As many Texas residents may be aware, the role of pets in a family is very important.

Imagine you and your spouse, after many years of happiness, suddenly come upon a rough patch in your marriage. This happens to many couples at some point in their marriage, may they be in San Antonio or somewhere else in Texas (or, really, anywhere in the country). Some couples are able to work it out; others are not, and they begin to consider the ramifications of filing for divorce.
