You and your partner are no longer close to each other. You don’t feel that there’s any love, understanding or quality communication between you. You think that your marriage is a disaster and it will inevitably come to a divorce. It seems like there is nothing you can do to save it. Is it really this dramatic? Or are there ways to save the marriage and make it even better than it was before the crisis? In this article, we are going to look at things that can make families get better, even after they’ve come to the edge of break-up.
Divorce is one of the most stressful events a person can have in their life. In fact, it’s the second most stressful thing on the Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRRS), more commonly known as the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, topped only by the death of a loved one. So it’s no wonder that now, going through separation and divorce, you feel absolutely devastated and lonely.
It would be a mistake to think that the family as a concept is limited to a narrow interpretation. When you think of your new family, made up of you and your child, do not confine yourself to the norm where it is obligatory to raise a child together with their other biological parent. Human life is unpredictable, and any configuration can lead to positive results.
