When to Divorce

when to divorce

When to divorce? With over half of marriages ending in divorce, are people too quick to call it quits? When should you work and fight for your marriage and when to divorce?

In this podcast,Dr. Jim McGloin, who has over 30 years of experience in couples counseling and Lesa Fischer, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker discuss the signs of a troubled marriage and what to do about it.

Dr. McGloin and Ms. Fisher begin the discussion by describing what divorce can mean:

“Sometimes divorce is a healthy and necessary step and can be turned into a healthy advantage.” But Ms. Fisher adds “they come in and think that they are ready for that divorce…with the advantage of taking some time for a pause with a therapist and some help, you can get the opportunity to evaluate whether or not that’s the right choice.”

This podcast explores:

What are some of the biggest tensions in most marriages?

Are there signs that a marriage is worth saving?

How do you know you are divorcing for the wrong reason?

What are the signs that divorce is the right decision?

Should you stay together for the kids?

While the question of when to divorce is far from clear-cut, this podcast outlines some key factors to consider before ending a marriage.
