Divorce happens when the give and take ups and goes

People get into relationships with all sorts of preconceived notions. The honeymoon phase doesn't last forever and if couples in Canada don't work on their marriages or partnerships, they may soon be heading for splitsville and ultimately a divorce. So, instead of giving each other the cold shoulder, couples might realize that there may be times when they expect too much from the mate and honest communication may be the way to remedy that issue.

The end of a marriage can bring out the worst in people. No couple in Canada ever marries with divorce in mind, but when situations change and life gets tough, some fences can't be mended.

When a couple calls it quits today, it's not the end of the world. Gone is the stigma divorce carried in the mid-20th century in Canada. In fact, many conscious uncouplings today are done with the spouses remaining good friends for the sake of each other and for their children. Individuals are celebrating rather than hibernating after what used to be considered a catastrophic life event.

Many marriages in Canada end in divorce at the start of the year

January is the month for new beginnings and, apparently, for endings. The first month of the year seems to be the month when many marriages in Canada come to an end, or at least the month when people think about separating or divorcing. In fact, January has become known as the divorce month.
