When I met my wife in college, I thought we’d be together for life.
Even though I had only gone through two relationships prior, there was a passion and closeness with her that I had never experienced before.
We started by studying together at a coffee shop that is a five minute walk from the college campus. After a few weeks of getting closer, we started officially dating. Despite a few arguments here and there, we had a close bond from the start. Unfortunately, neither of us were finished growing and developing, especially on a psychological level. We had yet to become the people we would be for the rest of our lives. As we graduated and transitioned into our respective careers, the flame between us steadily dwindled. Thankfully we never ended up having children together, because now we’re in the process of getting a divorce. On the one hand, it’s amicable and neither of us has spit fire at one another, which is more than most can hope for a breakup. Still, it has been a rough experience for both of us. At first I thought I could handle the divorce without an attorney, but since we have split assets, I realized I needed legal advice. I don’t want either of us to come out of the divorce stuck in a financial predicament. To my surprise, I managed to find a great family and estate law attorney that is a short walk from my new apartment. I encouraged my soon-to-be ex-wife to get her own legal representation to make sure we are equally supported. I’m glad that she found a great family and estate law attorney as well, and now our divorce is nearly complete. I’m happy that our attorneys helped us through the rigors of our divorce.
