Marriage can be an extremely beautiful and fulfilling enterprise. However, if you marry an abusive, high-conflict person, it can become a living nightmare. High-conflict divorce is a needlessly excruciating process that leaves many men and women swearing, “Never again.”
Marriage as an institution isn’t necessarily bad. However, dissolving a marriage is a rigged game in which many men are forced to accept highly inequitable and unjust losses. In other words, is marriage the problem or is it the divorce racket?
If you’re not married, what questions do you have about marriage? What are your concerns? What are your fears?
If you’re already married and/or divorced, what do you wish someone would have told you before you said, “I do?”
Did you have doubts before you married? Did you know you were making a mistake? Why did you go through with it?
For those of you who have married and divorced and remarried, what lessons did you learn from your first marriage? Did you use these lessons to make a better choice the second (or third) time around? What advice would you offer men and women who are struggling to end an abusive marriage with a high-conflict spouse?
