Here are some costs of divorce.
Divorce has huge financial and emotional costs
Divorce has a negative impact on the standard of living for the entire family, including children
Divorce impacts children's time they spend with each parent
Divorce encourages a lack of cooperation when parenting
Divorce breeds bad-mouthing of each other and alienation of the children from one or both parents
Divorce encourages " the grass is greener" kind of thinking when there is an expectation that problems will vanish as a result of divorce and obtaining a new spouse or partner, or just being single again
Divorce encourages family and friends to take sides causing the breakdown of a family's social structure
Divorce does not take away the negative feelings, but causes them to grow
Why bother with mediation? People don't change!
Think back 5 or 10 years. Are you the same person? Most likely the answer is "no". Is your spouse or partner the same person? Probably, not.
The fact is, people do change over time and are capable of making changes. Save Your Marriage mediation focuses on meeting the needs of each person, creating mutually acceptable solutions and bringing people together to solve what may seem to be insurmountable relationship problems.
