There are moments when you look at your partner and think, "I'm going to file for divorce." Sometimes you don't mean it, but sometimes you do. How do you know you've had enough and want to end the marriage, though?
Decide after doing these activities together:
Attending a Family Outing
Before you contact a divorce lawyer, consider how your spouse is at family gatherings. If there is no conflict between your spouse and your family, and the same is true for your family and your partner's, you may want to mediate the divorce instead of taking it to court. A no-fault divorce can help everyone adjust to the new arrangements and separation, and the kids will not be stuck in the middle of an ugly fight between parents.
Planning a Night Out
Sometimes all it takes is some time alone to finalize your decision to divorce your spouse. Take the time to think about where you two stand. Denver is among the top 10 cities in the U.S. when it comes to recreation, so you will not have a shortage of things to do. Do you still enjoy the same things and have the same vision for the family? Do you find that you have grown distant? If you don't enjoy the time with your spouse as much as you used to, it's probably time to call it quits.
Having a Regular Night in
Your marriage should not just be happy when you two are out having fun and forgetting about your responsibilities to the family. You should feel comfortable in the house with your spouse even on regular nights. Think about your family routine and how much of it involves talking to your spouse. Do you make decisions together? Is there a noticeable distance between the two of you? Can you make all the family decisions on your own?
There is a finality that comes with divorce. Make sure you are ready for it and that it's the best decision for the family. Once you've decided, seek legal advice as soon as possible.
