Many people avoid divorcing at all costs because they are scared of what their spouse will do during the process. While some couples try to work things out amicably, others plot revenge and put their spouse through hell. They use brutal tactics that delay the divorce, cause financial hardship and prevent the other spouse from seeing their children.
Why do people do this? Some people just have to win at everything, and their divorce is no exception. They engage in manipulation and other mind games so they can come out ahead. They’re willing to do what it takes to frustrate their spouse to the point where they simply give in to all the demands—even if it takes hundreds of thousands of dollars and takes several years to finalize the divorce. Read on to understand these tactics and what to do if you’re a victim.
Look for manipulative tactics and power plays from your spouse. If they happen, keep your cool. Don’t stoop to your spouse’s level and plan your own revenge. This will only make matters worse. Instead, think ahead and be positive. Keep your lawyer informed. They can tell you what to do next.
Divorces are difficult enough, so try to make things as easy and stress-free as possible. Avoid mean-spirited tactics that will delay the inevitable and cost you more in the long run.
