Practical advice to help men get through a divorce

It's no secret that couples in California who are going through a split can experience a myriad of emotions. Without question, divorce impacts women and men differently. A difficult experience for a man may not necessarily be a stressful or difficult situation for a woman, and vice versa. According to stereotypes, women may need more emotional and financial support than men amid a divorce. However, men need just as much support as women during this tumultuous time.

For men going through a divorce, the top priority should be self-care. Mental, spiritual and physical health are the keys to a less stressful life during a split. Focus on things that are controllable, such as diet, sleep and exercise.

Try to let go of uncontrollable things, such as the expectations about an ex-spouse. In some cases, the other party may never let go of the circumstances that led to the divorce. They may continue to hold a grudge and may project hurtful emotions. Instead of retaliating, work to understand.

Seeking help or emotional support during this time is typically more difficult for men. Social stereotypes have pegged men as the tougher sex, but this is not always the case. Find a support group of men who are going through a similar experience.

Although men and women experience divorce differently, the end of a marriage is always a stressful and difficult situation for all parties involved. Men and women in California who have questions about any aspect of divorce could benefit by consulting a knowledgeable legal representative. An attorney experienced in family law can help individuals navigate through this experience.
