Do You Need a Cohabitation Agreement?

Family structures have changed significantly over the last 50 years. In fact, data from the Division of Vital Statistics suggests that more couples are shirking the idea of marriage and, instead, participating in cohabitation.

Is Your Marriage on Route to Divorce?

Most books and advice columns focus on saving marriages, and for a good reason: divorce is hard, often painful, and expensive. Sometimes, though, it is better to know if you should let go.

So how do you know if your marriage is on route to divorce? The following information may help. 

New Report Says Relationships Are the Biggest Financial Risk to Women - How You Can Mitigate the Risk

Women tend to be relational in nature, but relationships themselves may place them at financial risk. More specifically, marriage and divorce can be dangerous endeavors for women. This information comes from a new report, which was published by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

Stress During Divorce Can Have a Negative Impact on Children

Divorce can be painful and difficult for everyone involved, but children tend to be the most vulnerable to emotional trauma during the process. Further, children are at a higher risk for long-term negative effects from divorce. A new study indicates that stress may be one of the biggest factors. Learn how to mitigate this issue for your child during your divorce with help from the following information. 

Do Non-Traditional Roles in Marriage Increase the Risk of Divorce?

Family structures have changed significantly over the last couple of decades. It used to be that fathers went out and provided for the family while mothers cared for the children and home. Now there are single parent homes, homes where the father stays home, and still others where both parents work. Of course, no single option is really any "better" than another, but studies suggest that these non-traditional roles may be impacting the risk of divorce. Learn more about this phenomena, and how you can protect your family if you believe that divorce may be on the horizon.
