7 Crucial Tips for a Peaceful Divorce ...

COMMENT

The idea of even finding tips for a peaceful divorce might seem impossible, but you can do this.

Divorce is so often acrimonious, known for tearing families apart in more ways than just the dissolution of a marriage.

It's hard on the participants, their children, their family, and even their friends, especially the people they know in common.

You can keep things amiable and even friendly, however.

Just keep in mind that you have to really want to follow these tips for a peaceful divorce.

1. You Have to Want It

If you don't want to keep things civil, even friendly, then the rest of these tips for a peaceful divorce won't work.

You have to want it and you have to be willing to work on it.

If there are issues that keep things from being really peaceful, then you can either do your very best to deal with them or you can go for the cordial approach instead.

You may not be able to stay friendly with your ex afterward, but you can keep the process as peaceful as possible.

27 years!!!! O wow that's a long time, I've been married for 9 years but have been with him since I was 21. I'm heading down that road as well, I think we just grew apart and I haven't been happy in a while. Well I wish you the best.

My ex husband was in the navy who turned out to be an alcoholic, abusive and cheated on me several times. He came home from a deployment and said that he wanted to be single so he could sleep with other women guilt free- I said fine packed up my stuff and moved out the next day. I only took my cat, my clothes and shoes everything else I let him have. I didn't feel like fighting over material things so I didn't even bother trying to get any $ from him. It was hard at first and I had to work my ass off but It was easier and less emotionally tolling. Last I heard he got re married 6 months after our divorce and then got divorced 10 months later. I've been divorced since 2011
