Rushing your divorce
If you don't listen to any other advice, heed this: Do not rush the divorce! Pay attention to important details and read, read, read, read before you sign any legal documents. If you think you're not emotionally ready for a divorce, try a trial separation, says Brooke. Separation allows you to see if your restlessness is more a desire for personal growth and the need for self-expression versus your marriage's failure. The time away allows you to make distinctions to see what life is like without your spouse. "It will give you more clarity or it will be the fork in the road," Brooke explains.
