Family Mediator Minneapolis/St. PaulDivorce is considered among the most difficult experiences we can go through. It is the consequence of the broken promise of the fairy tales we tell ourselves about everlasting love and spending eternity with our soul mates. That is not at all to say that marriage is bad or should not be entered into. Instead, it is to say that marriage must be taken back from the fairy tales and given back to the realities of modern life. If we can accomplish that, maybe we can also find a way to better balance the difficulties that befall all of us periodically, so that our marriages prove to be more resilient, and based on feasible outcomes with the kind of hope that approximates fairy tales, but is still based in reality. We can have both the promise of the fairy tale with the resiliency of basing our marriages in reality.

Changing Your Approach To Divorce

When a marriage ends, most of us enter the divorce process with an adversarial snarl. The broken promises of our fairy tales are often blamed on our spouses, and our unwillingness to see our own degree of responsibility heightens those feelings, which in turn produce an unproductive adversarial approach. In the moment, we are likely convinced of the absolute rightness of our positions. We become unyielding and resentful, angry and resolute. If that in any way describes you or your experience in divorce, you know what it makes you? It makes you human.

The heightened feelings associated with marriage and divorce make finding reasonableness in dissolving a marriage very difficult, and occasionally impossible, to achieve. AMS Mediation can help you guide you through this process, focusing on your priorities, your feelings and your needs and finding that common ground with your ex-spouse that will position you for a more positive next phase of your relationship.
