Whether to file for divorce is one of the hardest decisions you could ever face
Should you get a divorce? There are no easy answers. If you are asking yourself this question, your marriage is probably already in serious trouble. Only you can answer this question. However, here are some thoughts that may help you to decide.
The most important part of this question has to do with why are you thinking about a divorce. There are some serious problems that simply cannot be solved such as physical abuse, child abuse, mental illness, criminal activity, fraud, etc. If you find yourself in one of these situations, there is very little you can do to resolve them especially if your partner is the one who has the problem. For your safety or your child's safety, you may not have a choice but to seek a divorce to get protection from the legal system. But, as difficult as these problems are, the answer to the question of whether to get a divorce is easy - yes!
There are other reasons you may be thinking about a divorce that are not so clear cut but still very serious. For example, drug or alcohol abuse or another addiction could be the issue. Of course, your spouse can seek treatment and if he or she does, this could save your marriage.
