What is an Emotional Divorce?

When you and your spouse leave each other, move into separate residencies, and cease to share life together, that is considered a physical divorce. There is also such thing as an emotional divorce. This is when you separate your emotions from your marriage in such a way so that you are no longer in love with your spouse. Sadly, most divorces are ones-sided. Because of this, most divorces result in a one-sided emotional divorce while the other spouse remains heartbroken and very much in love. A person who has already separated herself emotionally will typically have an easier time moving on after divorce.

Spouses that are emotionally divorced are typically incommunicative, cold, distant, and irritable. They are often impatient with their spouse and spend a lot of time away from the home. This emotionally divorced spouse is normally the one that wants the process to move along fast as possible. A left behind spouse normally suffers from shock and he or she typically has no ideas that there were serious problems in the marriage. As well, there are a lot of times that a left behind spouse will try to save the marriage and will have feelings of fear about the future.

As well, these left behind spouses will typically display bizarre behaviors like harassing and stalking. If you are the left behind parent in a divorce relationship, the wisest thing that you can do is hire an attorney and accept the reality of the divorce. As hurtful as it is, there are some relationships that are not worth mending. When a spouse has already divorce mentally, it is probably best to carry through with the physical divorce Irrational behaviors like pleading for a spouse to return or stalking them could end in negative consequences. You may be forced to pay more spousal support or may lose the possibility to take joint custody of your children. Talk to an attorney at Cutter & Lax today if you want more information!
