The “D” Word: Divorce

, • POSTED ON: September 12, 2019

Divorce. The "D" word. It is the equivalent to a swear word in many households and religions. But divorce is sometimes necessary to preserve our happiness and a healthy environment for ourselves and our children.

Like many people, you may feel shame when you are talking about divorce or even considering it. Shame is a powerful emotion. But, it is time to shed the shame and really talk about what it means to start looking at divorce in South Dakota. 

Now a days, it is less acceptable to stay in an unhealthy marriage "for the kids" because of the known effects that marital conflict has on children. Instead studies have shown that having two happy parents is better than two unhappy parents, even if those parents are in different households. 

Divorce is hard, so do not make it harder on yourself. Educate yourself, prepare yourself, and get a support system (including a great family law attorney). Prepare for the roller coaster, and most importantly, vow to take care of yourself and your happiness. Call Harris Law Co. at 605-702-4997 to discuss how you can be prepared if you are thinking of filing for divorce. #ShedtheShame #Inform #Educate #Empower
