The Huffington Post has come up with a number of things people would do differently if they had a chance to secure a divorce early in their marriage.
Some would go much farther back and divorce sooner for losing all those years in the relationship turmoil.
While some would not have agreed to a 50/50 split on expenditures for kids, others would take half of everything, and wouldn't have moved out of the house until it was theirs to claim.
Despite giving their exes too many chances, some failed to file their papers sooner.
Attorneys were also to be blamed, as they prolong the process.
It probably may not be due to ineffective assistance of counsel, but it surely adds another layer of communication that is often inept and costly.
Attorneys also do take advantage to cash in on the situation.
Some wish they would have been much harsher up front and gotten softer over the years.
Meanwhile, others regret they had not been in such a hurry to get a divorce.
Lack of communication does lead to cracks in the relationship, which makes some regret for not trying harder to save their marriage.
