How to end a marriage in a mature fashion

Virginia residents and others who get divorced may see the split itself as a war to be won. However, this doesn't have to be the case. Instead, individuals can work together to end the relationship in a civil and timely manner. Prior to starting divorce talks, it can be a good idea to think about the types of conflict that occurred within the marriage itself.

Divorce mistakes that could be costly

Getting a divorce in Virginia doesn't necessarily have to be a costly process for couples parting ways. There are many factors that will ultimately determine the financial implications of a split, some of which are unavoidable. Even so, there are certain mistakes that could make ending a marriage a bit more costly than anticipated.

The advantages of a prenup for student couples

Few people want to think about the possibility of divorce and the need for prenuptial agreements while planning a wedding. Students may be even less likely to think a prenup is needed since they may have few assets. However, there are several reasons students in Virginia might want to consider one.

How illness can lead to divorce

A Virginia couple may be more likely to divorce when the wife gets sick. Of course, this depends on what type of illness she has and how strong the marriage was before the illness occurred. However, data from multiple studies suggests that a man getting sick doesn't have the same type of impact on a marriage. Overall, research suggests that a man's health benefits more from being married than a woman's health does.

Options for dealing with a home in a divorce

When couples in Virginia separate or are ready to get a divorce, they may have a home they need to sell or that one person wants to keep. There are several factors to keep in mind at this stage. One is that neither person may be able to afford the house on a single income once they look at a monthly budget.

Why it's important for couples to get out of debt

Couples in Virginia might want to take steps to get out of debt. A survey from Fidelity found that more than half of partners are in debt when they enter a relationship. Of those people, more than one-third said money issues had a negative effect on the relationship, and almost half disagreed about which partner was at fault.

Helping children of divorce plan for the holidays

The holidays are usually a time for joy and family. However, as some Virginia families know, they can also be the source of stress and worry, particularly when it comes to planning holiday schedules for children after a divorce. Although the emotions associated with ending a marriage can be overwhelming for all involved, there are ways parents can make the experience more enjoyable for their children while maintaining a calm environment.

Tips for giving kids stability after divorce

When parents in Virginia get a divorce, their children may struggle to adjust. However, parents can take steps to make the process less difficult. They should avoid engaging in conflict in front of their children, and they should try to change their routines as little as possible. They should keep children in the same school if they can and should try to agree on a set of expectations that will be similar in both their homes. Children may lose touch with cousins and other extended family members on one side during a divorce, so parents should encourage these relationships.

What happens to your frozen embryos during a divorce?

More American couples are turning to in vitro fertilization (IVF) to get pregnant. Research suggests around 5 percent of American couples will try IVF to have a baby this year. However, some of these couples will have to face a tough decision about what to do with their frozen embryos if their marriage ends in divorce.

How parents can help kids get through divorce

When parents in Virginia consider divorce, they may be deeply unhappy in their marriages but concerned about how the split would affect their children. Many parents remain in failing marriages for years due to concerns about how their kids would react to the divorce. In many cases, the kids may have a more difficult time dealing with the effects of staying together for the children than with their parents' divorce. By staying aware of the kids' emotional needs, parents can help their children to deal effectively with the challenges that can accompany divorce.
