Why Do Divorce Cases Go Bad?

If you’re reading this, you’re probably deciding or going through a divorce. Or at least you know someone who has. Divorce is a major decision; it may be yours, your spouse, or both of you. Regardless of who made the decision, divorce involves a lot of important choices that you need to make. But why do divorce cases go bad?

What choices, you may ask? Basically, it relates to the process and the overall manner of the matter. Will it be smooth sailing or a messy one? Will it involve intense litigation or a cooperative process?

One of the things that make the divorce process bitter and angry is when one of the spouses will use it to vindicate past misdeeds. The process may also tend to become more adversarial if children and properties are involved.

Will it be a good divorce or a bad one?

The choice lies in you and your spouse. Yes, divorce may cause a lot of bad emotions, and it can be difficult to keep it under control. But if you and your spouse try to do so, both of you may just be able to secure a decision to your mutual benefit.

As painful and difficult as the process may be, thinking of the end goal is important. Divorce can help you and your spouse get a new start in life. It can give you another shot at having a successful relationship in the future. However, it is up to you and your spouse whether to make use of this opportunity or demolish it.

Ultimately, how you come out of the divorce is within your and your spouse’s control. Both of you can squander your economic and emotional resources or you can agree to come and meet halfway and resolve the issues. And the benefit does not just stop at you and your spouse; your children do too. Before you turn yourselves into emotional cripples, work together and come to an agreement. Settle your divorce amicably with your spouse.

Make these choices civilly.

Until the court gives its divorce decree, you and your spouse are still a married couple. If both of you are keen on severing that legal tie, keep your eye on the goal. Just because there is distrust, anger, and sadness does not mean you should let it control you.

As you and your spouse are about to commence (or are already commencing) the task of cutting off your marital ties, fight together and not against each other. Aim to negotiate a decent end of your relationship.

If you choose to engage in war, it can be difficult for your spouse not to counter. Only a few spouses in divorce would be willing to turn the other cheek. And it can also be easy to offend each other during this time.

Seemingly it can be far-fetched to correlate health and divorce. But while it is seen as a bad thing, divorce is desirable to some degree. It helps you and your spouse achieve a legitimate goal. Not just for you both but for your children as well. So why do divorce cases go bad? It’s ultimately up to you and your spouse.
