Divorce Counseling Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the divorce process get more and more stressful and depressing?
One must look at the word divorce, and act accordingly with respect to its literal meaning. Each spouse must realize that it is his or her responsibility to bury the hostility. A mature spouse is able to recognize this and move forward in his or her life, even though this is never an easy achievement.

Why is the divorce process so long?
Actually, it does not have to be very long at all. The time it takes from separation to settlement depends on the actions of the spouses. Divorce is not a game, but if one plays it as though it were, one should prepare to go the extra rounds.

Why do some spouses treat the divorce process like a game?
This usually occurs when one spouse is not in favor of the divorce or the impending outcome of such. It is an act of postponement and usually provokes the other spouse into playing games as well. A mature spouse will recognize this and keep very much to themselves.

What fears does the typical female possess?
Women are worried about securing custody and maintaining financial stability. Financial stability will lead to a higher self-esteem, which can make the healing process much faster and easier.

What fears does the typical male possess?
Men are primarily worried about losing assets, which can decrease their self- esteem, and thus make the healing process slower and more difficult.
