PTSD, personality changes and divorce

On Behalf of | Aug 31, 2019 | divorce and family law |

The divorce process may be initiated for many reasons, whether a married couple has lost interest in each other or financial pressure has placed too much strain on a relationship. Some marriages fall apart because of the ways in which a spouse has changed. For example, someone may fall out of love with their spouse due to changes in their personality, and some people who have post-traumatic stress disorder (as well as their partners) have found themselves in this position. If you have PTSD or are married to someone who is struggling with this condition, it is important to approach divorce carefully if you are convinced that such a move is necessary.

There are many reasons why PTSD can lead to the breakdown of a marriage. For example, someone who has PTSD may become irritable, angry and more difficult for their partner to be around. Sometimes, couples are able to work through these issues thanks to counseling, while others may come to the conclusion that their marriage cannot be saved. There are various ways in which personalities can change due to PTSD, and some of these unpleasant changes have led to many divorces.

Aside from PTSD, there are many other mental issues which can cause a marriage to fail. For example, someone who is struggling with depression or substance abuse may find themselves in the middle of a divorce (which can make things even tough, in some cases). If you know that divorce is unavoidable, make sure you approach your case properly and have a strong understanding of your legal options.
