What if my spouse doesn’t want to get divorced?

It takes two to marry, but only one to divorce. For the person who doesn’t want divorce, it may seem unfair that such an important decision can be made by only one person: “Shouldn’t I have a say in this?”

If the decision to get a divorce was only recently shared, the spouse may need time to process this information amidst a surge of pain, grief and disbelief, all the while hoping for another chance.
