Should you stay in your marriage?

No one can answer that question for you.  You are the only one who can do so.  A good starting point is if there are children involved.  Are you ready to raise your children by yourself or would you prefer a two-parent home?  Staying in a marriage to see your children every day is not a good reason – to avoid the pain associated with that scenario.

Getting a divorce to achieve a specific goal is a good reason to leave a marriage that does not seem to be working.  A person with a goal, in most cases, will take action and initiate a divorce – while a person who is in pain will not.  The latter only sees the negativity, the problems that could arise.  A goal-oriented person sees the benefits that the future can bring. 

If you are contemplating divorce, ask yourself, “Have I done everything I can to improve my relationship?”  If the answer is “yes”, it is time to contact an experienced California Family Law attorney who can help you with your next steps and get you on the right path for the future.  Letting go of an unhealthy relationship is probably the best decision you will ever make.
