Wondering about the odds that you'll get a divorce? Just look at where you keep your money.
You have probably heard that education has an impact on divorce, making it more or less likely. Specifically, studies have found that people with a higher level of education -- college graduates -- tend to get divorced less often than those who do not finish college or who never attend.
There are no set reasons for a divorce unless one part of the couple wants to get a divorce. And when it comes to wants, no one really needs a reason. We're all adults and we can choose to live our lives in a way that supports our happiness -- regardless of any explanations or logic. With all this being said, however, there are certain "reasons" that divorce attorneys hear again and again from their clients. Here are three of the most common:
If you have a traditional family in which one spouse earns the majority of the money, and the other spouse takes care of the house, children and home, the prospect of getting a divorce could be terrifying. What will happen to you after you leave the individual who is the so-called "breadwinner" of the family? Fortunately, if you've been married for a reasonable amount of time, you might be able to receive alimony payments from your soon-to-be ex.
In the beginning of a healthy love relationship, two spouses usually have deep levels of emotional engagement and intimacy. This is usually accompanied by lots of physical affection, like touching, hugging, kissing and other physical intimacies that spouses are supposed to enjoy. However, in the case of a marital breakdown, one signal that the relationship is in serious trouble happens when there is a withdrawal of affection -- which is also referred to as "emotional withholding."
Drug abuse can create a problem for your marriage -- and, if you know what's good for you, it will probably bring your marriage to an end. Nevertheless, it takes time for spouses to realize that the addicted spouse isn't going to change. Yes, miracles do happen, but unless the addicted spouse has the strength to overcome the addiction, things are going to remain miserable for the sober spouse until he or she decides that enough is enough.
After a divorce, you might wish to relocate to start fresh. Once your divorce is settled, this is a good plan. However, it's normally not a great idea if your divorce is still in progress.
Getting a divorce in Florida might seem like it's the same as any other state, but the reality is that every state treats divorce differently. Florida sees divorces as having no faults. That means that neither party is responsible. Florida names divorce a "dissolution of marriage," and you only have to say that your marriage is irretrievably broken to get a divorce.
With a divorce, emotions are high and the stakes can be even higher. Depending on the situation, the couple may have many things to divide or only a few expensive assets. Regardless of the kind of divorce this is, it's always important that the client receives the best possible settlement.
