Divorce is beyond painful.
You know that already. Yet here you are, wondering whether to divorce your husband or stay together.
It’s a huge decision. We know it will take more than a quiz to make this choice.
But I think our quiz can still help. Think of it like a mirror, reflecting what’s already inside you. We’re just here to help you uncover how you really feel.
Of course, you have to factor in more than just your feelings if you’re deciding whether you want a divorce. You also have to think about:
- shared finances
- living situation
- the rest of your life
Ready To Consider Divorce? A Checklist
Before you go any further: are you sure divorce should be on the table? Maybe you and him are just going through a rough patch.
Bringing up divorce with your husband is a huge deal. Just suggesting it will cause him a lot of pain, and it’s something he will never forget – even if you stay together.
Here are some things to ask yourself (and be honest!):
- is he going through something temporary that’s affecting his behavior?
- how much am I contributing to the problems in our marriage?
- have I been giving it my all? or am I holding back?
- could we try marriage counseling first? and would that help?
- do I have religious conflicts with divorce?
- is my husband willing to make changes in order to help our marriage? have we discussed it?
These are just some of the things you need to think about before you’re ready to talk about divorce.
Divorce: Should I Go Through With It?
Maybe you’ve gone through our checklist and decided it’s time to think about divorce.
Thinking about it is one thing… but are you actually ready to move forward with it?
The process of getting a divorce will drain you emotionally and financially. You have to be sure you really want it.
The good news is that you probably don’t have to decide immediately. You can still take some time to think this through, even if you’re unhappy. The exception here is if you are in danger of some kind.
Note About Domestic Abuse
If you are concerned for you or your children’s safety, please seek help. Your safety is more important than anything else – much more important than what our divorce quiz has to say.
If you live in the United States you can call the Domestic Abuse Hotline at 1-800-799-7233, or visit their website.
We put together a set of questions for you. The questions are to help you reflect on how you really feel.
You’ve probably already thought about some of these questions before. But others might seem unusual. Their purpose is to help you gain some clarity on your situation.
Answer each one carefully. At the end you will get a short report summarizing your results.
Remember: this quiz is only meant to help you with your own thinking. Deciding to get a divorce will be one of the biggest decisions in your life, and it’s ultimately up to you. I just hope our quiz can help you a bit.
