Why would you maintain civility with a soon-to-be ex-spouse?

The end of a marriage can be a very difficult time for any Californian. The life you thought you were beginning when you tied the knot did not work out, for whatever reason or reasons, and now you need to start over with a new life. Often, the soon-to-be ex-spouses have anger and resentment toward each other because of things that went wrong in the marriage. The arguments that come up as part of negotiating a divorce settlement can add to these negative feelings. However, it is usually a good idea to keep things civil in divorce negotiations. In many situations, you may have to continue to deal with your ex-spouse in some capacity long after the divorce is finalized. Lingering anger and resentment can make that a lot more difficult.
