Reasons to stay married and when it's time to get divorced

42846561_S.jpgWhen some Missouri parents are considering divorce, they may question whether splitting up will have a major impact on the children. Depending on a family's situation, there may be reasons to stay married until the children are older. There also may be reasons to go through with the divorce.

Some parents may wish to stay together if there is still hope that the marriage can be repaired. While this often requires hard work and dedication, there are cases when couples have been able to work through the problems. Some spouses are simply better together than apart even if there is no longer any love there. Other parents chose to stay together because they understand the long-term effects of a divorce on children.

For other families, the reasons to get a divorce are stronger than the ones for staying together. For example, if there is abuse in the marriage, it is beneficial for both the victimized spouse and the children to get out. If both parents cannot get along and are happier apart, it is better that they go their separate ways. Being happy and able to live a stress-free life at home can be beneficial for the children even if the parents are no longer together.

The decision to get a divorce should never be taken lightly as it will have an impact on the children. However, if a divorce makes both individuals happier, and they are able to co-parent effectively, the kids will benefit from parents that are more relaxed. Even if the split is amicable, a family law attorney may work with a parent to create a schedule that allows both parties to work together to continue to raise their kids. Further, if one parent cannot raise the kids on his or her own, a lawyer may help the other seek full custody.
