Relationships are complicated, no matter how much you love the other person. From husband wife and son and father to mother daughter and friends and co-workers, navigating relationships can be a challenge because we all are independent thinkers trying to come together and live life to the fullest. When relationships crumble, we are often left reeling, an emotional wreck and a pillar of hurt.

Petrelli Previtera’s Denver-area office has family lawyers that help people when their marriage relationships crumble. We help people with divorce, alimony, child support, child custody, and mediation. In our last blog post, we examined some tips on  how to handle the new family dynamics when your spouse remarries. Here, we’ll continue our series with more tips. Contact us today for a confidential divorce law and child support consultation!


Stay Busy

Distraction is one of the best coping mechanisms in existence, for any ailment you are suffering. Petrelli Previtera in Denver notes that when you are busy, you don’t have time to think about your ex, your hurt, or the other person they are marrying. Instead, get out more and do more. Throw yourself into your career. Do things for yourself, such as things you normally wouldn’t do. This includes a round of golf at the local club, a spa day with some friends, or a weekend in Vegas. On the day your spouse gets married, make sure you have something planned as well.

Life is Not a Competition

You may feel beat by the fact that your spouse got remarried before you did, and you may feel the need to rush into a relationship or accelerate the one you are in just to keep up. We all have an innate desire to be desired and wanted, and you may be craving the intimacy of a marriage that you had with your ex once again. However, Petrelli Previtera in Denver notes that you don’t want to rush into anything and make a big mistake simply because you feel the need to keep up with your ex. Talk to someone, and try to let go of these feelings.

Resolve to Not Cause Trouble

If you are still hurt from your divorce, you may be tempted to use this new situation to your advantage and make life difficult for your ex. Petrelli Previtera urges you to resist this temptation, especially if kids are involved. It does no good to cause trouble when your kids will most likely suffer from it as well. It’s best to maintain your distance from your ex, mutual friends, and even the in-laws. Having as little interactions as possible is the best way to avoid problems and to keep you moving forward and recovering, instead of dredging up past junk.
