Three local divorce attorneys featured on Glamour.com give great marriage advice on what is important when choosing your partner and how to handle divorce if it happens to you. James Sexton, who has been practicing law for 17 years, reminds us, “You divorce the same person you married.
” It seems obvious, but people often rush to get married and overlook important red flags, showing that the relationship will likely break down in the future. To prevent this from happening to you, here are some important points to consider before entering matrimony.
- Marriage is a lifelong commitment. Many overlook that fact and instead concentrate on what to put on the wedding cake.
- Picking your spouse is important. Make sure that the two of you are compatible because spouses are unlikely to change in the future.
- Differences in how you and your partner handle finances are most likely causes of your relationship ending in a divorce.
- Sometimes, exciting dating partners do not make good marriage partners. Marrying a chef because it’s a cool job may mean spending many days and evenings alone while your partner is at work.
- If you decide to split, make the divorce process as easy as possible. It is not a war between you and your partner.
If you want to start divorce proceedings, consult your local divorce attorneys and keep things as civil as possible for everyone’s sake.
