Knowing when it's worth it to divorce

How do you know when it's worth getting a divorce. Worth here is a subjective term. Worth getting a divorce. Financially speaking is probably never worth getting a divorce. But emotionally speaking, and that's going to stay with your longer, it probably is worth getting a divorce if you have tried to fix the marriage, fixed the relationship, and not been able to. If you've exhausted your possibilities of working it out, then it is worth it to your partner and to your kids to try to get into a happier situation, which will probably not happen immediately. It will get worse before it gets better. But then it will be worth that turnaround in the relationship and within the family, emotional stability and adaptiveness of your kids.
