While we would all appreciate if every divorce could be handled amicably and outside of court, that just isn't a reality. This is especially true when there is a power imbalance between the two spouses. As a matter of fact, CNBC recently featured an interesting article on going through a divorce with a bully.
Unfortunately, the article stated that divorce can be more like a game to a controlling spouse who is on a power trip. That means the spouse may prioritize winning no matter what the costs may be -- financial or otherwise. For these reasons, it's important for the non-dominating spouse to be just as prepared to go to battle.
