With divorce, it’s understandable that some men might want to rip off the band-aid as fast as possible. Rushing the process or making decisions fueled by emotion instead of reason can easily lead to mistakes. A man who feels guilty or just wants out of the relationship, might give in to whatever his former spouse is demanding, even if it’s unreasonable.
Another man might be so angry at his former spouse for leaving that divorce becomes a tool for personal revenge. Other men may simply ignore divorce papers as a way to delay the inevitable. Understand that making these kinds of emotionally driven mistakes in divorce can yield devastating lifelong consequences for your relationships with your kids, your finances, and your future.
