War of the Worlds: Avoiding the Battlefields of Divorce

Television today often portrays divorce as this dramatic experience which involves a lot of screaming and arguing, often followed by throwing of objects in the home. Divorce is seen as being this terrifying experience in which families are tragically broken, children hurt, and parents leave one another feeling distraught and hopeless. While this may be the sad outcome for some families who are breaking up, your divorce does not have to be war. Believe it or not, many couples who are divorcing can actually do so amicably, and even maintain that peace decades after the split.

Perhaps you have felt hurt and emotionally abused during your marriage, which then led to you wanting to get a divorce. You have the choice to respond harshly and with anger, or you can choose to set aside those feelings and imagine your children years down the road and how much they would love to have their parents equally involved in life, especially with big events like the weddings. While it may not be ways, choosing to make your divorce not a battle is something that will affect the rest of your life with your family, and hopefully keep you closer with your children in the long run. By choosing to look at the big picture rather than the pain you’re currently in, it can save you a lot of heart ache, both for you and your spouse and your family as a whole.
