Going through a divorce is never easy. Although splitting up is certainly the right choice for some couples, it is a complicated process. The emotions that come with ending a deeply personal relationship after years or even decades can make it difficult to stay focused on what’s important, or to resist the temptations to lash out and use the divorce process as a weapon. When a divorce begins to move in this direction, everyone concerned is almost certain to lose.
