While few people enter a marriage expecting it to end in divorce, some spouses find divorce to be a solution to their marital woes. A spouse may find that the marriage's end is a relief instead of a source of shame, and often both spouses - and any children - find their quality of life has improved after a divorce. This means that spouses and children may experience less stress after a divorce.
Not long ago a previous post here discussed some ways to make the divorce process itself less stressful. When telling friends and family of a divorce, being direct may be the best course of action. But, you also might want to forewarn them that you are going to share difficult news with them. Spouses should also remember that they may not get exactly what they want in the negotiations prior to dissolution, so they should think about what sorts of concessions they would be willing to make to reach an acceptable compromise.
