Restraining orders serve as a form of protection for you

Leaving a relationship, especially one that is a long-term relationship, isn't ever easy. You might continue to hold out hope that the person will change for the better so that any issues are dissolved. While this isn't impossible, it is probably unlikely. If the issue that is plaguing your relationship is abuse, you might be putting yourself in danger by staying in the relationship.

Carefully consider the points in a prenuptial agreement

Prenuptial agreements are something that many engaged couples overlook simply because of the perceived "ick" factor that comes to mind. These individuals don't want to think about the end of the marriage before the marriage begins. Even if you fall into this mode of thinking, you should still consider a prenup if you have assets or debts coming into the marriage.

Know your options when you are surprised by divorce

Going through a divorce isn't easy, especially if you didn't have any idea that your ex was going to end the marriage. If you are in this position, you might need a crash course in getting a divorce. The first thing that you should know is that your focus should be on rebuilding your life. It is easy to fall into thinking that you should get even with your ex, but this might make you miserable and take away too much of your energy. Instead, focus on yourself and let your ex deal with the consequences of ending the marriage.
