“I survived Christmas but I really don’t want to be in my marriage any more. What should I do?”

“I survived Christmas but I really don’t want to be in my marriage any more. What should I do?”

Statistics show that divorce rates peak in January as many people will stay together for the Xmas period and then decide to move on in the New Year.

Divorce is never the easy option and my advice is to allocate a set amount of time, usually a couple of months at least, to try everything you can to save your marriage. You may be able to rekindle your relationship and save a lot of heartache and pain for yourself, your partner and your children.

After that set time period you will be clearer and if you decide that it is better for you to move on then at least you will have no regrets and “what if’s?”.

Speak to a Divorce Coach or a family law legal advisor who can educate you on what your Divorce Journey will look like. Being prepared and knowing what to expect will make it easier for you.

Divorce is not an easy journey but there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel and there are many of us here to prove it.
