I’m The One Who Filed For Divorce, But I Still Have Loving Feelings Toward My Spouse And Feel Sad About Divorcing. Does This Mean I Should Dismiss My Divorce?
Strong feelings of caring about your spouse often persist after a divorce is filed. Whether or not to proceed with a divorce is a deeply personal decision. Although feelings can inform us of our thoughts, sometimes they can also cause us to not look at everything there is to see in our situation.
Have you and your spouse participated in marriage counseling? Has your spouse refused to seek treatment for an addiction? Are you worried about the safety of you or your children if you remain in the marriage? Can you envision yourself as financially secure if you remain in this marriage? Is your spouse involved in another relationship?
The answers to these questions can help you get clear about whether to consider reconciliation. Talk to your therapist, coach, or spiritual advisor to help determine the right path for you.
