Why do most people get divorced?” Sometimes one spouse is indeed a bad person, but more often, it is a variation of ‘the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.’

People seeking a divorce have often tried many different things to fix their marriage or find fulfillment within it. Their last resort is usually divorce. They seek a divorce because they genuinely believe that things cannot be worse after a divorce than they were before.

While this is true for some divorces, it’s not always the way the story turns out. After dividing the assets, both people may have fewer assets than they had imagined. The better partner they imagined finding may not materialize.

Divorce is difficult, and once you scale that fence, it will probably not be possible to go back to the way things were before. Consider carefully:

  1. Would I be happier alone than I am with this person?
  2. Have I tried everything to save this marriage?
  3. Is the marriage beyond repair?

If the answer these questions is “yes,” then let us assure you: the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence.
