Even though roughly half of all first marriages in the United States end in divorce, that doesn’t seem to make divorce any easier on people. Often, divorce comes as a shock to couples who thought their love would last forever. They feel like their lives are turned upside-down even though statistically, the odds were against them from day one.
In our experience, men and women tend to have two BIG fears when they get a divorce: 1) they’re afraid of being broke, and 2) they’re afraid of being alone. In fact, these fears are so strong that they hold a lot of unhappy spouses back from filing for divorce. They think, “I can’t afford to be single” or “I’ll die all alone” so they stay in an unsatisfying marriage because they think maybe it’s better than the alternative.
Debunking the Biggest Divorce Fears
We want to tell you right now that while the fear of being broke and alone are very real to people while they’re getting a divorce, they’re just fears. You can’t give these fears any power because they are subjective. Merriam-Webster defines subjective as “lacking in reality or substance.” There are a million ways to make money and there are just as many “fish in the sea” so to speak.
