Every year, thousands of Americans elect to pursue a divorce. For many, a divorce can represent a new opportunity for love and life. An individual or couple can reach the decision to separate for a number of reasons. Below we will explore some of the most common reasons for divorce. If you are considering a divorce, it is critical you speak with an experienced legal team that can help you navigate the divorce process. 

Top Reasons for Divorce

Divorce rates vary according to state and city. With a 21 ½ percent divorced adult population, East Alton near St. Louis is the divorce capital of Illinois. A recent study published in Couple Family Psychology looked at why most American couples pursue a divorce.

Divorce is difficult at any time of the year, but it can feel especially overwhelming during the holiday season. You may find yourself feeling lonely, or missing certain traditions, or even yearning for time with your in-laws. Take heart: these painful feelings are completely normal, and they will eventually pass. In the meantime, the following can help you cope with your divorce during this holiday season.

Dealing with Family and Friends

Family and the holidays tend to go hand in hand, but it can be an added stressor when you are going through a divorce. This is especially true when you have family members who give unsolicited advice or do not seem to understand what you are going through. It is important to remember that, though they mean well, you do not have to share every detail about your life, or the divorce. Try letting them know that you would really rather not discuss the divorce during family gatherings, or take a close friend who can act as a buffer if things get too out of hand. If all else fails, consider turning down invites to events that you know might be triggering and spend time at home, taking care of yourself instead.
