Therapists claim divorce does not mean one failed in a marriage

The pervasive school of thought concerning marriage is that if it ends in a dissolution, then one or both spouses may have failed to put in enough effort to make it work. However, many therapists are debunking that thought by suggesting that a divorce may indicate that the parties were successful. California residents may benefit from examining the reasons behind this current belief.

Spouses who enter into a marriage likely assume that they are entering into a life-long commitment. Instead, many therapists are suggesting that a relationship is intended to help the parties to grow and change as individuals. Many people may resist changing, but professional counselors believe that the realization that one has changed and that a relationship is no longer fulfilling is similar to changing careers or employment.

According to marriage counselors, couples often wait for an average of six years before deciding to seek outside help when they are experiencing marital difficulties. In many cases, the issues that are causing the conflict may have become so systemic that the couple does not have the energy or desire to resolve the difficulties. In these situations, it may be the better option to file for a divorce rather than to remain in a suffocating relationship.

Many who have chosen to file for a divorce stated that the decision to do so was preferable over the prospect of remaining in a dead-end marriage. Though many couples may believe that growing as individuals is detrimental to a relationship, the decision to seek happiness and fulfillment may often be a better choice. California residents who are considering taking this step to pursue personal freedom may benefit from seeking the guidance of an experienced family attorney who can help them obtain the settlement agreement that will best serve their future needs.
