The holiday season represents the happiest time of the year for some. There is relaxing, eating, and time with family and friends to look forward to. However, not everyone faces the same cheer around the holidays. Spending more time with your family may encourage thoughts about things that you would like to change. For example, you may be having a hard time with your spouse and have considered divorce.
While some individuals who wish to separate from their spouse may do so immediately, others may want to consider the consequences of their actions during the holidays. Eiges & Orgel, PLLC can explain the potential impacts of holiday divorces.
Children Will Remember
Depending on the nature of your divorce, separating from your spouse during the holidays can severely impact your children. They are likely accustomed to spending every holiday together as a family unit, with little change in year-to-year traditions. However, after a separation, all of this will change. You will disrupt their usual patterns if you follow through with your divorce in the middle of the holiday season. Not only this, they may grow to dislike the holidays with the association of your divorce.
Additional Holiday Stress
The holiday season brings along additional stress. You are concerned with organizing schedules, attending family events, and ensuring all gifts are squared away. You also want to ensure that your children and family make long-lasting, meaningful memories. However, if you have troubles with your spouse and are considering divorce, it can bring additional stress. Choosing to follow through with a divorce during the holidays will only add to the stress by requiring extra work and planning from both spouses.
