Divorce can be a very painful, confusing, and traumatic process that negatively affects the entire family. Although I am a huge proponent of working through the problems in a marriage, if the contempt in your marriage has grown to the point of divorce, please consider divorce therapy. Divorce therapy can provide enhanced understanding of the divorce process, which includes communication skills, relational skills, co-parenting skills, and transitional knowledge.
