I just had a reader snark at me and call divorce the easy way out.
Now, I’ve never been through a legal divorce. Been in a quad and had members move out, so it was about as close to one as I’ve ever been through.
Ya know, for all that the breakup(s) was about as smooth and “grownup” as you could possibly expect, “easy” is not an adjective I would have used. I cannot BEGIN to think of the legal and financial nightmare (even in the face of people behaving themselves) that would be a legal divorce.
Maybe I’m wuss, but I don’t see a bad relationship staying together OR divorce as particularly easy. Picking really compatible partners and having a good relationship genuinely seems easier.
