What to do if your spouse doesn’t want to divorce

Should you find yourself in this predicament, there are several options available to you:

  • Proceed anyway: For example, you can file for divorce on a variety of at-fault grounds. This includes everything from adultery to abuse. You don’t need the permission of your spouse to file for divorce. 
  • Give your marriage another try: Maybe you’re okay with the idea of trying to work things out one more time. You’ve spoken to your spouse and realize that they’re ready to change. It may not work out, but there’s nothing wrong with seeing where things go in the near future. 
  • Discuss your concerns: It’s not required, but it’s a good idea to discuss your feelings and concerns with your spouse. Don’t just tell them that you want a divorce. Tell them why. Also, explain why you think your marriage won’t work in the future.
