If you have a good friend that are planning to have a divorce what will you do? A friend of you just came to you to ask you that she is planning to have a divorce with her partner because of the bad attitude of her husband. Could you recommend her to go on for a divorce just for a simple reason? What would you tell her?

I had a friend who was gonna divorce her husband because she was in love with another person, but was forced to marry this guy because of family issues. But in her case both the husband and the wife had mutually decided to take divorce. So all of us encouraged her to go for it. Bad attitude is not a very clear reason for being seperated..U need to talk to your friend and find out what the real problem is and then see if the problem can be solved. If it is a simple reason then ur friend definitely needs some counselling...

I think I would tell her to do what feels right for her. If she has made a mistake she should correct it. She only has one life and it would be a shame spending it with someone she no longer loves and respect. Noone deserves to go through life unhappy. But I would also tell her that good things needs to be worked at. My advice would be for her to tell her housband exactly what she thinks and feels. Good thing would also be to get some counselling before making the final decition. Leaving a marriage without working through the problems, exploring all the possibilites, is not a good thing. Unresolved issues will follow you to new realtionships.
