Couples who have a conflicted relationship often think about the options open to them to determine if they are truly meant for each other and if they can ride the waves of factors that come between being happy together for life.  Some couples will consider psychotherapy or mediation.  However, when they experience these as not helpful and they gain further insight into the irreconcilable differences they have arrived at they, or one of them, will consider a divorce. 

Divorce becomes a theme within the couple’s lives.  The tension increases and their unhappiness results in a state of conflict as they display a host of emotions stemming from guilt and blame to resentment and anger.  Couples often find themselves greatly overwhelmed and unable to focus on other things in their lives as they can obsess about finding a solution to the inevitable problems. 

As divorce becomes a viable solution the couple begins to reach out to family and friends to get feedback and/or sympathy on their quest for vindication.  The oftentimes-stormy sequence of events takes flight.  The couples begin the task of talking to attorney’s to get a better idea of the series of steps they need to take to obtain a divorce without suffering its devastating effects. If they have assets they begin to consider how these can be shared-or not. If they have children the issues of custody, visitation and parenting takes a toll on their ability to be reasonable and impartial. 

Yet some couples will determine that they will take a peaceful approach to ending their conflicted marriage.  This approach is through a series of amicable conversations whereby they reach a consensus regarding the distribution of assets and debts, child custody and child support, etc. They find that this can be less expensive, more peaceful and a faster way of navigating a path to a much healthier lifestyle.
