Divorce is typically seen as a bad thing. We do not know of any of our Oklahoma divorce clients who married with the intention of obtaining a divorce. We know divorce can have harmful psychological effects on children. Nevertheless, let us step back a moment, and examine what we mean when we say, "divorce is bad."
It is not the legal document that separates a former couple that is harmful. It is just a piece of paper. A divorce becomes necessary when two people can no longer live together. Sometimes, they have grown apart and recognize they have little in common, and while not enemies, they no longer see the point of "pretending" to be married.
