The decision to end a marriage is not an easy one and one that is seldom made lightly in Florida. The hurt and anger that so often follow the decision to divorce can be a challenge to deal with particularly when young children are involved. There are steps that can be taken to make the process easier on everyone.
First, one should make sure that there really is no other option. Couples have disagreements and fights. Make sure that a divorce isn't a permanent solution to a temporary problem that time and cooler heads might be able to resolve. If one is past the point of no return and the decision is irrevocable, try to maintain respect for the other person. If young children are involved, they may pick up on feelings of animosity that can add to their hurt and confusion.
