Is divorce right for me?

Many married couples in Kentucky who are experiencing turmoil and conflict in their relationships find themselves ready to call it quits and file for divorce. There may be plenty of reasons why some of those people decide to do so and why some do not. If your marriage is on the rocks, you may find yourself ready to separate from your partner. A careful deliberation of feelings and the situation is necessary to ensure that the decision to divorce is not rushed. If you are not sure if you want to stay married to your spouse, you should take some time to learn if divorce is the right thing for you to do.


Spouses who want to stay together talk and communicate with each other. They are not afraid to discuss their feelings and situations with the other person, even if they lead to conflict and disagreements. Couples who really talk and listen to their partners are more in tune with them and better able to communicate effectively to overcome the challenges they may face. People in marriages where there is little to no communication may benefit from counseling, so they can determine if they are able to overcome their issues.

Interest and intimacy

Some people grow, change and lose interest in their spouses. They may also find themselves emotionally and or physically drawn to other people. Many spouses who decide to file for divorce find it challenging and in some cases impossible to stay in relationships where interest and intimacy are missing.


When both people in a marriage want to split, the relationship is over. There is no need for either party to continue holding onto a person who is no longer interested in staying with them for the long haul.


Happiness is important in a marriage. Couples who have a hard time feeling happy or content about themselves and their lives because of their relationships should ask themselves why. Partners who are unable to overcome their feelings should not stay in unhealthy relationships. Sometimes all it takes is a little time apart from each other to help strengthen the bonds of love, affection and happiness. Other times divorce is the only viable option.

Marriage is hard work. If either person in your union is not willing to work on themselves and your relationship so you are better partners to each other, then divorce may be the next best thing. This is not a decision that you should make while you are highly emotional, irrational or confused. You should think things through carefully. If you are considering divorce or are interested in learning more about your options, you should discuss your situation with an attorney.
