Plan for seeing your ex with someone new

One of the most difficult things for some people is seeing their ex with someone new. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence after you go through a divorce. Deciding now how you will handle the situation can put you in a better position for dealing with it when it happens.

Don't allow your kids to play you against your ex

Children who are going through a divorce will often try to find ways to push the limits. This might include trying to play one parent against the other, so both adults must take steps to ensure this doesn't happen. Knowing some of the more common red flags that come with this situation might help you to avoid issues before they start.

You might not expect certain thoughts during a divorce

Going through a divorce brings up a lot of emotions and thoughts. Some people are surprised by the scope of these, especially when they wanted the divorce in the first place. Determining how to cope with the things that you are going to experience can be a challenge, but you will feel better once you have a plan in place and can move forward with your life.

Emotions during divorce can vary greatly

The decision to divorce usually isn't made overnight. Instead, it is something that at least one spouse has thought about for a long time before they took the step to file the paperwork. While the filing starts the legal process, there is an emotional process that has already begun.

Help your only child through your divorce

An only child spends a lot of time with their parents. If those parents divorce, the child might face some challenges that aren't present with those who have siblings. One of the most important things to remember when an only child is experiencing this is that the bond they form with their parents is critical. They will likely need open access to both parents so they can keep up with the need to feel close.

Obsessive involvement in online gaming can lead to divorce

Many digital worlds are designed to be a perfect experience. They offer users beautiful scenery or hyper-realistic graphics. People can also engage in activities and behaviors they would never dream of in the real world. From flying to fighting martial arts masters, video games can make the impossible a reality.
