Divorce offers multiple benefits, reasons to feel grateful

Going through a marital split-up can understandably cause distress, so thinking of reasons to be thankful may not come easy. Still, counting one's blessings may help to take some of the sting out of the divorce process. Several reasons exist for being thankful while going through divorce in California.

First, finding out one's true support system as a result of divorce is invaluable. Many spouses who have suffered emotional or physical abuse during their marriages have often experienced isolation from their friends and loved ones due to their abusers. Going through the divorce process may enable the abused to reconnect with these individuals and gain strength during the split-up.

Another benefit of going through divorce is that it inspires spouses to learn new skills. For instance, a newly divorced mother may be motivated to figure out how to do plumbing without her former spouse's help, and likewise, a newly divorced father may embrace learning how to cook and do other household activities that his former spouse perhaps mostly did. Doing things for oneself after divorce can feel empowering and set a positive example for the children long term.

Even though divorce in California is hardly a pleasant experience, it does offer a few positive aspects. One way in which to make the divorce process even more of a positive experience is to seek to resolve disputes through divorce negotiation or mediation, which can be less hostile than traditional divorce litigation. Through these processes, spouses can work toward achieving a mutually satisfactory divorce settlement without further court intrusion.
