Most of us do not enter into a marriage preparing for the possibility that it will not work out. Although we have all heard roughly half of marriages end in divorce, no one ever thinks their marriage will be one of them. For this reason, nine out of ten couples do not sign a premarital agreement before they get married.
When a couple is considering divorce, weighing the impact this decision will have on their children is at the front of their minds. Divorce is never easy on any family, but children are often better off with divorced parents than living with married parents who hate each other. Once the question of divorce is decided, parents immediately wonder what to say to their kids. No matter how you decide to break the news, reassuring your children they are loved and will always be cared for is most important.

The financial aspects of divorce can, under some circumstances, be just as stressful and confusing as the emotional aspects. As most people know, the decisions you make before, during, and, in the event of divorce, after your marriage can have financial repercussions on you for the rest of your life.
