Divorce is so common that the chances are quite good that you already know someone who has ended their marriage. You may feel like you know how Texas handles divorces because of the stories you've heard from someone who has already been through it. Still, one person's version of events may not give you the whole story. Your second-hand experience of divorce could mean that you have a skewed perspective on what the process is actually like.
If someone you know went through an acrimonious, protracted divorce litigated in the courts, you may inaccurately believe that is the only avenue available. However, fighting with your ex in court isn't the only way to end your marriage. It is also possible for people to file an uncontested divorce where they work together amicably to dissolve their marriage.
