When considering divorce, a major deciding factor is sometimes the amount of time that you get to spend with your children. After all, you only have approximately eighteen years together (more or less) – and after divorce, you might suddenly find that you’ve reduced your time by half (depending on your custody agreement). In my case, I knew that our quality of life would increase after the divorce was completed – but the quantity of time decreased.
Of late, I’ve been struggling with the amount of time I get to spend with the kids. It seems like I’m constantly taking them from place to place, or spending time on other things like homework – and not actually getting to spend any quality time with them. I’ve written a bit about this struggle today on DivorcedMoms.com.
