This article caught my attention as it gave one man’s experience of divorcing.
The author concluded by saying “
If you really think divorce is the only answer, don’t lie, cheat or ruin your spouse. This will destroy any trust between you and her during the divorce. Divorce proceedings that lack trust will ruin your life. It will cost tens of thousands of dollars (or hundreds of thousands); you’ll lawyer up and find yourself in court. Be honest, come clean, give and see it from their side and you might make it without sinking the ship.”
It can be very difficult at a very emotional time to sort matters out face to face. However, whilst divorce lawyers can be very useful it is easy to hand over control of your family’s future and in the process spend lots of money better used for family purposes. This is a good example of when it helps to use family mediation.
