Amicable Divorce: How To Make It Possible
You might think that an amicable divorce is impossible, and anybody who claims they had one is an enigma. The truth is, you can make amicable divorce possible. However, it may take a lot of work on your part. Here’s how to make it possible:
Understand The Repercussions of Blindsiding Your Spouse
If you’re blindsiding your spouse, you really need to understand the repercussions of doing so. You may have had a long time to mull this over and settle into the idea of not being with them anymore, so it may not be as difficult for you. You might be more than ready to start your new life as a singleton. However, your spouse won’t find it as easy. In many cases, they might think everything is just fine. When you blindside your spouse, you need to be prepared for a range of emotions to be thrown at you. You need to be prepared for insults and attempted arguments. It won’t be easy, but if it’s what you really want then you need to go through with it.
Prepare To Take Things Slow
Make sure you are prepared to take things slowly. Your spouse is likely already in shock. You’ll need to be prepared to have long, drawn out talks with them over what to do about the kids, your assets, etc. However, avoid these conversations at all costs at first. Your partner will likely be too emotionally charged and will make unreasonable requests.
Be Firm But Understanding
Although you need to be firm with your spouse if this is definitely what you want, you also need to understand what they are going through. Listen to them. Don’t accuse them. You’re not looking to get into an argument or figure out whose fault it all is. This is your final decision, and you don’t need to get into it. Simply listen to them and try to understand them, but make it clear you won’t be changing your mind.
Don’t Bite Back
As tempting as it might be to bite back when they insult you or say something provocative, don’t. They likely don’t mean anything they are saying right now, and just need some time to calm down. The more you can resist the urge to bite back and just take what they have to throw at you, the more chance you have of an amicable divorce. Remember the end result you want and stay strong.
Contact A Professional To Guide You
You may want to contact a professional to guide you if you’re struggling with this. Divorce mediators are good choices if your spouse refuses to speak to you or is being difficult in any way. Make sure you research the best in your area so everything goes as smoothly as it possibly can.
Remember to take the lead when it comes to your amicable divorce. Your partner may or may not do the things mentioned in this guide. Either way, make sure you act how you would like them to act, and it might not take them long to accept your decision.
