For many people, their wedding day is the happiest and most important day in their life. Some look forward to their wedding for years, even before they meet their eventual spouse, and they meticulously plan the event to perfection, sparing no expense to make sure that it is everything they dreamed it would be. While having a lavish wedding could be the spectacular beginning that your marriage deserves, a new study suggests that it could also be the first nail in the coffin of your divorce.
One of the most widely utilized areas of family law is of course divorce, and there are few issues of divorce that are more hotly contested than child support. Child support dictates how much money a non-custodial parent is required to pay in order to provide financial assistance to the child and the custodial parent who is raising the child. While many factors go into determining a child support amount that is fair to both parties, money does strange things to people, and it is not uncommon that neither party is happy with the child support agreement.
The decision to divorce is something that no couple takes lightly, because they know how drastically it will affect their way of life. Not only will you lose the person you thought might be your lifelong companion, you could lose many of the things that are a part of your married life, such as your house or more importantly your children. A divorce is a split between two lives, but it is very difficult, if not impossible, for that split to be clean.
