The first reason that you should think about is money. Money gets in the way of a lot of things. It has been known to ruin friendships, it has been known to end relationships, and it can even cause problems in the closest of families. We don’t want to see this happen to you, so there are some simple rules that you should try to follow when it comes to finances. The first is that you should never lie about money. If you find yourself lying to your partner about money, ask yourself why you are doing this. There is no point, all that’s going to happen is they are going to be angry when they find out.
Don’t let money become an issue by constantly talking about it. Let your partner know how much you spent doing something, even if you think they are going to be mad. Talk about your budget and how best to fit everything in etc.
Lack Of Communication
If the two of you aren’t communicating, there isn’t going to be a relationship at all. You need to be able to talk to one another, and have hard conversations. It’s important that you can say phrases like ‘it hurts me when you do X’ without your partner blowing up on you. It’s also important that you are willing to talk about issues rather than just pretending that they aren’t going on. The more you bury things, the more unstable your relationship is going to become.
The final thing that we’re going to mention is stress. Stress is a major contributor to separation and people looking into family law. When things get too much, you immediately want to get out because that is what your instincts tell you to do. If the stress is overwhelming and you can’t cope anymore, then find someone to help you get through the separation, whether this is a lawyer or a therapist doesn’t matter at this point. Your mental health must come first.
