It’s inevitable. It’s been coming for months. It’s unavoidable. There’s no other way. And now you’re ready. Ready for him to be out of the house. Ready to have some peace in your life. Ready to not have the emotional roller coaster of negative energy in your space.
So, can you kick him out of the house? And then change the locks on the doors so he can’t get back in?
The words “divorce” and “thrive” are not often used in the same sentence. Many would say that’s the definition of oxymoron. Usually it’s more like “divorce” and “survive” or “divorce” and “trauma”, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Many millions survive divorce. Others actually thrive. As a divorce attorney who practiced law for nearly two decades, I saw the gamut. Those who could never move on. Addicted to the litigation. And those who quickly grasped that hanging on meant you’re the one drinking the poison. So, from the view in the trenches, here are 5 ways to not only survive divorce, but to actually thrive.
Divorce. The “D” Word.
For most though, it feels more like it should be an “F” word. F for Fear. F for Fury. F for Fragmented. F for Failure. But does it have to mean those things? The answer is a resounding no.
The D Word can mean Direction, Dream, Daring. Easier said than however. Divorce is consistently listed as one of the most traumatic events that one could ever possibly experience and yet, it is experienced by at least half of married couples. Yet, until recently there has not been any sort of lay person guidance to get through divorce. People dealing with divorce would have to be paying per the minute for billable hours to get the attention of attorneys or therapists. And even for those who could afford such services, most people still feel like they are in groping the hallways in a scary, haunted house to get through their divorce.
Divorce can be stressful enough. Trying to figure out who gets what can make it even more stressful. And thinking about dividing an asset that isn’t readily divisible can sometimes scare people into staying in bad marriages, or maybe crawl into a cave somewhere.
While divorce is never fun, the good news is that if you and/or your spouse own your own business, you can still get divorced and the process does not have to be nearly as painful as you might think.
