by Ellena Reid

Where has all that love gone? What are the things that are tearing you apart? Why your marriage is on the verge of coming to an end? Is divorce the final word to end your relationship? It can be a really devastating situation. However, there are few things that you should take into consideration before you make up your mind to end your marriage. It not only turns your life upside down, but also has a great impact, especially if you have children. Taking the decision of divorce is definitely not easy. The experience of going through it can be really very painful. It is bound to leave some scars not only your relationship, but also on your children for the entire life. Therefore, do not only think twice, think as many times as you can before you take the final decision.

Divorce can be an emotionally traumatic and chaotic situation for you. In this situation the most important thing is that how much aware and alert you are about your financial situation. When you are separating legally, your assets too will be divided. If someone has spent more money, or is handling the financial part for a long time, it can pose a problem for the spouse. You should be ready to face situations which can sometimes turn out nasty, especially when you are fighting out for the right to marital assets. Therefore, a more deep and serious thinking is absolutely essential in this area.

Moreover, this process of divorce is really time consuming. Its not like if you decide to divorce today, tomorrow it will be done for you. Though physically you may separate out, the marital status is still on hold. There are a lot of questions that you will need to tackle like payment of bills, managing your work schedules, taking care of your children, where the children would be sent in temporoary custody, etc. All such things can cause tremendous pressure on you, both physically and mentally.

Taking this decision can be more difficult, in case you have kids. It is not only the question of you getting separated, but also you are putting your kid's life at stake too. Think about who is going to take care of them on a daily basis, what will happen if they fall sick, who will function as a primary caregiver, how shall they spend their holiday time, and a lot of other issues. The last but definitely not the least, is the thing what the children feel about this whole thing called divorce, do they understand it and do they have anger in their mind about it, etc. You will need to face the challenge of answering every hard question put forth by your child.

The emotional anguish and strain that you are experiencing while going through a painful relationship can be extremely difficult to handle. You must think seriously about the consequences of divorce and the impact that it will have on the life of kids as well as your own life. It is time to think from a practical point of view and do not let your future clouded by the emotional trauma you are going through. Think from every perspective before making this life changing decision. Give enough time and make sure your thoughts and priorities are well organized before you take this drastic legal step of divorce.
