Date October 4, 2018

Psychologists claim that it is better to get a divorce than to live in a marriage that doesn’t bring you happiness. Life is too short to waste it on unhealthy relationships.

So why the thought of divorce causes us to panic? How will I live alone? How will our children react to this? Am I destined to live alone until the end of my days?


Naturally, such negative thoughts cause only pain and depression. However, if you try to focus on the positive, a divorce may actually bring some unimaginable advantages in case you are suffering in an unhealthy relationship. There are at least 11 reasons why a divorce is much better than living in an unhappy marriage.

1. Marriage is safe, but a divorce will allow you to start a new life!

If you have children, it is better to get a divorce than to live in a bad marriage. The formation of the child’s psyche occurs at an early age. And if children see their parents fight all the time, in the future, they will most likely act in a similar way in their families.

3. You deserve a partner who will treat you the same way you treat him.

Divorce is definitely better than marriage without love. All people deserve to be loved. Why should you live in a marriage where love and respect aren’t a priority?

4. After a divorce, you will gain not only freedom but also a chance to meet a more suitable partner.
