Cupid’s Advice:

Divorce is difficult, but if you can meet each other halfway, it can be made a little easier.  Cupid has some tips on how to compromise:

1. Think about the kids: For your children’s sake, try to find some middle ground.  Try to come to a custody agreement sooner rather than later to spare your kids some heartache.

2. Remember: There can be a lot of hostility during a divorce, but if you remember you were in love once, maybe you’ll be easier on each other.

3. Take the high road: As much as you want to stand your ground and fight to the bitter end, don’t.  Consider solutions that work for everyone, not just yourself.
