Moments may trigger emotional responses during divorce process

Ending a marriage means that multiple people's lives are going to change considerably. While some of those changes may be beneficial, it can still be difficult to let go of many of the aspects of life that hinged on that marital relationship. For this and other reasons, the divorce process can be an immensely emotional experience.

When some California residents first got married -- or many even before -- they likely thought about the future they would have with their spouses. Now that that relationship is ending, individuals may find themselves mourning events they had imagined that will now never come to be. For instance, many people imagine one day becoming parents and having children who are combinations of themselves and their spouse, and now that divorce is taking place, those children will not exist.

There are obvious details that people may miss after divorce, but some aspects may seem less obvious. For instance, individuals may miss having inside jokes with their former spouses or having the ability to share in activities that both parties enjoyed. It may be small realizations that trigger the most emotional reactions from people during their divorces.

While emotional difficulties are to be expected during such a life change, it may not be wise to allow those emotions to drive decision making. It can certainly be challenging to quell those feelings, but staying focused on the potential outcomes of the divorce process may better impact individuals' futures. If California residents would like assistance in working toward the results they desire, they may want to consider enlisting the assistance of family law attorneys.
