Emotional Decisions? Yikes!

Sometimes people just want out of the marriage. Often, their only concern is relieving their feelings of anger, and frustration. I have had some people tell me that they didn’t care what happened, they just wanted things over with. Still others are bent upon revenge, frozen by guilt, or may be in denial (they don’t want the divorce and are sure that he/she will change their mind). Regardless, decisions made in an emotional moment do not tend to be the best for the client. I like to slow people down, try to remove the emotions and have them look at the divorce like they might review a business deal. This helps people to really make the best choices, not just for today, but also for their future.
