Many young adults feel positive about the possibilities that their future holds and with their whole life ahead of them, who can blame them. They are full of energy, want to experience different things and just have fun. Many may also have a life plan, i.e. get good qualifications, start a career and perhaps settle down in future with the right person and eventually have children. The number of marriages has dropped in the last few decades but it’s something that everyone considers at some point in their lives. However, for those who get married and their relationship starts to break down, they also find it hard to get their life back on track.
For those who have been married for a number of years, you may find that you have forgotten what it’s like to be a single person again. Married couples plan routines around each other and do things as a couple. To find yourself having to think for yourself once again and plan what you want to do can be a little daunting but also an exciting prospect. As a newly single person, you could start to live your life the way you’ve always wanted to. This could include socialising more with friends or pursuing new adventures or sports.
What makes you happy
At the time that you realise you are in an unhappy marriage, consider what would make you happy and discuss it openly with your partner. Many couples outgrow each other. They develop different interests and so it becomes clear that you don’t enjoy your time together. It’s obviously a sad feeling to realise that your marriage is irretrievably breaking down. You have both got to find the positive in your situation. If you can both agree that divorce is the best option, then think about it as your first step to getting your life back on track.
Leading up to Divorce
The road leading up to a divorce can be rocky but it’s important for you both to realise when a marriage should come to an end so that you can both go your separate ways. Divorced people often refer the moment to a crossroads in their life, when it’s time to pursue a different path that will increase their happiness and work out better for all at the end of the day. Working things out in an amicable way also helps to relieve the tension and sail through the divorce process.
