Even Though I Love Him, I Want To Get A Divorce

Not all marriages are meant to last a lifetime.

Alright ladies, we can admit that most of us have dreamed of getting married and living happily ever since we were kids. But it's almost as if once our dream wedding ended, reality pretty much took center stage. Being married isn't as easy as people often make it seem. It doesn't matter how long you've been together; there is always going to be a time where you guys don't see eye to eye and end up getting into an argument because of it. It isn't as pretty as expected. So what happens when you find yourself fantasizing about getting a divorce instead of sticking it out?

When Divorce coach duo Kimberly Mishkin and Liza Caldwell of SAS — Support And Solutions For Women talk about the different steps to take before you decide to get a divorce, we couldn't agree more. Getting a divorce is a really big (not to mention life changing) decision. That's why it's so important to really think things through. Sometimes, talking to your husband about everything that has been bothering you can put you both on the same page. Even if sitting down and getting to the bottom of what's really hurting you doesn't change your mind, it doesn't mean that you're a bad person. At the end of the day, you have to think about your happiness.
