Is Divorce the Best Option in Arizona
In every marriage, there are marital problems that will come up to test a couple’s love, bond, responsibility, dedication and commitment to one another. If a couple is able to overcome all these tests with ease, then the marriage will grow stronger, and the relationship between the couple will no doubt pass the test of time.
However, if a couple is having extreme difficulty in passing through these tests then there could be a huge problem in the marriage. Often times, a great number of couples who encounter marital problems refuse to accept the fact that these marital ups and downs are simply tests that have the potential to bring the couple closer, and make their bond grow even stronger. For those couples who fail to see this fact, the end result is more often than not divorce.
Things to Consider About Divorce in Arizona
Before taking any drastic measures, couples should truly dig deep into their hearts and ask themselves the following questions: Is divorce truly the best option, or is it the easy way out? Is divorce the only answer, or is it just an escape from the realities of marriage? Here are a few useful tips that will help you determine whether divorce is the right option for you. When is divorce necessary?
1. Divorce is necessary if you and your spouse have disputes that are totally irreconcilable despite all effort to resolve them. Some disputes are so grave to the point that having the couple live under the same roof would cause more harm than good to the married couple.
2. Divorce is necessary if one of the parties committed a fraudulent act that compelled the other party to agree to get married. There are several incidents that may constitute fraud, and some of these incidents include: failure of one party to disclose to the other that he or she has a life-threatening sexually transmitted disease or some other contagious illnesses contracted before the marriage, failure to disclose that he or she had been married before and is not legally divorced, failure to disclose that he or she is a wanted felon or other criminal deceptions like that.
The failure to disclose such important information that would have allowed the other party to avoid the marriage had he or she knew the facts beforehand is definitely ground for divorce.
3. Divorce is also necessary if one of the parties commits any type of crime against his or her spouse or their children. Such crimes include domestic violence, rape, and molestation. This type of crime or behavior is totally unwarranted and definitely needs to be dealt with accordingly, not only through a divorce but through criminal prosecution too. In these types of situations, the guilty party has not only committed a crime against his or her spouse and family but also against society as a whole.
4. Divorce is the best option if one of the parties committed an adulterous relationship. Aside from the fact that the law itself allows divorce under these circumstances, it is every spouse’s right to enjoy his or her marriage free from the worry of having an unfaithful partner. These are some of the major reasons that would justify divorce. At the end of the day, no one should be forced to stay in a marriage that is a threat to their lives, or that brings them nothing but pain and heartache.
