Tips for telling my spouse I want a divorce

There might come a time when you can no longer continue with your marriage. It doesn't mean you are a bad person or that you have failed. It just means that it's time to move on to something different. Quite possibly one of the most difficult parts of getting a divorce is the initial conversation about it with your spouse. Here are some tips for telling your spouse you want a divorce.

This is an extremely important conversation that must be handled delicately. Make sure both of you have enough uninterrupted time before you broach the subject. If you have children, send them out with friends or to their grandparents. This is not the time for your kids to find out that you are getting a divorce.

The conversation could wind up being very long based on any questions your spouse might have or things he or she wants to discuss. Do not blow off your spouse because you didn't plan for this. Both of you deserve time to speak and ask questions so make sure this is possible.

Now is not the time to place blame on your spouse or even to defend your actions in the marriage. This discussion should solely be about wanting a divorce and how the two of you will move forward toward it. There will be plenty of discussions in the future about divorce and they will likely be more involved.

Having the conversation with your spouse about divorce is never easy, even if both of you knew it was inevitable. Follow the tips outlined here so that it goes as smooth as possible for both of you.
