with a divorce.

Ending a second or third marriage

There are many reasons why a marriage does not work out, from fights over financial matters to disagreements over how to raise a child. Sometimes, people marry someone else after ending their first marriage. Second and even third marriages occur quite often, and these marriages may also lead to a divorce. If you are considering filing for divorce for the second or third time, you may have some familiarity with family law issues and how the divorce process works in general. However, you should remain focused and understand that there may be various unique aspects of this divorce.

Changing your mind about divorce

Making the decision to end a marriage can be particularly hard and there are countless factors that may have to be taken into consideration, such as various ways in which life will change, the financial consequences of divorce and the potential benefits of ending a marriage that is unhealthy. Sometimes, people change their minds with respect to their decision to file for a divorce. There is nothing wrong with having a change of heart, but it is important to make sure that there are not any negative influences (such as a controlling or abusive partner, meddling family members, etc.) who convince you to make a decision that is not in your best interests.

College and the end of marriage

Couples have many different concerns as they work through the process of divorce, such as questions about how their property will be split up or issues involving their children (child support, custody, and so on). Another divorce issue involving children is college, which some families have to work through. If your child is planning on attending college soon, you may need to take this into consideration as you work through divorce. For example, college attendance can impact child support payments, affect a parent financially due to tuition and living expenses and also create stress for children and their parents as well.
