After seven years of marriage, Heidi Klum is filing for divorce from her soon-to-be ex-husband Seal. The couple had three children together and was raising a fourth child from Klum's previous relationship.
It seems that the reason for the split is because Seal can have episodes of anger that he is unable to control, according to those who know the couple well. The source said Klum was worried about the effect these incidents would have on her children, and decided it was time for a divorce.
Anger issues can preempt episodes of domestic violence, and they can forever change the family dynamics at play in a household. Domestic violence does not seem to be the case here, but it is important to protect yourself if your partner becomes angry or abusive. If their behavior becomes extreme enough, legal action can be taken to preserve your livelihood and remain safe.
Klum and Seal had a seemingly happy marriage based on how they appeared in public. Sometimes, though, a marriage is not as great as it may appear, and it sounds like Klum hit a breaking point with Seal and his temper.
The issues that lead to the end of many relationships differ based on the situation, and there are a variety of factors that can affect an individual's opinion of their partner. Inflexibility, lack of cleanliness, disorganization, adultery - these are just a few examples of issues that can bring a relationship or marriage to an end.
In the end, you have to do what is in the best interest of you and your family. If the relationship you once had with your partner or spouse has irrevocably changed, filing for divorce may be your best option.
It is not an easy decision to come to, but there are legal professionals with experience in divorce law to answer any questions you may have and to help you through the process. Divorce can be a difficult time, so consult an attorney to support you during this emotional time.
