Steps can help one to prepare adequately for divorce

It may be heartbreaking to have to say goodbye to a spouse through a divorce, but at times, not much can be done to stop a divorce from happening.

People usually don't enter a marriage expecting to end it a few years later. Unfortunately, sometimes divorce is the only solution for a marriage where both people cannot see eye-to-eye.
