Unseen and True Cost Of A Divorce May Be Higher Than You Think

Jul 3, 2008
Sadly, the story is all too common: Instead of \"happily ever after,\" a couple is torn apart by an affair or financial troubles, and the two turn to a divorce as a quick solution to a messy problem. As the marriage ends, both parties end up paying a high cost both financially and emotionally.

These days, our society accepts divorce as an unfortunate but accepted reality of married life. While annulments have been around for centuries, divorces are different. Divorce is a way of ending a marriage, without the death of a spouse, while a more traditional annulment declared that a marriage was void from the beginning.

Some married couples mistakenly view divorce as a magic solution to their relationship problems. Yet in most cases this isn't so and more disturbing is that they often jump to divorce without knowing the high cost of divorce, financially or emotionally.

Another common misunderstanding about divorce is that most people think that divorces will be over in a short period, and they can continue living they're lives as if nothing happened. We'll the fact is that the average divorce last for about two years and most of the time costing more financially than first imagined.

The financial cost of divorce differs from cases to cases. Although, most lawyers would tell you that the cost of a one-day trial would be around $3,000. That's the just for the lawyers alone. If you think of tagging along expert witnesses, the fees would significantly over and above that.

Along with the \"sticker price\" of the divorce, the husband and wife sometimes forget about the hidden fees. All of a sudden, each individual needs to find a new way to pay rental or mortgage payments. Auto and health insurance change. Alimony and child support can sometimes require large payments. Without warning, one's cost of living can go through the roof.

Easily overlooked by many couples is the emotional toll they take from going through a divorce as well. A messy divorce can conceivably cause later psychological problems and leave people \"living in the past.\" Unresolved anger is often a result.

Throughout the divorce process, each party will also likely feel a need to blame the other, reinforcing the sense of wrongdoing and victimhood. Instead of taking responsibility to fix the problem, a divorce encourages a person to place the blame for the marital stress on the other person. This could lead to a feeling of not being able to do anything about, helplessness, and all too often, clinical depression.
