More commonly though, the term is used to describe the divorce process where both parties want the divorce but can't agree on issues like child custody, child and spousal support and equal distribution of the marital assets.

You need to talk to a divorce attorney and began divorce proceedings in accordance with your state's laws. Keep in mind, though, that mediation and counseling are far preferable to a divorce through the court system.

Only you can make that decision. However, the mere fact that you are asking this question indicates to me that something within the relationship is not right. I would think this though very carefully before you commit to a relationship that will either wind up in divorce, or cause a life-time of regrets.
