Divorce: Be sure before you close that door

Life is full of decisions, some more important than others. For many New Jersey residents, marriage changes their lives for the better and remains that way until death parts them. Other people are not so lucky, and may instead notice a number of things over time that might point to the need to consider whether securing a divorce is the best way forward.

While it used to be the case that mothers predominantly took care of the children, these days it is common for fathers to be more involved in their children's upbringing. Many families cannot afford to get by on a single income, with the result that both parents often work outside of the home. In such circumstances, a mother or father who is also expected to do the majority of housework and child rearing can feel taken for granted. Over time, this resentment can build up to an overwhelming level.

Selfishness may not only manifest as a lack of help around the house. One spouse may control the finances, pinching every penny until it squeaks and questioning every purchase the other spouse makes. Showing a lack of respect, withdrawing emotionally and physically or having an affair may all be indicators that one person has lost commitment to the marriage, or has simply given up.

If all attempts to reconcile have fallen short, then divorce may be the only option left to consider for unhappily married New Jersey residents. It is not a decision to be taken lightly, but once made it is important to seek advice appropriate to one's circumstances. This will help one to move forward in the most positive manner possible.
