Consider grounds for divorce early, expert urges

Any couples considering getting divorced may wish to heed the advice issued by one expert.

Writing for the Sonoma Valley Sun, Dr Jeffery Low has stated that divorce is rated as the second most stressful life event, following only the death of a child.

However, he urged couples that in many cases divorce can be the right course of action to take to ensure their long-term future happiness.

"You do everything you can to avoid it, but when staying married will do even more damage than divorce, it's time to go," Dr Low said.

He also advised couples to "decide on what the grounds are for divorce, way before the idea of getting divorced arises".

If one partner finds they do have grounds for divorce they may also wish to consider drawing up their own divorce papers as this can help to eliminate the stress of going to court over the matter.
