What you need to know:

  • If all conflict resolution attempts such as marital therapy have failed, it's time to accept that your union cannot continue to exist and focus on planning a civil separation and divorce.
  • Kids should not be separated from family members of either side. Help them to maintain contact with family members on both sides because they need to grow within a village of love.

Unlike breaking up an ordinary relationship, a divorce not only breaks up love, promises and hopes, it also breaks families apart. The divorce process can be dirty and emotionally, physically, and financially draining. But there are ways you can navigate the process without washing your family’s dirty linen in public.
