Did Hilary Duff resolve to do her divorce right in the New Year?

Perhaps somewhat unsurprisingly, the start of the New Year is one of the busiest times for divorce around the country. People resolve to change their ways and increase their quality of living – but for some, the best way to fast-track their way to a happier and more fulfilling life is to cast off any lingering ties that they may have with a spouse from whom they have grown apart.

The trend is popular even among the rich and famous. Take, for example, the recent decision between Hilary Duff and her soon-to-be ex-husband Mike Comrie. The two decided to separate recently, but are determined to raise their child in a healthy environment despite the split. While some celebrity divorces can seem rash or dramatic, Duff and Comrie seem to have level-headedly decided to take the time to figure things out, setting an example for other divorcing couples in the process.

If one of your New Year’s resolutions happens to be cutting ties with your spouse, it’s important not to be impulsive. Rushing the process could ultimately end up working against you, and in situations of high-asset divorce like Duff’s, careful deliberation may be even more crucial. Not taking time to evaluate the financial situation of both yourself and your spouse could complicate the divorce proceedings.

New beginnings often involve the end of former constants in your life. For some people, that means taking the steps to get divorced. If you are unable to find happiness in your marriage, remember that while taking the initiative to divorce is a brave step forward, being unprepared is a surefire recipe for trouble.
