I’m not sure why this never occurred to me when I was contemplating a divorce, so maybe it hasn’t occurred to you, either.
If something’s missing in your marriage—romance, conversation, encouragement, quality time together, children, pleasant surprises, shared interests, help with errands or chores, physical touch, compliments, whatever—give some thought to this. How will get more of it after the divorce?
It’s hard to find another mate, much harder than you might remember if you last looked for one while in school. You might be on your own for quite some time. How will you get this need met after you’re divorced? What will you try?
You just might want to try those things now, while you’re still married.
