How does it feel to file for divorce when your spouse doesn’t know it’s coming?

Assuming that your question implies that the ignorant spouse has no reason to believe that there is anything wrong with the marriage and thus no reason to fear the other spouse would have any cause to file for divorce, learning that your spouse has filed for divorce is like a hard kick to the gut with a steel-toed boot.

It’s shocking, staggering, heartwrenching, terrifying, infuriating, and depressing.

Unless notifying your spouse in advance that you intend to seek a divorce puts you at risk of your spouse or others physically hurting you or taking advantage of you unfairly, one of the most indecent things you could do is have your spouse served with a divorce complaint without telling him or her in advance what’s coming.
