You don't enter a marriage expecting to divorce by the five, ten, or twenty-year mark. At least, most people don't and you shouldn't.

But that decision carries significant consequences for your emotional health. The American Psychology Association (APA) released a guide to assist people considering divorce on the merits of mediation. This post will go over what the APA had to say.
