Common reasons for divorce and how to cope

No Colorado couple enters into a committed relationship with their minds on divorce, but the unthinkable can and does happen. In fact, there are quite a few common factors present among most divorces, according to the Huffington Post.

As most are already well-aware, disagreements of a financial nature are a leading aspect of many divorces. This is especially likely if spouses are unable to reach a common ground on household financial matters. Some may choose to splurge money on unnecessary luxuries, while others prefer to scrimp and save for unexpected occurrences. In many cases, it can be nearly impossible to reconcile these divergent financial views.

Codependency can also play a role in a couple’s decision to divorce. The best relationships involve two people with a healthy range of interests between them, and those that fail to retain their individuality may find themselves quickly dissatisfied with the state of their union. This is especially important when it comes to maintaining friendships outside of a marriage, which can lend a bit of perspective to a relationship.

Despite the ultimate reason for an uncoupling, there are a few steps one can take to make the process easier for all involved. Psychology Today recommends devising a co-parenting plan to ease some of the burden on both children as well as parents. A co-parenting plan is a contract devised between divorcing couples that spells out exactly how children will be cared for after separation occurs. Plans can include everything from how much time a child will spend with each parent to methods for making major decisions involving children. Having terms spelled out in black and white will prevent disagreements from occurring while also giving kids a bit of stability in the process.
