Military divorce rate continues four-year decline

| Mar 13, 2015 | Military Divorce |

In last week’s post, we talked about how pensions and child support are treated in a military divorce. These divorces are often unfortunate side-effects of military service, with one or both parties realizing that their relationship cannot survive the months apart and the constant moving about as the military member is stationed all across the country. The last thing that a military member who is deployed overseas needs to worry about is how the time spent apart will affect their relationship.

Fortunately for military members and their spouses, things may be looking up. According to numbers released by the Defense Department, the military divorce rate is the lowest it has been in a decade. Pentagon officials said that the military divorce rate has been steadily declining since 2011, when it peaked at 3.7 percent. It has now fallen down to 3.1 percent, and hopefully the numbers will continue to decline.

Even though the divorce rate is declining, there are still, obviously, military couples who are seeking divorce, and it is important to remember that it is not a bad thing. While the actual divorce process may be hard on a family and add to the stress of military service, life after a divorce is often an improvement. Most couples get divorced for a reason, and being single again, free from a marriage that was not making you happy, can be the first step toward discovering happiness again with someone else.

Texas boasts some of the largest military bases in the country, so it is likely that there are military members contemplating divorce. In order to help you get through your divorce as quickly and painlessly as possible, it is recommended that you speak with an attorney. A legal professional who has experience handling military divorces can minimize the stress of divorce so that you can move on with your life and start fresh.
