Divorce and Child Custody: It’s About the Child

Divorce and Child Custody: It’s About the Child

If you are at the point in your relationship where you are considering divorce, you are not alone. Unfortunately, over 20% of first marriages will end in divorce within 5 years, while almost half of all marriages will end by the couple’s 20 year anniversary. While you may not have expected for your marriage to falter when you took your wedding vows, the fact is that something in your relationship has brought you to a place where divorce is has become a reality.

Family Portrait

A divorce can be an emotional and challenging time for both spouses, especially when one party isn’t interested in ending the marriage. Issues of marital property and assets can further complicate the matter, and disagreements regarding these matters can cause significant conflict between spouses. However, when you and your spouse have children together, there are a variety of other factors to take into consideration during your divorce.

When children are involved, a divorce can become especially complicated. The dynamics of the separation change when child custody issues are in play, and cutting all ties with your former spouse simply isn’t possible. Despite your desire to move on, having a child in common with your husband or wife means that you will always have a part in each other’s life. It is important to keep the conflict that you and your spouse are dealing with away from your children, as ongoing parental conflict can increase your child’s risk of social and psychological problems as a result of your divorce.

How To Make Time For Yourself As A Single Parent

How do I make time for myself as a single parent?

As a single parent we have to be really creative with time. We need to make sure that we have time to read magazines if we wanted, to make sure we have time to do the things we did before, so we don’t feel ripped off or angry about all of the limits we have now. You can set up little rituals around the house. You can set up a ritual where mommy takes a bath at 8:00, where she can read magazines, light a candle, or take some time for herself. While mommy’s doing that, you go and read a book or you watch your favorite program. There’s little rituals you can create which actually make it a lot more fun for the whole family, and you get to actually take care of yourself as well.

Being a Single Parent — FamilyDoctor.org

Before having children, most people may picture a family with two parents. However, for many people, the reality is that they are the only parent. Although raising a child as a single parent can be challenging, it can also be rewarding. The following are some tips to help you deal with the challenges of being a single parent and create a positive environment for your child.

Finding Help

You may be a single parent, but you are probably not alone. If you have family members or friends who are willing to help, let them. If you don’t have family members or friends who can help you, look for a support group for single parents. You’ll meet other people who are in similar situations. Participating in a support group gives you a chance to share your feelings and get advice.

Living With a Single Parent

If you live with one parent, you know that a lot of other kids do, too. More than 20 million kids in the United States live with one parent. Separation and divorce are the most common reasons for this. In other cases, the mom and dad may never have lived together, or one of them may have died.

Living with one parent instead of two can bring out a lot of emotions. These feelings can be pretty strong, and they can be confusing, too. You might feel terribly sad and angry because your parents divorced.
