Utah is a happy state with devoted marriages. Because of the strong influence of the Latter Day Saints church, most couples are married early and often. There is absolutely nothing wrong with marrying early and knowing that your relationship will grow along with your devout faith can be very satisfying. However, not everyone is the same, and not every relationship can be saved. In fact, there are situations in which a marriage should not be saved. There are very intimate and personal reasons why marriage should not continue and you should not feel ashamed for deciding to take your safety into consideration.
Our Salt Lake City Divorce attorney at Emy A. Cordano, Attorney at Law, has a strong belief that if you are willing to commit to marriage then you have the right to opt for a divorce. We believe that you have put just as much thought and consideration into your divorce as you did your marriage. Our Divorce Attorneys understand that this time is sensitive and sometimes can really affect your mental and physical health.
The best way to feel more comfortable with your decision is to learn more about it. It is important to read the reasons why other couples divorced and what they did afterward. In research conducted in the early 2000’s couples who divorced stated that the main reasons were conflict, infidelity, and lack of commitment. However, when you dig deeper into the comments and scenarios around the relationship three more, three more honest, answers evolved: infidelity, drug or alcohol abuse, domestic violence.
It was discovered that women were more vocal in ending the relationship when men were behaving badly than men. However, that does not mean that men were not subjected to women behaving badly. The more pressing concern is that men are less likely to report domestic violence. This is concerning because any kind of domestic violence is wrong. You should never be subjected to any form of emotional or physical abuse while in a relationship of any kind. It is for these reasons that a divorce should be completed because personal safety should be a top priority especially if children are involved.
If you or a loved one is dealing with a marriage where one partner is not faithful, abusing substances, or is domestically violent then divorce needs to be an option on the table. A divorce can protect you or your loved one from staying in that unhealthy situation. Divorce doesn’t erase what has happened to you or your loved one, but it can be a step in the right direction.
