So many women ask me how do they know when it’s time to end their marriage. I wish I could tell them a definite answer but there isn’t one. Surprisingly it isn’t some major blowup that is the deciding factor to leave. There isn’t a big neon sign that flashes and says abort now. In most cases it’s an accumulation of a bunch of little things. For women, deciding to divorce is not an impulse decision. On average, most women have been thinking about it for 4 years.
I'm joined in this episode by Anna Durstein, partner and attorney at Florida Women's Law Group.
We will talk about:
What if there isn't anything specifically wrong, you're just not fulfilled?
How marriages and couples change over time.
What about the children?
Why women wait so long when they are unhappy.
Being the wife and the primary income generator is a new dynamic in marriages these days. It is not uncommon for a wife to work but when she is bringing in more than 60% of the income, she is considered the breadwinner. The implications of divorce will be very different for the wife who is the breadwinner than other wives. There is more preparation that must be made and there is potential for her to have to pay alimony and/or child support.
This episode covers:
Whether you are a business owner, entrepreneur, corporate executive, lawyer
physician the first step is to get an accurate picture of your finances.
· If you are the higher earner you may have to pay alimony for a specified period of time.
· A post-nup can be beneficial for the high earning woman.
· Do your due diligence and educate yourself before telling your husband.
Deciding to divorce is a difficult decision. It's especially difficult for the woman who stays home and raises the children. She's given up her career, education and earning potential to be the provider at home. Sacrificing her ambitions to support those of her husband.
The stay-at-home mom worries about how she will pay for the divorce, support herself and her children, retirement, and where she will live, all without access to money. This fear of the unknown can keep women in unhappy marriages. There are things you can do to prepare and help take control of the situation.

Initial steps to take to prepare for divorce
