There are a ton of unhappily married couples but seldom do you hear someone say, “Hey, I might give divorce a try. What’s it like? Can you tell me a little more about it? Do you think I could handle it?”
Nah! That just doesn’t happen.
Divorce is more frightening to the average individual than remaining in an unhappy marriage!
No matter it’s for the rest of your life!
Wow! Think about that – It’s a lot to process.
No one wants to jump off a cliff they have seen others pushed and nose-dive from.
Instead, the ‘unhappy’s’ party on the marital cliff with you and stay far enough back they can witness the divorce demise but not so close they may accidently fall off the cliff themselves.
Worse, a lot of the ‘unhappy’s’ have a somewhat irrational fear divorce could and may be contagious.
Hence, divorce remains a dirty little secret. Even to those who ultimately succumb to it. Making critical survival information fairly scarce. But boy do you ever need a plan! The wicked wilderness of divorce will eat you alive and the scary animal screams will keep you up all night long.
So whatever you do, don’t just go out and naively hire an attorney. Have an “I better be massively prepared, this is a super big cliff, my parachute might not hold me, God please help me kind of plan!”
A few things to do before you party too close to the cliff.
