6 of the Hardest Moments During Divorce, According to Women Who Have Experienced It

It can be hard. It can be ugly.

Divorce is never a good thing (in the moment), but it happens.

Of course, divorce can always end up being a good thing when all is said in done, but going through the process yields some difficult and challenging times. There are arguments about money, child custody, residences, and more. These disputes seem to go on forever with little to no resolution.

While every divorce is a little bit different, arguments about money generally top the list. Especially if you’re in business with your spouse, figuring out how to separate money can be a brutal task. The process involves lawyers and a lot of tears. Sure, there are things that be done to prevent divorce, but sometimes it is unavoidable.

Why is divorce so hard? Divorce attorneys in Scottsdale will tell you that there are a myriad of reasons as to why divorce is such a difficult position to be in. Generally speaking, there are a few very common moments that are the most difficult to deal with.

Let’s take a look at six of the hardest moments during divorce, according to women who have been through it.

Money Stress

During your marriage, there are times when you may discover your spouse handling finances in a secretive and non-transparent manner. For example, perhaps your spouse has a gambling addiction that results in a depletion of your funds. This can end up very, very messy when asserting a claim for “marital waste” in the pending divorce case.

Leaving Your Home

After pouring your heart and soul into your house (including potential renovations), having to either sell it or move out is a very difficult process. It is what it is, move on and move up.

Feeling Unsafe

One of the most compromising feelings is the notion that you’re in a dangerous predicament. During a divorce, you may experience blowout fights that can result in the feeling of being unsafe.

Seeing Someone Else

Things can get ugly if/when you find out that your spouse is seeing someone else prior to divorce papers officially being filed. This can be seen as disrespectful and downright rude. It can be heart breaking. You are not the first spouse to feel this way.

Time Away From The Kids

Not being near or with your kids each and every day can result in a lot of heartache. Experiencing divorce is hard enough; losing time with your kids may be harder.

Losing Your Best Friend

After all, people tend to marry who they refer to as their best friend. Knowing that you’re losing your friend and husband at the same time can be a deflating feeling.
