We are living in complicated times, and as the complexity of our day-to-day life is impacted, it can feel overwhelming as we deal with the responsibilities to our family, our work, and our community. The factors of “current times” include, but are not limited to, politics, wars, pandemics, economics, global weather changes, mass shootings, etc. [referred to as “stuff”]. All of these things seem to be more present at this time than in the past. However, all of these variables have been present in our lives in the past, but for whatever reasons, seem to be more prevalent now. Does this have any impact on divorce?
Of course, all things have an impact on divorce. But for some, this current “stuff” has more impact than others and may cause increased concerns/emotions/etc. The important thing to realize is that if reconciliation can replace divorce, that might be a good solution, but if reconciliation isn’t an option, and divorce is inevitable, then blending these variables/concerns into the overall agreement is important.
That said, a divorce is a phase in the life of those involved, and the significance varies from couple to couple, but the full consideration of all the factors impacting the divorce is part of the mediation process and is extremely important. Each situation is unique in its own right, and creating the best plan, considering the variables, is what the mediation process tries to accomplish.
