Divorce in Texas at a young age is difficult but doable

If you get married early in Texas and get a divorce right away, it can be jarring. Not only are you feeling ashamed because you were a part of a failed marriage, but the divorce process itself can be really nasty. Instead of looking for a new home and eagerly awaiting building a family, you end up alone and maybe demoralized.

One young woman got married when she was almost out of college, at the age of 22. There was very little support from her family, but her husband's family thought it was a great idea. It seemed like if they could get over the one-year mark, things would get better. They were both in nursing school, and that was a stressor in itself. Instead of getting better after one year, things got worse.

One of the unfortunate things about rushing to get married is that you don't give yourself enough time to get to know your soon-to-be partner. The young lady who married at 22 felt she had to hide who her husband was from her family. They were too different to sustain the marriage. She ended up admitting to her family and friends that her marriage was ending.

They came to her with support and love and even shared their own divorce stories with her. She is still friends with her ex-husband and says she loves him and looks back fondly at their shared memories.

She is much wiser now because not only did she get support from her friends and her family, she got an experienced professional who was able to guide her through the sometimes confusing divorce law in Texas. She now sees the end of her marriage as a new beginning.
