As a psychologist and family mediator, I work with many clients who are either anticipating or actually going through the separation process. Although there is less of a social stigma attached to divorce now, compared to even twenty years ago, most separating parents still agonize over the decision, particularly with respect to how that outcome will impact them and their children financially and emotionally.
These concerns are understandable, as adjustments need to be made post-separation.
The reasons for the breakdown of the marriage differ from couple to couple. In turn, how parents handle the separation and their own emotions about it has a direct impact on how the children will adjust too.
