|“How do I know if I have a problem with controlling/repressing my anger?”
If you have to ask, then most likely you do. But many times, the one with such a problem is quite capable of overlooking it totally. Every single person going through a divorce is going to be confronted with anger problems — anger at yourself, your spouse, your lawyer, your spouse’s lawyer, the system, or someone else. I strongly suggest counseling for every person that I interview about a matrimonial problem. This can be a devastating and emotionally volatile set of circumstances, even when all is “amicable”. You will almost never be harmed by seeking counseling and anger control. But let the anger get out of control, even one time, you may have irreparable damage to yourself or another.
