Situations when divorce may make sense for parents

The effects that divorce can have on children have been well documented, and parents in New York and around the country sometimes choose to stay in unhappy marriages because they wish to keep their families intact. Experts say that staying together for the sake of the children often does more harm than good, but it may make sense in certain situations. Important factors to consider when weighing this decision include the ages of the children involved and the nature of the issues their parents are facing.

Predicting the likelihood of divorce

Before getting married, most New York spouses believe that their relationships will last a lifetime. Despite such optimistic outlooks, many marriages will eventually end in divorce. Researchers have found a number of factors that can help predict whether couples might end up divorcing in the future.

Some paths are more likely to lead toward divorce

Marriage, as most New York couples know, has both its ups and downs. While healthy couples can often recover from certain issues, spouses who might have already been struggling might not be able to continue after a crisis. Furthermore, there are certain situations that are more likely to lead couples to divorce.

Traits that may lead to the end of a marriage

There are several factors that may influence whether or not an individual gets a divorce. For example, New York residents who see their parents get divorced may be more likely to do so themselves. However, there is a debate as to whether that is a result of nature or nurture. What a person looks like may also play a role in whether or not he or she is going to get divorced.

How to react if a spouse is acting poorly in a divorce

There are many actions that may be frowned upon during a New York divorce proceeding. For example, hiding assets is something that a judge may not like to hear about. It may also be underhanded to share a spouse's private information with friends or other family members without that person's permission. Fortunately, there are things that a person can do to minimize the effects of those actions.

How social media can harm you during divorce

It is amazing how social media has changed the way people communicate and share information about themselves. Five years ago, only college students and teenagers had a Facebook page. Now, Fortune 500 corporations, start-up companies and octogenarians have Facebook pages.  While social media makes for interesting interactions, it could also lead to serious problems for people going through contested child custody matters.
