Research indicates that men are especially affected by divorce

Dissolving a marriage is one of the most life-altering events a person in New York can experience. According to new research, divorce affects both men and women emotionally; however, it has a particularly major effect on men. Here is a glimpse at why divorce has such a profound impact on men.

First, many men define themselves by their marriages. As a result, they become lost when going through the process of divorce because they may feel that their identities are crumbling. In this situation, it may be beneficial for men to get involved in new organizations or activities. In fact, a group where men can get together and share advice with one another as they go through difficult times can be especially helpful.

Second, men going through divorce oftentimes do not allow themselves to grieve appropriately over the marital breakup. Instead, they bottle up their feelings. Simply talking to a marriage counselor can help a divorcing man to express how he is feeling and thus reduce his chances of suffering from depression or even physical problems such as hypertension.

Even though divorce can be a challenging experience, two spouses going through it may be able to make the process easier by working to resolve their divorce-related issues at the negotiation table or through mediation rather than through traditional divorce litigation. However, if they cannot reach an agreement on issues such as property division outside of court, they have no choice but to proceed to trial to have a judge determine how to handle these issues. Either way, an attorney in New York can help a divorcing spouse to pursue the most personally favorable outcome given the circumstances surrounding the divorce.
