Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is rumored to have told his wife he wanted a divorce as she was recovering in the hospital from a cancer operation. Many other husbands and wives have left their spouses at the first sign of chronic illness or financial hardship.
Regardless of whether you are healthy or wealthy, hearing your spouse say, “I want a divorce” is never easy. You may have just accepted a job where your spouse wanted to live, and where you absolutely don’t want to live without him/her. You may now have to think about whether your child will have to turn down Brown’s early decision offer in favor of MSU or UConn.
Regardless of how bad the timing is, there is no guarantee that things can’t get even worse. You need to think clearly and make the right decisions early on to secure a financially and personally stablefooting for the future. Sticking your head in the sandor turning to substances like alcohol and cannabis to cope likely won’t solve your problems. What could start turning the train around is competent legal advice.
