Why do couples consider divorce?

Married couples can sometimes face challenges that might lead them to consider if the relationship needs to end. While some crisis can be overcome, there are reasons that cause strife in a Texas marriage that might result in the people involved making the decision to divorce.

Permission and planning in custody situations

Texas parents who are divorced and who do not have primary physical custody of their child could deal with some challenges in participating in certain facets of that child's life. In some cases, custodial parents tend to be restrictive in allowing visitation time in excess of that provided for in a parenting plan. This could be related to fears of their position being undermined by the other party. However, parents with joint legal custody might face times when they would like to be a part of special activities in order to cultivate a stronger relationship. The wording in a parenting plan can be so general and vague that it is easy to interpret certain issues in a manner that favors one's own point of view.

Divorced parents and summer vacation

Divorced parents in Texas often use the spring to start making their summer plans. This might involve a change in the usual custody and visitation schedule. Summers might be busier for children with more activities going on, but parents still need to be able to communicate and cooperate, and that is also better for a child's adjustment.

Prenuptial agreements may protect a business

Texas business owners who are planning on getting married may want to consider prenuptial agreements. Owning a business without having such an agreement in place can be disastrous for a company if the marriage subsequently comes to an end. The other spouse could be eligible to receive half of the company's appreciation that took place during the marriage.
