If you feel the desire to end your marriage, you are not alone, but how do you tell your spouse you want a divorce?
A San Diego divorce lawyer has a few steps for when you need to have “the talk.”
Telling your spouse you want a divorce begins with arranging a face-to-face discussion, away from the hustle and bustle of daily schedules.
Step 1. Directly tell your spouse as gently as possible that you want to end your marriage. Avoid vague or unclear statements when approaching your spouse.
Step 2. Clearly state you don’t want a divorce because of anything that your spouse has or hasn’t done. No benefit comes from pointing fingers.
Step 3. Give your spouse an opportunity during conversation to share initial feelings with you, but don’t force a statement.
Step 4. Lay out a time frame you would like to follow in obtaining a divorce and see if your spouse has any thoughts on the chosen time. Don’t force a response.
Step 5. Schedule a follow up time with another conversation about your marriage and divorce, but let your spouse choose the time.
