Are you feeling guilty because you want a divorce and leave your long-term marriage? You’re not alone! The guilt you feel when leaving someone who is not a “bad person” but you know that “you don’t want to live like this the rest of your life” can be overwhelming! You feel like something must be wrong with you, because nothing horrible is wrong with your marriage, but “you just can’t go on like this” any more.

Paige offers her perspective on making the decision to leave a long-term relationship and dealing with guilt.
