The answer

People were asked about their divorce experiences in a 2004 study. Maybe you won’t be surprised to learn that 86% (nearly all of them) blamed their partner for causing the divorce. This is valuable information. You might be blaming your partner, but remember, it’s just as likely that your partner is blaming you. No wonder you might be having trouble working things out! Focusing on the reasons for divorce, on your anger, on blaming or finding fault with your partner, are very normal reactions. But if you get stuck there, you will have a really hard time trying to settle your differences and move on. I promise you that things will go better if you try to change your focus as you work your way through the process.
