Divorce more likely for some couples

There are many ways that couples in Florida realize it is time to go their separate ways. Whether they are experiencing infidelity or addiction or have grown apart over time, the end of a marriage may be the best way for people to move forward from an unhappy relationship. Of course, divorce is not only a major emotional milestone; it is also a serious financial and legal issue. People do not decide to divorce lightly; they base their decision on serious thoughts for the future. There are several common issues that many couples experience before they decide that divorce is the right decision for them.

For example, when couples stop spending time together, this can reflect an underlying problem in the marriage. Some experts note that couples who no longer eat dinner together are more likely to divorce. On the surface, this might reflect something as simple as changing work schedules. However, in practice, it can highlight a more fundamental disconnect in the marriage. Similarly, couples who stop dating each other or abandon fun shared hobbies may find themselves with little in common. Instead, they may only connect around mundane issues and live a roommate-like lifestyle. Unhappy couples may find themselves staying late at work and otherwise avoiding returning home to spend time with a spouse.

Many people hope that children will bring their marriage closer together. However, couples that find themselves staying together only for the kids may foster even more resentment. Some adult children report their parents fighting excessively and wish that they had divorced earlier rather than later.

Divorce may be a good choice for people with real irreconcilable differences, but it also carries major financial implications. A family law attorney may help divorcing spouses to reach a fair settlement on a range of issues, from spousal support to property division.
