Telling Others about Your Decision to Divorce

At the BB Law Group PLLC, our lawyers know that many couples in The Woodlands just know at some point that their marriage is not working, and that filing for divorce is the right path for them. However, because other people in their lives often react poorly or in an undesirable way to the announcement of a divorce, many people find themselves struggling with telling others about this decision. Fortunately, there are some general strategies and tips that you can use that could possibly make this process easier on you.

Helpful Tips

In general, the decision to talk about your divorce is your own, so only you can decide when to tell someone about your decision to file for divorce. However, in order to potentially make this decision, not to mention the actually act of telling, easier, consider using the following tips:

  • Stay firm and confident in your decision
  • Don’t feel obligated to discuss your private reasons for divorce
  • Avoid becoming confrontational with the person
  • Try to prevent the divorce from disrupting work and/or family relationships

These tips might make telling friends, coworkers, and loved ones about your divorce somewhat easier.
