Separation or divorce: Time can harm or heal for older couples

As people get older they often reassess their lives. When one's children have grown up and left home to begin families of their own, it can seem that there's a lot more freedom than may have been the case for the prior 20 years or more. The realization that one no longer feels that same toward his or her spouse can come as a shock to a New Jersey resident, especially if the only option appears to be divorce.

Divorce is one of the main financial wake-up calls for women

Marriage is a partnership, and the division of labor often falls into a pattern based on how a couple live. Traditionally, men were seen as the ones who take care of the finances while women are charged with the care of the home and family. Many New Jersey women may feel that they have a good sense of financial responsibility, and may even handle many of the household finances. However, when they find themselves facing divorce, the sense of security can fall away rapidly.

Divorce may not be fair, but property division can be

Life is full of questions. The older one gets, the more questions seem to arise. However prepared a New Jersey resident may think he or she is, being presented with divorce papers can still feel like a bolt from the blue. One of the questions that might cross a person's mind is what happens when it comes to property division in an equitable distribution state.

A stitch in time will save much more during divorce

It is regularly suggested that half the marriages in this country end prematurely. According to a recent article in Time magazine, over the 35-year period between 1980 and 2015, the divorce rate actually decreased by 25 percent. While this gives a positive indication of the state of marriage today, the simple fact is that many New Jersey residents will decide to divorce this year.
