More excellent advice from Nancy Hudgins, this time, at Real Divorce Mediation:
Inevitably, one person in a relationship reaches the decision to divorce first. He or she has given it a lot of thought before approaching the other spouse or partner. So when the subject is broached, the initiator is psychologically ahead. Unless you are in an abusive relationship, if you are the initiator, try to be compassionate about this. Give your spouse/partner the space to catch up.
