Most likely, you and your partner did not enter your relationship thinking that it would not survive. The dissonance between your view of how your relationship would develop and how it actually unfolded has likely caused you emotional pain, even if you initiated the dissolution of the relationship.

Indeed, making a significant change to a primary relationship can be overwhelming and emotionally draining. Addressing the emotional aspects of ending your relationship will enhance the clarity you need to make the financial decisions that result from the breakup or divorce.

Talking to unbiased listener can help to ease the burden of this challenging time. If you would like to talk with someone about the changes or feelings that you are experiencing, please seek support from the Employee Assistance Program. Professional counselors are available to assist you during this time.

As you part ways with your ex-partner, you will want to review how the dissolution of your relationship impacts your finances. Start with a thorough review of your finances so that you can make a plan for moving forward.
