It does not entail too many costs
Each party gets to preserve their authority concerning their future because they made the decisions themselves
They do not experience any judgment imposed by the court following trial because no trail was done

This set up is rather more convenient since there is lesser chance for hostility to develop, and the raising of the children becomes less stressful
