Working through a strained marriage during the holidays

It is not uncommon for couples who are in a strained relationship to "wait things out" during the holiday season. The reasons are multiple. The holiday season is traditionally a time when families come together, whether it is for family dinners, social gatherings or to exchange gifts and celebrate their love for one another.

For couples who are currently unhappy, these times may help pull each spouse closer together and remind them of the love they share, or it may show that there is an emotional disconnect. It is not uncommon for the holidays to be a deciding factor when it comes to whether a couple will try to work through the relationship troubles, or decide that ultimately the marriage is broken beyond repair.

For married couples with children, it is often a time to try to enjoy their time together in an effort to keep things enjoyable and to make the most of the situation for the children involved. Then after the holidays, the spouses can move forward and proceed with the divorce and not affect their children's holiday season.

The holiday season is also costly for many Americans. Whether they are travelling to visit family or for pleasure, spending money on gifts or even just treating themselves with a few nights out, the costs can add up. This can also act as a reminder on how finances will change following a divorce. During these times, it may be wise to pay special attention to each spouse's spending habits and to become more aware of what is necessary when it comes to the potential for child support down the line.

It is important to find someone who listens to your individual situation and your specific needs to craft documents that assure that all your wishes are properly met. Having individual and undivided attention in a professional relationship between a lawyer and his or client is crucial to seeing that all their needs are appropriately met.
