Hi :)

Thank you so much!

Most things that lead to a divorce apart from serious fights, are issues they ignored before because of love or that came up over time because they just grew and changed their behaviours, their wants in life, their beliefs etc. Sometimes people still appreciate each other as friends and companions in life, but it’s just not working as a romantic relationship and they divorce to gain that shot at a working romance again.

Reasons a couple would divorce on good terms

  • married very young and now have different wishes for their lives
  • new job aspirations that don’t work well with marriage or a family
  • different wants regarding children they didn’t discuss beforehand or that changed
  • habits they can no longer live with
  • problems with the in-laws, like irreparable issues with their partner’s children and they don’t want their partner to have to choose between a romantic relationship and their kids
  • realising they’re working as friends, but not enough in the relationship department to continue the marriage

I hope this helps you out and have fun!

Hello, I'm curious. Do you have any ideas on how the character interduce their love interest (or love interests if they have more then one partner) to their family?

Hi :)

Introducing partner(s) to family

  • one partner is cocky, saying the other’s parents will definitely love them, because everyone does, but they’re secretly scared that it will not be the case
  • the other partner sees their nervousness through their cockiness and assures them that their parents will love them, because they love them too
  • but when the moment comes they still grab their partner’s hand for comfort and security
  • when it’s more than one partner and the family doesn’t know beforehand it can be awkward
  • good thing that grandma’s there to congratulate her grandchild on exceeding expectations by securing more than one suitable partner
  • there will be an awkward talk later in private with the parents, but it’s fine after that
  • nervous at first they soon hit it off with the different family members
  • helping the dad with the barbecue, playing football with the younger cousins, trading stories with the grandparents, looking at photos of their partner as a child with the mom, and putting themself/themselves on dish washing duty
  • in the end they completely forgot why they were so nervous before - before they realise that that was just one family and there is still at least one left to meet

Have fun writing!
