Should You Divorce or Attempt Reconciliation?

Orange County divorce attorneys; The Maggio Law FirmMarital relationships can sometimes last a lifetime, but only if the people that are involved in it are in it with love, commitment and dedication. Yet sometimes, especially in relationships between a husband and a wife, things just don’t work out. There may be a variety of reasons for things not working out which may include a lack of intimacy, misunderstanding, lack of compatibility, etc. Whatever the reason though, when things aren’t working with your spouse, you have only two real options in front of you:  to repair your marriage and reconcile, or otherwise proceed with divorce.

The decision of whether you should go for Orange County divorce or reconcile with your spouse is an important one since it will dictate the kind of future that you will have. But the fact that divorce has a social stigma attached to it means that even if a spouse is not willing to live with the other spouse it is not a decision that they can take willingly.  That however should not be the case. If you are not able to live with your spouse, divorce may seem a viable option.

Reasons to go for Reconciliation

·         Giving it another chance

Anybody can make a mistake. One mistake or even a few mistakes should not spell the end of anything, much less a marriage. If you think that things are not working between the two of you, you can always talk to your spouse and go for a therapy session where both of you can work on your marriage instead of opting for an Orange County divorce.

·         For the children’s welfare

For a child one of the worst possible things to experience in life is to have their parents go through an Orange County divorce and see to their family break apart. This will change the way life has been for them altogether.

Reasons to go for a divorce

·         Start afresh

If you feel that your life is stagnant and any and everything that you try between you and your spouse is not working, you need a fresh start that start will be given to you by an Orange County divorce. Getting a divorce will rid you of your spouse and the shackles of being married. Once you out you can start new and single, doing all things you wanted to do and achieve.

·         For the sake of the children

There is reason in the reconciliation section that is for the children. In most cases an Orange County divorce is also for the best interest of the children. The worst thing for the child to witness and one that can ruin their life forever is witnessing their parents fight out against one another, leveling allegations and displaying open hate. The only way to put a stop on it is to go for a divorce.

·         For safety and security

If you can prove that your spouse is an illegal drug addict or that they abuse you or the children or both mentally, physically and emotionally either or all, you can and should opt for a divorce. No relation is bigger than human life and well being. If you and your children fear for your safety with your spouse, an Orange County divorce is your protection from all such problems.
