Getting a Colorado divorce while pregnant

There is one thing that most Colorado wives might agree on, and that is the unmistakable glow of an expectant mother. It seems that almost everyone loves babies. However, the discussion of divorce can dim that glow. One question that might be raised by some expectant mothers is how to deal with a divorce while pregnant.

One woman has given her insight to this question and has some helpful tips from her own experience. This woman's husband made the difficult decision to divorce her after he discovered that she had cheated on him. The woman was unaware that she was pregnant with her soon-to-be ex-husband's child at the time. The first step was to acknowledge that the future might seem uncertain and scary, which is perfectly normal.

In such a circumstance, it could be helpful to be thankful that the child was not old enough to remember the divorce process, since older children often witness the stress that their parents go through. In this case, the new child may never know the difference of not having the father around on a full-time basis. There is nothing wrong with being a single parent; however, it is important to remember that time does heal all wounds of divorce. Staying married for the "sake of the children" could do more harm than good.

There may never be a right or perfect time to file for divorce. It may feel like an even worse time when the wife is pregnant. However, divorce may be just what the doctor ordered in making a clean break and starting a new life. Colorado couples want to do what is best for their children in the long run, and sometimes that means not being together anymore.
