The D Word -- Should I File For Divorce?
At the end of most interviews, the overwhelmed soul seated across the desk gazes back through dazed lids and asks "what d'you think I should do?" The answer's rarely straightforward.
There's no formula for an emotional decision. It's surgery with a butter knife.What causes a marriage to break down only complicates the process of breaking up. The traits that set your teeth on edge are only exacerbated when a spouse has no further interest in containing them.
From decades of experience, my best advice is to visualize:Realistically picture what life would be like for you a year, and then five years ahead without your spouse in your daily life. Not so much in a monetary sense, but in a personal and pragmatic sense.
