Let’s face it. Not every marriage is going to survive infidelity. But are you really ready for divorce?
It‘s probably impossible to know what percentage of marriages end in divorce as a result of infidelity. But based on the reader surveys we’ve conducted over the years, the percentage of divorced and/or separated respondents hovers around 17%. That’s a fairly large percentage indeed.
We’re sure that there are many of you who may still be contemplating divorce, or who really want to file for divorce but feel that you can’t (or won’t) for various reasons.
We recently came across a very informative article on Mediate.com for those of you who may be considering it: Are You Really Ready for Divorce? The 8 Questions You Need to Ask.
And since the decision to obtain a divorce is one of the most crucial decisions a person can make with consequences that last for years or a lifetime, you might want to take a few minutes to read it.
We never really even came close to considering divorce, but we know this isn’t the case for everyone. We had a neighbor who as soon as she discovered her husband’s affair, kicked him out and filed for divorce. They sold their home and moved away a short time later. We often wonder what ever happened to them. We wonder if the woman is happy and whether or not she has found someone new. And we wonder if the husband is still with his affair partner and if he is happy – or living with regret.
