How does one get the courage to divorce their spouse?
I would suggest first writing a list of reasons why you want to divorce your spouse. If you can, also write a list of why you married him/her in the first place...that is if you can still remember, hopefully you can. I am a big list person, it helps me to see things more clearly. By all means do not let your spouse see your list. It should be personal and honest.   If you are even contemplating divorce there must be a reason for it.  Focus on the reason and hopefully this will give you the strength you nned.   Courage comes in many ways, family and friends can be wonderful support when you are going ...
