When it’s time to get divorced

If you are considering divorce, consider some of points below when thinking about your situation. If you are ready to get started with a divorce, you can contact me here.

You can’t do anything right

If you feel you are never right in your marriage, it doesn’t really matter if you are right or wrong. The situation is unsustainable.

Sex is virtually totally unappealing

Some people think divorce is wrong, because of religious reasons. Others stay together for the kids. But if sex is totally unappealing to you, you might get sick of living as roommates. If that’s the case, divorce might be an option to explore.

Love has been replaced by resentment

Feelings of resentment come from being hurt by your spouse.  There is nothing wrong with feeling hurt by the actions of another. A marriage dies when spouses harbor hurt feelings and do nothing about them – that’s when resentment builds. From resentment grows bitterness and hostility, feelings hard to work through and more than likely mean the end of a marriage.

Moving on

As a family law attorney in Illinois, I can help you strategize regarding telling your spouse that you want a divorce.  Or if you and your spouse have already agreed you need a divorce, I can help guide you through the process of an uncontested divorce in Illinois.
