Divorce today, in the 21st century, is almost a norm. A large percentage of marriages are ending in divorce today. When a relationship is happy and exciting and new, it often seems like it could never end. What was once a classic love story can quickly turn into a bitter fight over asset division, child custody and any number of other issues. Divorce is often an emotionally charged and painful experience for all parties involved, and the last thing you want is to compound the unpleasantness by dealing with a variety of stressful arguments and legal battles.
Obviously you don’t want to set your marriage up for failure by planning and preparing for divorce from the outset. However, there is nothing wrong with drafting a prenuptial agreement in order to protect both parties’ interests should the relationship end at some point in the future. And for those already going through a divorce—or considering doing so—legal counsel is virtually mandatory, as very few divorces end amicably.
Understanding your rights as a married person—and as a divorced or soon-to-be-divorced person—can go a long way towards ensuring a fair settlement, not to mention reducing any related stress.
