As a divorce attorney and psychologically trained mediator, I have spoken
with many sad, angry spouses over the last two years during the ongoing
pandemic. Being locked up together wreaked havoc on many marriages. Spouses
spoke up, acted out, and my phones rang!
Love doesn’t always last forever and the pressures of the pandemic
only accelerated the movement towards ending many unhappy marriages.
In the midst of the pandemic, there were psychological pressures to move
forward, walk away from unhappy, unhealthy, and in some cases, abusive
marriages. Spouses felt compelled to make changes, look forward and have
a better future.
COVID-19 only exacerbated the already dysfunctional, unbalanced, and miserable
marriages. It not only affected families financially but emotionally.
It forced many lifestyle changes, particularly when it came to divorce,
and it continues to do so.
I received a phone call 1 year ago from a spouse who was done with his
wife. He said he was in a very abusive relationship and couldn’t
endure it anymore. He was embarrassed to admit he was being abused. After
all, he was a man and who would believe he was being abused by his wife.
I told him I believed him because I have helped many men in abusive relationships.
The reality is men get abused too!
Since I am a highly experienced psychologically trained divorce attorney
and mediator, he started to explain all the ways he was being mistreated
by his wife. Financially he received an allowance from his wife even though
he was a successful massage therapist. She controlled all their income
Due to COVID-19, he had not worked in over a year. She had worked all during
the pandemic and ran a successful online clothing business. She had degraded
him verbally for many years and it had only increased during the pandemic.
She would verbally assault him in front of their 8-year-old twin boys.
She would call him a loser, say he was stupid, and tell their sons not
to grow up like him.
He decided he was not going to take the abuse anymore and we started a
divorce action. My litigation partner and I fought for him in court; we
got him a substantial financial settlement and joint custody of his twin
boys. He consulted with one of our team psychologists and started to regain
his self-esteem. He recently received his judgment of divorce and has
started a new happy life.
