  1. Depression Despite Having Wanted to Divorce for a Long Time
  2. It is common that a person has been dreaming of the day they could get divorced from their spouse they have been unhappily married to. They are then shocked to discover that when it is time for the divorce, they actually become depressed.

    On the surface, it may seem as though this makes no sense but the fact is that there were reasons you married your spouse in the first place and it is likely that you had some good times. You may have children together, or you may simply have had dreams for the two of you at one point that it is finally sinking in are never going to come true. This is a big change and it is normal to have big feelings about it.

  3. Fear of Dying Alone
  4. Whether the marriage is “good” or “bad,” it likely provides some stability in your life, including giving people the feeling that they are not going to die alone. Many people who are getting divorced cannot stand the idea of dating and getting remarried – so surely dying alone is the only option? The truth is that there are many options out there that can provide comfort in your older years – and most of them do not involve romantic love.

  5. Difficulty Dealing with Any Task or Amount of Stress
  6. The divorce process can be quite tedious and it can involve a lot of stress. You are also likely dealing with moving to a new home, changing your utilities, potentially changing your name, opening new bank accounts – the list can seem endless. In fact, all too often couples stay married simply because the idea of going through this hassle doesn’t seem worth it.
