The Fear of Divorce

If you've never been through a divorce, you can't imagine the pain and heartache it causes, unless you were so happy to get out of a marriage that it felt good. Otherwise, divorce is a heart wrenching experience that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride, especially after you've made such a long term commitment.

What you have to go through in terms of emotional stress is devastating enough, but add to that the fear of losing friends and family, security, a second income, the trauma of being forced to sell a home and/or other assets, and maybe having to file for bankruptcy, you will understand that divorce is more than a notion.

You may have to deal with a lot of issues such as intimidation tactics by the other spouse, finding the right attorney, having to deal with others who are involved, fighting for child support, alimony, and other issues that may or may not come into play.

Unless you've been through a divorce before, or was close to someone who has, you need to know that they can be tough and down right messy. During divorce proceedings, especially if they are long and drawn out, many things can be said and done that may cause you to seek anger management.

Even those who have been through divorce on one or more occasions still find the process scary. Above all, fear of the unknown makes divorce one of the most traumatic events imaginable and it can take a toll on your health and well being.

At times, divorce can trigger drug abuse, alcoholism, suicide, and even murder. With all the paperwork, finding the right attorney, court appearances, it causes sleepless nights, frustration, anger, depression, desperation, along with the fear.

This may seem harsh, but it's true. Divorce is scary, but it's not the end of the world.

How you act and react during divorce proceedings has a lot to do with how well you come out of it. Talking about it helps relieve frustration and anger. Lean on family and friends for support and above all, take a look at yourself. You may help your cause by not lashing out at your spouse.

There are different types of divorces and it may be beneficial to you in the long run to seek a quick and equitable ending. If you are using an attorney, which is highly recommended, ask him about a "No Fault Divorce" or if you've been married for under 5 years, a " Summary Divorce."

Although divorcing your spouse may cause headache and hardship, you can rebound from it and come out stronger when all is said and done.
