The break-up of a marriage is admittedly emotional, and our Stamford family attorney can provide you with tips on how to constructively channel your grief and anger during a divorce. The grief process varies, depending on many factors, including the length of the marriage, who initiated the divorce, the circumstances surrounding the divorce, and the ability of the parties to settle their differences amiably. When a couple is at different stages during the grief process, they can struggle with negotiating resolutions and a settlement.
Both parties should be honest with each other and express where they are at in the process. One party may feel overly emotional while the other person stuffs their feelings. Both people should work at vulnerability in order to move ahead with the necessary legalities.
However, it’s easy for both parties to default to expressions of anger when a marriage ends. They might view their spouse’s behavior as an attack and then lash out in anger. Divorce is a time of uncertainty and confusion, which contribute to anger as well. However, anger will complicate and delay a divorce.
If your spouse is hurtful or angry, refuse to engage with him or her. Do not expend your energy, but acknowledge their anger when possible. Refusing to react will help defuse the outburst even though it can be difficult to remain calm.
