MARRIAGE IS A JOURNEY
LETS NOT END IT IN SEPARATION OR DIVORCE
Marriage is the start of a journey, not an event. The end goal of any marriage is to be co-existing in a universe of love and harmony. To get there, however, requires a lot of kindness and forgiveness on both sides.
What partners often do not realise is that each bring in their own unique baggage of expectations and hurts, most of the latter just bobbing beneath the surface like many mines placed in the sea. We don’t even know they are there until we hit them. We know we cannot expect our partners to know about them because they cannot be seen, but when we do not know ourselves that they are there, how will we ever be able to plot a safe navigation path for our relationships?
One answer may be to consult a psychologist. Local to our office in Mudgeeraba is Ms Louisa Pickett of Elm Psychology Rooms. If you feel your relationship could use some fine tuning, call Louisa for help on 0439 369245 (https://www.elmpsychologyrooms.com/)
A psychologist can help you identify negative traits and guide you both to a healthier and more generous relationship.
If separation becomes inevitable, or you are considering separating, please phone our Family Law Specialist, Amanda Tomlinson, on 07 5530 5700 for an appointment to help guide you through the many questions you must have. There are so many issues to consider when the marriage journey result is divorce. How do you navigate a financial and property settlement that is fair and acceptable to both sides? If there are children involved, so many more questions are raised. Who has the children? When can the children see their parents? Do they want to live with one parent, but not the other? How much will all this cost me? What options do I have? Property & Financial settlement and Children & Parenting matters can be quite involved. Make sure you have an expert to assist you too.
