Why Do Couples Make Divorce so Complicated?

Apr 30, 2015


Divorce is never a pretty thing and many people these days find that divorce is the only solution. However, some couples both agree that it’s the best option, while others may not. Divorce can be difficult if there are issues that take place, and why it becomes difficult can happen for any number of reasons.

Feelings Get Hurt

For one, feelings may get hurt which can affect rational thinking. For instance, if infidelity is the reason for the divorce, the spouse who was cheated on can seem like they have lost the battle at keeping their partner happy.


If there are children involved and the wife is ready to get things moving, the father may try to fight for his right to custody over the child as well as other assets that the couple may have gained during marriage. Hurt feelings can lead to a broken system and can mean a long and drawn out divorce that becomes difficult.

Act Like a Child

Another reason divorce may not go as smoothly as it could is couples tend to let their inner child come out. Fighting takes place and the judge may order mediation which entails the couple coming to an agreement but this may not always work.

Some couples have one person who is out for revenge and mediation becomes a waste of time as divorce can be about sacrificing and about give and take. These days there is about 90% of couples who want divorce who have mediation that is required.

Attorney Drags out the Case

In some cases, divorce attorneys will drag out a case as they get paid by the hour and can rake in the commission you are paying them rather than giving you a cut and dry divorce case. This leads to a lot of tension and some attorneys don’t offer the right guidance that you might need.

The Actual Laws

Some states have specific regulations and laws that need to be followed for a divorce to take place and this can prolong the system adding even more frustration to the couple making them fork out more money that some don’t have. Basically put, the deeper the pockets, the better the outcome.

Divorce can be clean in most cases if couples would learn to come to agreements on different issues, but for some things, such as children being involved what’s best for the couple may not always be best for the child so some couples drag out the divorce process to prove a point.
