The number one reason for divorce is dissatisfaction or unhappiness in the marriage. I'm going to assume that folks who divorce for that reason do so, so they can move on to bigger and better relationships and life endeavors.
In a recent conversation with a therapist friend she said, "about two out of every ten of my clients who divorce claim to have a better life post-divorce. The rest move on to new relationships with the same old problems and the vast majority find that divorce didn't increase their level of happiness."
This got me wondering about readers who left low-conflict marriages that were less than pleasing to them in the hopes of finding something better. If this applies to you, I have a few questions.
What is your level of happiness since your divorce?
Have you found more success in subsequent relationships?
Did your divorce mean a positive change in work-life satisfaction?
Have you any regrets related to your divorce?
If your divorce has not led to a more satisfied life would you admit it?
