Items not worth fighting over in a divorce

It is possible to divorce without lawyers; a lot of people have done it over the years. You just need to be mindful about what you want to fight over. 

In a divorce, there are things you should fight to retain. If there is a vast income discrepancy between you and your ex, then you should receive some alimony, at least, for a little while. You also deserve to fight over the well-being of your children. However, you need to keep things in perspective. A lot of people drag out their divorces unnecessarily because they want something they do not need. Here are some items you should not waste time arguing over during a separation.

Things that clearly belong to the other spouse

Many divorces become drawn out because one or both spouses want to be vindictive. They want to really stick it to their ex, so they try to gain ownership over absolutely everything. That includes items that belonged to one spouse prior to the marriage. There is never any reason to slow down the process by being vengeful. There is both separate and marital property; your focus should be on marital belongings.

Wedding photos

Wedding pictures are sentimental. Some people want to keep theirs while others want the wedding photo album to burn later. The important thing to keep in mind here is that you can print out more photos. It is easier than ever, and you likely already have these photos stored in the cloud. 

Tools, appliances and other equipment

Most of these items are not too expensive. You may really want that food processor, but you can always buy another one later if your ex ends up with it. The same holds true for furniture and rugs. Everything is replaceable. A mediator will help you determine a fair distribution of assets, so you do not have to worry about losing out on valuable possessions.
