Letting go of anything is never easy, whether it’s letting go of a job (even when you’ve outgrown it) or letting go of the kids as they fly the nest. One of the hardest things to let go of – even if you know it’s the right thing to do – is a marriage.

It’s time to let go of the past and open your eyes to new possibilities with ‘How to See?’. Discover the path to clarity and self-discovery in this empowering journey.
Finding a family lawyer to help you to undo your marriage is also not always simple. You want to ensure that you find one that can help you to stay on your feet even after you’ve left the family house. If you’re not the one leaving, you’re still leaving behind a marriage and a commitment and it’s vital that you know what it looks like when it’s time to let go. Knowing when it’s time to divorce isn’t always easy but we’ve got some signs for you below:
Signs It’s Time to Let Go
- You tried. For most women especially, they will try for years before they eventually call time. It’s just that their spouse doesn’t notice that the time is now. You communicated your displeasure. You talked about the things that were burying you in sadness and nothing changed. You tried, you did counseling and you expressed your needs. And none of it was met. And yet here you are trying to determine whether it’s the right thing – it is.
- You got some therapy. Often, the biggest decision you have to make is whether you should seek counseling and therapy. If you do, you’re going to have a professional help you to walk out of your marriage. If you don’t, you may not see that you have your own things to work out. Faithfully seeing a marriage counselor is usually a last-chance saloon for most couples, and seeing a counselor is the chance you have to get in front of someone to air out your thoughts.
- You talked about it before. You’ve mentioned divorce and you’re now ready for it. You’re ready to put the wheels in motion because when one partner wants out, other thinks of another year of therapy and how it can help. You need to be clear and concise – it’s a good sign you’re ready to go.
- You’re educating yourself on your options. If you find yourself Googling divorces and what it takes, then it’s a good sign that you are ready to let go. You’ve identified the right divorce option for you, and you’ve taken the time to learn what you need to do to get out of your marriage in one piece.
If you are ready to see that it’s time to let go, you’ll be able to see it clear as day. You have to be willing to go ahead and make sure that your spouse also knows that it’s time to let go of the marriage. Speak to a third party to help you to negotiate this.
