You would be very surprised to learn that psychological problems plague
many divorcing couples today, and they don’t even know it. That
is until now! When you look at the complex issues that infect families
like verbal and physical abuse, paranoia, bipolar disorder, perpetual
lying, controlling behaviors and so on, it is no wonder that couples end
up in the offices of divorce attorneys.
But the average divorce attorney is not going to address the underlying
psychological issues as part of their legal strategy. Quite frankly, they
don’t care to nor do they have the knowledge or skills to do so.
Divorce is often the final straw in a battle that is raging in the imbalanced
dynamics of the marriage. As you know, mental and psychological issues
affect more than just the individual. Mental issues hurt and sometimes
destroy the entire family. That’s why these families need special,
skilled attention to obtain a divorce in a safe, strategic and psychologically
As a skilled divorce attorney and psychologically-trained medical professional,
I provide comfort, insight and remedies for couples struggling with the
difficulties of mental illness as they navigate their divorce.
Does your spouse exhibit the following:
- Grandiose sense of self-importance
- Lives in a fantasy world that supports their delusions of grandeur
- Needs constant praise and admiration
- Sense of entitlement
- Exploits others without guilt or shame
- Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, or belittles others
If you have answered “Yes” to some of the above, your marriage
is likely being sabotaged by the difficult and ugly effects of psychological
issues. The next step is to decide what to do about it.
Sometimes seeing a therapist can address and treat these issues for those
of you who would like to save your marriage. I always encourage couples
to take this path if their desire is to stay in their marriage. I believe
in supporting love and family whenever possible. Staying in the marriage,
if these issues exist, requires the support of skilled psychological guidance,
willing participants and in some cases medication to make a healthier
marriage possible. For those who have decided they cannot survive the
devastating effects of a spouse’s narcissistic behavior on a marriage,
I suggest they consider mediation.
