Surviving Divorce

Divorce Sucks.. Sucks.. Sucks…. Divorce is not a favorite topic for me, it is an ugly word and a word we never talked about in my parents house when I was a kid. I never even knew anyone personally before I got married that went through a divorce. Now I know many people with divorces or as we say on the golf course “D’s” and it keeps growing by the day.

I will go on record I am against Divorce unless it is a safety issue for them or their kids. Most Divorces seem to happen over one spouse cheating or money issues.

WebMD said 2 out of 5 of first marriages will end in divorce after one spouse cheats. WF Lawyers said that almost 50% of marriages will end in divorce or separation when I was searching about money issues. From my time helping people with debt problems it sure seems like over 80% of those divorced said Money was the top reason for the divorce or one of the top reasons. Some references are listed below in the show notes if you like stats.

I think people who may be on the fence about getting a Divorce may want to go see a counselor or pastor at church. Another good option would be seeing a marriage counselor or buying a set of Gary Smalley Relationship tapes. That is if your spouse will attend. My past ex went one time and then said it was just me that needed help. We had so much debt that even after selling our house we still had debt to divide up.

Some more things to think about is from an article in Time Magazine. It had some stats like:

  1. Average      first marriage 8 years
  2. Average      second marriage is 6 years. I have heard that divorce rate is higher on 2nd     marriages and even higher on 3rd marriages.
  3. Overall      showed kids are more likely to be harmed by their parents getting divorced
  4. Average      total household wealth of those ages 51 to 61 for married couples as      $132,200. Those Divorced was $33,700 and Widowed was $42,300. It is      cheaper to live in one household than two for sure.

Judith Wallersteom on a book she wrote a book called “The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce” Said “Children from broken families tend to marry later, yet divorce more often than those from intact homes. Listen for more info.
