Divorce and Mental Illness in South Dakota

Among other things, untreated mental illness can ruin marriages. Before deciding to get a divorce, I recommend talking to your doctor about treating mental illness/addiction if you suspect those issues underlie your marital problems. Of course, some circumstances dictate divorce regardless of whether you or your spouse get help. You cannot control what your spouse does. If you struggle with mental health/addiction, however, and the writing is on the wall for your marriage, please keep in mind that you cannot fully contribute to your case if you are unwell.
