You've made your decision, and you're getting a divorce. Now, the big question: What do you do with the house?
Marriages dissolve for countless reasons. Fractured relationships may mean more amicable breakups, while extreme circumstances can complicate divorce proceedings tremendously. The human instinct to assign blame in any conflict may make an at-fault divorce an appealing option for some distraught spouses. Determining fault is not as simple as it may seem, however.
As you get older, your perspective and goals may change, such as regarding marriage and divorce. Perhaps you stuck through an unhealthy, unhappy marriage due to social expectations or children. Now that divorce holds less social shame and the children are grown and gone, you may be considering finally ending the relationship.
Sometimes, a divorce doesn't just disrupt a single household. Instead, it can tear apart a family and prevent grandparents from continuing to enjoy a healthy relationship with their grandchildren.
Is a "peaceful" divorce even possible? Aren't all divorces filled with so much emotional and financial upheaval that conflict is guaranteed?
