Before a marriage ends it is always helpful for individuals to learn how to create boundaries with their soon to be ex-spouse. Divorce is difficult and it is hard for many couples to not to hurt each other. However, if proper boundaries are set divorce can be a little easier. Such boundaries might include: no sex, spending less time interacting, discussing only issues that relate with finances or children. Sometimes the partner who wants the divorce will send mixed messages such as wanting warmth and affection, but once they have got what they wanted they emotionally cut-off again. This sends mixed messages. That is why boundaries are important. If you are divorcing consider what boundaries are important for you to develop.
