For parents, divorce during the holidays can be challenging

During the wedding no couple likes to think about the possibility of their marriage ending. However, this is a common scenario for couples in Arizona and across America, as some statistics indicate that as many as half of all marriages these days end in divorce. Separating from a spouse is never easy, but during the holidays divorce can be even more difficult and stressful, especially for parents.

Parents often take turns and alternate holidays with the children in most parenting agreements. For newly single parents, spending the holidays without children can induce anxiety and border on devastation. However, being upset around the children may also make the kids upset. Those parents who may not get to spend the holidays with children may find it helpful to plan a day in advance to celebrate.

This can also be a great time to establish new traditions. Added free time could be a blessing and an opportunity for a fresh start. It is never fun for parents to be alone during the holidays. Making plans to have friends and family over to visit may bring enjoyment back. New traditions can become great memories.

Ending a marriage and separating the family can be extremely difficult around the holidays. During this time, it can be difficult to stay positive, but that is exactly what newly divorced parents should try to do. Remain hopeful that establishing new traditions can bring about wonderful experiences and, over time, those feelings of sadness and emptiness will start to fade. It is always helpful to have guidance, especially from a legal perspective. Those in Arizona who have questions regarding separation and divorce could benefit from discussions with an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.
