DIVORCE Intended?

Questions to ask yourself before deciding on DIVORCE

.

.
1.  If you have met someone else, do you love your potential life and perhaps the new person more than your children and the life you experienced in your marriage?

.

.

2.  Is your happiness or lack of contentment in your marriage worth negatively impacting the emotional state of your children?      

Research consistently shows that a child/adolescent is more likely to engage in drinking, drugging, sexing and delinquent behavior when there is parental conflict or when the father is not involved in the child’s life.

3.  When you are on your deathbed-will you agree that the divorce and the break up of your family was worth the grief your children experienced?

.

.

4.  New relationships are always fun and exciting!  

Have you tried marriage counseling?  

Have you considered a marriage retreat to recapture the romance and love you had with your co-parent?

5.  Is the Bird-Nest method of custody an option for you and your co-parent?  

Bird-Nest custody offers minimal disruption in your children’s lives.  An optimal method that involves finding an apartment/dwelling near your home.  The children remain in your own home and one of the parent’s stays in the apartment when the other parent has custody.

Basically, the custody situation is reversed-instead of your child moving every 3-4 days the parents switch places with the co-parent and the child remains in their own environment.   

Note: This is a difficult task for many parents and may not even be an option in certain situations.
