3 Tips For Dealing With An Unexpected Breakup
According to a recent CNN report, the divorce rate and breakups go up during Valentine’s Day or after the day of love. In fact, the day after Valentine’s Day begins the busy season for divorce attorneys. Apparently the effects of Cupid’s arrow wore off.
We don’t wish this painful and emotional experience on anyone. But if you, a friend, or a family member have to go through this process, here are 3 quick tips to dealing with the unexpected breakup so that you come out a winner.
1. Look for the telltale signs. Humans are creatures of habit. So anything out of the ordinary should be a telltale sign that something is wrong. For example, your wife suddenly doesn’t want to spend time with you, or when you are together, she lights up when she receives text messages. Or if your boyfriend and father of your children is usually communicative with you, but suddenly seems distant and cold. Telltale signs are a way to get your attention and to spring you into action.
2. Take inventory. If you are married and suspect that things have gone awry in your relationship, be sure to take inventory of personal and marital property. Divorces tend to be bitter and can get nasty, and property often goes missing or gets destroyed. Taking inventory of personal and marital property by video recording or taking photos of the property will prepare you in the event things turn sour.
3. Speak to a professional right away. It is always better to be proactive than reactive. Don’t wait until a divorce is filed by your spouse to prepare for the divorce. Chances are that your spouse has already hired a lawyer, so it is best to speak to a lawyer to prepare yourself for what is likely to happen on the long emotional roller coaster ahead and to weigh your legal options. It is also a good idea to speak to a marriage or divorce counselor to help save your marriage or to cope with the divorce process.
There are many other issues to consider such as time-sharing and visitation if children are involved, child and spousal support, and division of assets and liabilities. Getting matched with a good family lawyer can assist you with understanding these issues.
But looking on the bright side, divorce rates are steadily dropping from their peaks in the 70s and 80s. So that means that for a majority of couples, Valentine’s Day will be a day of celebrating love and romance with your special someone, as it should be.
