Getting divorced can offer you a fresh start on your life. This is especially true if you were dedicated to playing the role of homemaker throughout the duration of your marriage. If this is the case, then perhaps you placed the needs of your family above some of your own ambitions. But now, you may have the chance to pursue the opportunities that you had previously put on the shelf.
However, establishing your own identity outside of the home is a challenge. This is especially true if you need to develop new skills or polish up the skills you have to become part of the workforce. And the fact is, going back to school or seeking job training costs money. For this reason, you may wish to consider requesting spousal support.
Having money coming in to help pay for your living and educational expenses could provide the bridge you need between your old life and your new one. And the process of becoming a happy, independent person can be sped up simply by having the funds that allow you to focus on personal development.
