Don't fear divorce; it could mean the marriage did its job

Some people may reflect on the end of a marriage as a personal failure. However, experts challenge people to reframe the concept of marriage and divorce. A marriage that ends in divorce may be considered successful if it has helped both parties grow as individuals. When an individual in Illinois contemplates divorce, he or she can feel that the move is a success and may then be able to focus on the strategies of effectively closing out a marriage.

Some couples therapists share the opinion that marriage is designed to help people grow, and that the result of that growth for some individuals is that they grow out of the marriage. There are a myriad of reasons why a person would choose to move on rather than spend time working on repairing the relationship. He or she just may not have the time, energy or mental bandwidth to go on with the same person, and another approach may be a better fit.

When individuals are able to embrace change, they may be surprised to find an even better outcome than before. A divorce can represent the fact that an individual had the self-awareness to step out of a situation that was not working, or was able to take steps to relieve suffering. The marriage may have even uncovered parts of the personality that the person was not aware of before entering the marriage.

In Illinois, individuals enter into the divorce process every day. The experts seem to agree that people should not consider themselves a failure in having gotten to this point. With a fresh perspective in mind, the individual can then focus on the business of divorce - settling property division, support payments and custody. For this aspect of ending a marriage, some individuals choose the help of an experienced family law attorney.
