Seasonal affective disorder and the end of marriage

After years of marriage, deciding to call the union off can be overwhelming for anyone, especially for those who have seasonal affective disorder and other hardships to work through. Unfortunately, some people may feel as if they are trapped or unable to take action due to the emotional difficulties they are facing as a result of SAD. If you have SAD and are planning on filing for divorce or believe that this disorder has left you in a more vulnerable position, it is essential to take a thorough look at your options and do what you can to keep the disorder from creating additional challenges in life. Sometimes, ending a marriage is not only necessary, but empowering and helpful for those who need to move forward with their lives.

During the darker months, seasonal affective disorder may cause some people to feel lethargic or sad, which can be a problem when it comes to handling divorce issues. If you have kids, or expect to find yourself in a contentious dispute for some other reason, it is important to do your best to prevent this disorder from causing you additional and unnecessary stress or getting in the way of your case.

For some people, bringing an end to a marriage that is not working out can have positive emotional effects, which could be helpful for some who suffer from SAD. Every case has unique attributes and must be approached on an individualized basis, but those with SAD should not feel helpless. The divorce part of our site has more on family law topics.
