One of the hardest parts of a divorce is telling your children about it. For them, this is a tragic and hard event in their lives. Kids always want to see their parents stay together and to work through it. But sometimes that's not an option, and the breaking the news of the divorce can be extremely devastating.
If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse have decided to divorce, you are likely more than anything but indifferent towards the divorce process, and are likely anything but indifferent towards your spouse. Even the mere thought of your spouse creates a troublesome amount of emotions that may include: sadness, anger, frustration, guilt, and possibly longing. These feelings towards your spouse are completely understandable. But, it may benefit you to try to be indifferent towards your spouse during the divorce process.
During some divorce cases, the question of alimony may come up. Alimony, or better known as the maintenance in Missouri, is being awarded to more men, considering some women are now out-earning their husbands. Women are no different from men when it comes to their dislike of paying maintenance for their former spouse.
Divorce is comparable to an all you can eat cafeteria. You can enter the line, and choose a small salad, a single entrée, and a small side or two. You can even skip dessert. Or, you can begin heaping your tray with mounds of food until it is difficult to tell if you still have a plate underneath it all.
