divorceDivorce is difficult at any age. Whether you are still newlyweds or have seen your marriage through the decades, deciding to call it quits can be the hardest decision a person faces. However, it seems that getting divorced in your thirties is among the worst times to get divorced for those going through it and in some ways, they are correct in their feeling.

Compared to the decade of life prior, those in their 30s often have a family but their children are not grown. This means they have younger children or slightly older children with a lot of questions and a lot of impact that they will soon face. Unlike couples in their older years, the kids cannot be as easily spared from the ramifications. After all, if your child is a teenager or older, there are only logistics that will be affected as compared to their childhood.

Additionally, those in their 20s either don’t yet have children or have young children. The much younger children are often much easier to transition through the process as they haven’t lived with both parents quite as long. Additionally, they haven’t yet set the same amount of habits nor are they are in the routine for family traditions. This makes it easier to reset and start anew. After all, if you only have had one or two Christmases that you will likely forget with both parents, having a new tradition with one and then the other is not quite as challenging.

Even further, those in their 30s have their own habits established. When you divorce in your 20s, there are plenty of single people and your life has not yet fallen into a routine. Once you hit 30, you have become used to a certain way of living. Upsetting that way of living can be challenging at best and can lead to a lost sense of self at worst. But there are times when divorce at this age is not avoidable.

When this is the case, be sure to identify separate assets to ensure you can restart your life with what you have. Further, be sure to set a budget before the divorce is finalized to better transition into your new life. When possible, look into paying off all debts so both spouses can leave and start a new life rather than deal with the one that ended.
