Deliver the news responsibly

As Dr. Susan Alison explains in her essay for Divorce Magazine, it’s important to communicate your decision responsibly. Under normal circumstances, unless you’re in fear for your safety, it’s better to have the conversation face-to-face. In the event that an in-person conversation is impossible, your soon-to-be-ex is at least worthy of a phone call. Of course, you should be considerate of your partner’s whereabouts at the time of the call. For example, it’s best not to break up while they’re at work or in a public place.
