It is often the woman who finds herself in a financial quandary after divorce. She may not have a strong grasp of her current and future finances, and she may need to start generating income by returning to the workforce, as losing most of her partner’s income has substantially changed her financial landscape.
Women leave the workplace for many reasons when they become married:
- They were a professional before having children but left their career to be a stay-at-home mom
- The family may have moved due to her husband’s job relocating
- Her husband was the breadwinner and she did not financially need her job once they married
- She was unable to finish her education in her desired field due to pregnancy or marriage
Once the divorce process begins, many women feel embarrassed that while they were married, they put their career on the back burner.
They may also feel guilt for allowing their partner to handle all of the finances while they focused on marital responsibilities and childrearing, even though a division of labor in a marriage is normal and even efficient.
There is no reason a woman should feel guilty or embarrassed about her choices for her family!
