Spiritual divorce is an alternative solution for handling marriage problems.
Different options exist to guide relationships through their troubles and some answers aren’t obvious at all. One option I have created for my clients is Spiritual Divorce. This process has an amazing success rate for repairing friendships when they have reached a point of breaking.
What is a Spiritual Divorce?
On a high level, it’s about assisting a graceful separation between two people. How to teach two people to retain a friendship while taking time to grow.
Spiritual Divorce actually means two different things. The first definition is to approach a legal divorce with spiritual grace. To grow from the process rather than to fight and diminish in the breaking of divorce.
I actually use the term Spiritual Divorce in a different manner: Don’t start with a legal divorce rather start with a more gentle spiritual divorce.
The Problem with Legal Divorce
Other than dealing with death, divorce is the most stressful moment a person can face in life. After all how do you untangle two people who have spent years interweaving their lives together?
Legal divorce is for two people that cannot come to terms with their combine lives and require an outside baseline to physically separate them. The problem is legal divorce is very arbitrary, doesn’t take into consideration emotional aspects of life and in reality further rips people apart. It isn’t graceful.
