Seasonal affective disorder and divorce

Many different experiences and conditions can make it harder for people to split up with their spouse, whether they are concerned about the financial effects of ending their marriage, are struggling with a health condition, or do not believe that it is an appropriate time to divorce. However, those who suffer from seasonal affective disorder may experience additional hardships related to their divorce. For example, they may push off divorce because they feel as if they do not have the energy to work through the process or they might experience depression afterward.

If you have seasonal affective disorder, it is important to do what you can to minimize the negative aspects of this condition and try to prevent it from interfering with your divorce or making your life challenging in other ways. For example, you should try to maintain a positive outlook during the divorce process, as hard as that may be. Unfortunately, some people who suffer from SAD may find that the disorder interferes with their ability to present their case appropriately in court, discuss these matters with their children, or handle other divorce-related issues.

This disorder can make daily life tricky, let alone major life changes such as bringing your marriage to an end. However, you may be able to turn things more in your favor by focusing on the tasks at hand and trying to keep negative emotions in check. Our high net worth divorce section has more on end of marriage issues that many people encounter when they decide to file for divorce.
