If you're moving toward divorce, you're probably spending a good amount of time arguing with your spouse. The way you handle these conversations will have a lot to say about what happens next.
Here are some arguments that typically come into play before divorce:
- You don't care about me any longer. It can be difficult to fight back against this argument from your spouse.
- You're not getting anything if we divorce. Your spouse may threaten that you won't receive anything in the divorce. This is a scare tactic that shouldn't stop you from proceeding if it's the right decision.
- You'll never get to see the kids again. Just the same as arguments surrounding property division, this can be a nasty fight that takes many twists and turns. If this comes to the forefront, you can expect fights about child custody and support in the divorce.
- You don't want to make things work. Maybe this is true, and maybe this is false. The best thing you can do is be open and honest about your feelings and what you want to happen in the future.
While these arguments are common, many others could get in the way as you move closer to divorce.
The best thing that you can do if your spouse starts any of these arguments is to keep your cool, act like an adult and do whatever you can to better your situation.
