This is how divorce could save your relationship:
During a divorce, and the months and sometimes years leading up to it, tensions and emotions often run high. Without a doubt, this can create a substantial strain on your relationship. This often leaves spouses asking the question “would we have a better relationship and be happier if we just got a divorce?” First, the answer to this question is going to depend on each individuals particular circumstances. One couple may answer the question with an emphatic yes, while the next couple may answer the questions with a just as resolute no. However, this is still a productive question to ask because it will require you to undergo the necessary self-reflection and evaluation to reach your answer.
If the answer to the question is yes, then how will a divorce save your relationship? Obviously the divorce will end your marriage relationship; however if your divorce is conducted in a mature and responsible manner, it can lay the groundwork for a new relationship based on mutual respect and understanding. The ability to move past your divorce, and maintain a happy and healthy relationship with your ex, is particularly important in situations where the parties will still be raising children together. If you are able to successfully move through your divorce in an amicable and cooperative manner, you can develop a new, and hopefully long lasting, relationship that will benefit not only you but also your friends, family, and children.
The key to transitioning to a new and improved relationship will depend largely on the ability of both you and your spouse to realize that your relationship will likely benefit from a divorce. Often times it is quite difficult for both spouses to reach this realization and then move forward with a cooperative and amicable divorce. However, if you are able to accomplish this, it can have a profound impact on establishing a productive, happy, and long-lasting relationship for years to come.
