Long Island Divorce Attorney

Why you should leave a toxic marriage.

Everyone enters marriage with the expectation that it will last forever. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case and hundreds of thousands of marriages end in divorce each year. There are several things that can break down a marriage- whether it be infidelity, lack of communication, lack of intimacy, money problems, or constant arguing. Staying in a broken marriage isn’t healthy for either of you. The stress and anxiety that come with a toxic marriage could negatively impact your physical and mental health and could affect your everyday life and relationships.

Trying to make a toxic marriage work can have negative effects on your body. The risk of heart disease, depression, and even cancer could increase the longer you stay in a volatile marriage. The immune system tends to not work as well in times of extreme stress, leaving the body more vulnerable to infectious diseases. Living in the same house won’t give you the opportunity to have time to yourself to manage the stress, and constant fighting can wear on your mind and body. For your own health, you should seek divorce consultation and begin to take the necessary steps towards a new life.

The difficulty doesn’t end once you’ve made the decision to have a divorce. The process can drag on for months, even years, as spouses battle over children, property, and money. About 30-40 percent of people undergoing a divorce have a significant increase in symptoms of depression and anxiety. This shocking statistic makes finding the right divorce lawyer critical.
