For many people who have gone through divorce, hindsight is like 20/20 vision. They may had solid plans for what they wanted to do after the divorce, or had preconceived notions about how the process was going to work. Unfortunately, life does not always go according to plan, and we have to deal with unexpected circumstances.
Nevertheless, it is better to go through a divorce with an informed sense of what to expect while you are divorcing, and what life may be like after the decree is issued. This post will provide some helpful hints to give you some insight.
Divorce is not fun, but better time lie ahead - Unless you are all but ready to move on with life, divorce comes with some considerable emotional turns, judgment from others, and difficult questions from kids. However, life gets better and you are likely going to appreciate the decision in the long run.
The "traditional" family is changing - Blended families are becoming more common, so if you think that you will never have a traditional family because of divorce, think again.
Your ex may still stress you out - The old adage "the more things change, the more they stay the same" applies here. Your ex may continue to try to push your buttons as you try to grow and move on, especially if they have not.
Parenting class lessons work - These lessons are more than just a family court requirement, they help you keep things in perspective when you have disputes with your ex.
