One thing that people often struggle with, when thinking about divorce, is knowing whether or not it’s really time to take that step. They know that they can’t take it back. Once they mention it to their spouse, the relationship changes. They don’t want to bring it up too soon or regret it later. 

One issue to consider is whether or not you have tried to solve your problems and save the marriage. Maybe that has always been your goal, and you’ve tried repeatedly. Nothing has changed. Nothing has gotten better. Maybe your spouse hasn’t even attempted to change, and you’re tired of it. 

You may also want to think about whether or not there was a major event that you think of as a “deal-breaker.” Some divorces happen for a multitude of little reasons, but maybe you can point to one single event. For instance, maybe you found out your spouse wasn’t faithful. For many people, things like this cannot be overcome. The marriage is over and they just need to make it official. 

You should also consider if your attitudes have fundamentally changed. There’s a big difference between being frustrated with someone and actively feeling contempt for that person. Sometimes, the things that have happened in the marriage really changed something inside both of you so that it will never be the same again. 

When you do decide that it is time for a divorce, make sure that you consider all of the different options you have. You also need to know what rights you have and exactly what steps can get the process started.
