Is your marriage really at an end?

On Behalf of | Dec 28, 2022 | Divorce

Many people consider divorce at this time of year. Yet how can you tell if it is just the holiday stress you are dealing with or if things really have reached the end?

Here are some ways you can help yourself to decide and then move forward if you are sure:

Think back to other years

Try and remember if you always find the end of year holidays a difficult time as a couple. It can be easy to blot out the bad memories and think that everything is normally great. The holidays are only a week long, so you must be sure your decision is right for the other 51 weeks too.

Wait a week or two

Wait until the holidays are over and things return to normality to make a more accurate assessment without the holiday stressors affecting your decision. You might feel you cannot wait another week, but unless abuse is an issue, a week is nothing in the scheme of things.
