Knowing your reality: Questioning if divorce is the right choice

As someone who is considering a divorce, it is important to know if it's the right choice for your situation. Divorce isn't for everyone, and many people's marriages do survive difficulties during their lives. It's wise to think very carefully about your reason for seeking a divorce.

It's impossible to say if a divorce is the right decision for you without knowing all the facts and how you feel. There are a few questions you can ask to help yourself decide, though.

1. Am I willing to work through the challenges ahead?

If your marriage is strained, then the challenges you're facing aren't going to go away magically. You may need to work through them using mediation or marital counseling. Are you willing to do that work, or would you rather walk away? Deciding if your marriage is worth saving is an important step toward deciding if a divorce is the right choice for you.

2. Are your finances in order?

Another thing to ask is if your finances can handle the hit that a divorce will deliver. Divorces aren't cheap, and there's a high probability that you'll spend hundreds, if not thousands, throughout the process. Knowing your assets and where to find them can help your attorney help you during a divorce.

3. Are you prepared to go without your spouse?

Most importantly, decide if you can go without your spouse. Once you deliver the news that you want a divorce, there's most likely no going back. Be certain that this is what you want before you say anything.
