In a society where about 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce, we can see many different cases of divorce, both bad and good. How can a divorce be seen as good? There are various ways to carry out the decision to end a marriage, and while some people choose to end the marriage viciously, making every step of the process as difficult to the other partner as possible, there are those wise people who choose to end the marriage civilly.
First of all, don’t be vindictive. We know that you wouldn’t end your marriage if you still loved your partner. However, do not try to take revenge on your partner when you are in the middle of getting a divorce. Judges will frown upon vindictive behavior. Secondly, don’t use your children as messengers. Keep communications with your ex-partner open without involving your children. If talking on the phone is bound to bring up negative emotions, communicate through email. Lastly, protect your children. Negative emotions towards your ex-partner shouldn’t be passed onto your children. Your ex-partner may seem like your enemy, but to your children, he/she is still a loving parent.
