Have you been thinking about getting a divorce? But you are unsure whether it is a good time to file. What are some signs that it is time to file for divorce?
If you have already discussed getting a divorce with your spouse, then it is time to go ahead and file. Postponing the process places additional pressure on an already unhappy situation. Sometimes people don’t want to be the person to file because they believe it makes them the bad guy, who broke up the marriage and called it quits. But starting the process makes you one step closer to resolving everything.
If you have been cheating on your spouse, whether physically or emotionally, it is time to file. The longer you allow the situation to continue, the harder it will be once the facts reveal themselves. You may believe that your spouse will never find out about your cheating, but you are probably wrong. Even if you don’t tell, somebody else might. And, when your spouse finds out that you have been cheating and lying, then your credibility on all other issues becomes questionable. Resolving even simple financial issues becomes harder. And your character as a parent becomes questionable too.
If your spouse has been cheating on you, whether physically or emotionally, it is time to file. When this fact is revealed, the cheating spouse usually feels guilty. This is a good time to file and take advantage of their guilt in order to negotiate a good deal. The longer the process takes, their guilt begins to wear off and so does their generosity. Remember you are dealing with a selfish liar, so don’t trust them to do the right thing by you or the children. Take care of yourself and move on.
If you and your spouse constantly fight, over big and little things, it is time to file. Fighting has become how you and your spouse communicate. This isn’t good for your health, your spouse’s health, or your children’s health. It is time to make healthy changes in your life for the sake of your whole family.
If you are lonely and unhappily married, no matter the reason, it is time to file. The divorce process can be stressful, but staying in a bad marriage can be worse. Most likely, if you are unhappy, then your spouse is too. By taking the next step, you will both have the chance to find the happiness you both deserve.
