Attorney Matthew R. Arnold answering the question: “Does adultery affect who gets custody?”
In our continuing saga of posts based on the Yahoo piece by Ronnie Tyler about seven important reasons to end a bad relationship, we have now reached the fourth piece of advice. The first reason Tyler offered up to consider getting out of a bad marriage is because you deserve better. The second is that your children deserve better. Three was because your spouse won’t change (at least not in the time that you want them to). Number four was because someone has to take the first step and now, number five: because your environment should not define your state of mind.
Tyler says that it is important in the midst of relationship problems to not let your issues consume your entire way of thinking. Sure, things might be bad at home, but that does not mean you have to adopt a negative outlook on life. Also, just because there are problems does not mean the problems cannot be overcome through hard work and honest communication.
Too many people fall into a trap of thinking that the problems experienced by themselves or their spouses are larger than they actually are. Take a step back, try and maintain some perspective on your relationship issues. You are not the first couple to experience problems and you won’t be the last. Realize that you have options and are not stuck in a bad situation for the rest of your life.
If you are truly unhappy, you can always get out of your relationship by deciding to divorce. However, that’s an extreme response and not your only choice. You can also approach mental health professionals, religious leaders and marriage counselors to help try and craft some solutions that are able to save your marriage. Work to avoid the feeling of hopelessness that can drag already unhappy couples further into a state of despair and remember that you are ultimately responsible for your life and your happiness.
If you find yourself facing a complicated family matter then you need the help of experienced family law attorneys in Charlotte, North Carolina who can help guide you through the often confusing process of divorce.
