What is a successful divorce?
A successful divorce means different things to different people. To some people, it means that they beat the system and hid assets so they received more assets in the property division. To others, it means that they made their spouse suffer during the divorce process. For some people, it means that they spent as little money as possible on the divorce process. I think that a successful divorce should be measured by the success of lives after the divorce is over. Children should grow up to lead "normal" lives with healthy relationships with both parents. Parents should be able to lead individual lives without facing financial ruin. In an ideal world, divorced parents should be able to communicate with each other for the benefit of children. Success should be measured by long term results and not by the immediate results of a divorce.
