Most people think of Valentine’s Day as a romantic time in which happy couples get to spend quality time together. Believe it or not, the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day are also a very popular time for divorces.
January and February are especially busy times for dissolutions and this period of time is typically known to family law attorneys as “divorce season”. This is largely because many people wait until after the busy and stressful holiday season in December to follow through with their divorce plans.
As stressful and emotional as the dissolution process can be, for many couples separating from an unhappy marriage is the opportunity for a fresh start. In this way, a Valentine’s Day divorce can give someone a chance to move forward, while allowing both partners the chance to reflect on what is best for themselves and their children. Allowing yourself the chance to admit that things are not working out and being honest if with your spouse is at least something to be proud of. While separation can be extremely hard when you are going through the motions, it can end up being a blessing in disguise. Perhaps when the dissolution process is finally over and you are ready to date again you can redefine what Valentine’s Day means to you.
