Only slightly less common than marriage itself, divorce provides the means to put your life back in order and move forward — alone. But what if your spouse does not share your view?
Popping the question is much easier than ending the marriage that results. In many cases, the feeling is mutual, and both parties understand that the magic is gone and that divorce is mutually acceptable. For other couples, the desire to exit a marriage is unilateral.
I am not talking about the rupture to a marriage caused by the discovery of an affair, but of a time when you view your relationship as over and your spouse does not. Consider these steps if you find yourself concerned about how and when to approach your spouse about divorce:
Be respectful. You do not need the permission of your spouse to divorce, but mutual agreement goes a long way toward keeping your divorce civil — especially if you have children.
