Should you forgive your spouse? The lawyerly answer is ” it depends”. Know your rights first. Then you can make an informed decision as to whether forgiveness is easier or to move on is easier. Consider the physical, mental and financial parameters. Here’s how:
1. Talk to a shrink. Marriage counseling and psychotherapy can do one of two things: it can put the marriage back on track, or help with dismantling it.
2. Talk to a lawyer. Divorce lawyers can tell you what rights you may have if you stay or if you go. We can also predict outcomes concerning the family finances and your obligations.
3. Talk to an accountant. There are tax ramifications of splits of marital assets and debts.
As with any divorce, there are physical, mental and financial stresses. However, those may seem easier than forgiving and forgetting, or living every day in a lie.
