Sarah’s Getting Divorced — How Did this Happen, and What Now?

Sarah married her husband what seems like forever ago.

That was a time of such joy and hope. Back then, Sarah felt like she was on top of the world and that her life had such potential.

Sarah and her husband got through school and had kids. These births were, of course, filled with joy and anticipation.

Eventually, Sarah and her husband bought a house for their family.

Overall, things were good, and Sarah and her husband felt close — for a few years. Then life happened.

Sarah worked, she took care of the kids and helped with the house, she saw her friends and family sometimes, she went out with her husband sometimes.

But Sarah could feel a serious problem: she and her husband weren’t connecting like they used to. They were drifting apart.

In the beginning, it wasn’t anything major, just not being as close as before.

Then the fights got more frequent and worse. Sarah and her husband weren’t on the same page anymore.

Sometimes they would talk and come together on some things for a while, but they always drifted back apart, and it usually didn’t take long.

Sarah didn’t find her husband nearly as attractive as she used to. Part of this was he had let himself go a little (and, to be fair, so had she), but mostly her husband wasn’t the guy she fell in love when they got married.

Because of all this, intimacy decreased, which increased the problems.

By now, Sarah and her husband were spending more time apart. They started really resenting each other. They were living more like roommates than husband and wife. Keeping up appearances, but not much else.

Then, like it always does in these situations, something snapped.

It might have been the fighting and her husband’s meanness. It might have been her husband talking with other women at work and over email (and the adultery Sarah suspected, but couldn’t prove, was going on).

Whatever it was, Sarah was done. She couldn’t do it anymore. She wanted out. She wanted a divorce.

Then, Sarah’s anxiety kicked in.

She didn’t know how much time or what custody she may have with her kids. She didn’t know if she’d have enough money to live on, or if she’d have enough to take care of the kids. She didn’t know how divorce worked in the courts or even how to get a divorce started.

Sarah was confused and scared.

So, Sarah went to the internet and started checking out divorce. She read tons of different sites and found a lot said totally different things about money and custody.

Attorney websites weren’t much help. The sites talked about how great the attorney was, but they didn’t actually answer the questions Sarah had about divorce. And when lawyers did explain things online, they talked like lawyers, which made everything hard to understand.

Sarah just wanted someone to answer her questions in simple, plain English.

If she understood how divorce worked and had her questions answered, she might not feel so anxious (“anxious” is really just another word for “fearful”) and she might be able to figure out what to do and how to protect her kids and her money.
