There are too many people out there who want to leave their spouse, but choose not to due to children or just the fear of what will happen. The first thing you need to overcome when deciding to get divorced is the fear. The biggest deciding factor is to look at your life. If you feel like you have changed yourself in uncomfortable ways, then it is probably time. Once you are aware you need to leave and still can’t leave, you need to determine what is holding you back. Only then can you move forward.
