It may surprise you to learn that January sees a one-third increase in divorces over other months in the year. Precisely what causes this sudden increase in divorce is difficult to determine, but what is certain is that money is a contributing factor. One study claims that, independent of income or debt, couples who argue about money for whatever reason are more likely to divorce. So even though January is over, there are lessons about divorce that we could all learn from.
This article lines out a few ways that couples can come to terms with monetary issues and perhaps overcome their marital problems. Ultimately, most of the advice comes down to simply being respectful of your spouse and being unafraid to communicate honestly about fiscal problems or issues. These may seem like obvious things to be pointing out, but a friendly reminder is never unwelcome, especially when it comes to marital issues.
Of course there is always the possibility that you are struggling in a marriage and the problems are not related to money, or that money is not the only concern. There are plenty of tips and tricks explaining how to keep your marriage alive, but the fact of the matter is that people change. Sometimes a marriage that was once full of love and care is now difficult to maintain. It is possible that your marriage simply doesn?t make you happy.
If you find yourself in such a situation, you might consider seeking a divorce. Divorce may seem like a frightening prospect to some, considering the division of assets and perhaps limitations on child interaction. However, in Texas, courts prioritize what is best for the child, so you will likely get an agreeable custody arrangement. To ensure that you receive the divorce agreement that you deserve, consider meeting with an attorney who can help you with your case.
