Giving divorce news to children can be heartbreaking. But as difficult as that is likely to be, it's important that both parents in Connecticut to share the burden together even if they find it nearly impossible to be in the same room with each other. Having both parents tell them about the divorce is what's best for the children. Telling them plainly and simply and without malice so they will understand is the best bet.

Divorce in Connecticut: How to break it to a spouse

Gone are the days when one partner in a marriage had to ask the other for a divorce. That's not to say it's always easy to tell a spouse it's over. If the marriage has been overtly sad and bad for some time, bringing up divorce may not be such a surprise. But if spouses in Connecticut have been living in a state of indifference or apathy, it may be more difficult to broach the subject.

If one spouse wants to sell the home, perhaps the other could buy him or her out.
