7 Reasons Why Divorce Is Better Than a Bad Marriage
When we get married, we feel absolutely sure that we’ve finally managed to find “the one.” But, sadly, statistics show much different results — about one in 4 marriages ends up in divorce. And even if sometimes it’s really difficult to admit that your “happily ever after” just isn’t working, you shouldn’t get upset, because there are plenty of good things that a divorce can bring into your life.
MBB found out 7 reasons why it’s better to walk away, than to stay in an unhealthy marriage.
1. You’ll have a better chance to meet “the right one.”
When you’re married, you unconsciously try to stay away from the opposite sex, in order to not make your partner jealous. This way, you miss out on a lot of opportunities and great people you can make friends with. This is not a bad thing when you’re happily married. But if you feel that your marriage has become suffocating, a divorce can help you clear the way to meet the right partner in the future.
After an unsuccessful marriage, you have a lot of experience that can open the door for you to fall in love again and find the right person to spend the rest of your life with. In fact, some studies show that people who remarry are less likely to get divorced because this time you know yourself better and you’re sure of what you’re looking for in your significant other.
2. You can devote your energy to your own personal growth.
If you stay in an unhealthy marriage for a long time, your emotional well-being is always at stake. This numbing pain can give you the feeling that you’ve started to lose yourself.
Do you remember your old hobbies or the things that used to bring you pleasure a long time ago? Does your spouse support your decisions and worldview? Do you enjoy your life at the moment? If your answers are “no,” perhaps it’s time to make some changes in your personal life.
It turns out that a bad marriage may keep you from doing the things in life that you want to do or having the things in life that you deserve. So after a divorce, you can finally stop putting all of your energy into a relationship that no longer works and use it for other important areas of your life.
