The likelihood of divorce for older couples

Texas couples who are over 50 might be more likely to get a divorce if they are in second or later marriages or if they have $50,000 or less in assets according to a study by the National Center for Family & Marriage Research. Some people may assume that events such as children leaving home or retirement could trigger divorce among older couples, but this does not appear to be the case. Furthermore, this age group is divorcing at a higher rate than they were in previous decades, but the divorce rate is still half the rate that it is for younger couples.

The impact of politics on marriage

Texas couples might find information about the impact of politics on marriage useful, particularly if they are seeking the reasons for disagreements that might even lead to separation and eventually divorce. Data from Wakefield Research, a polling firm, indicates that arguments over politics, particularly after President Trump's election, do have a negative effect on a relationship.

Avoiding disputes about child custody and vacation

Texas parents who are divorced might have specifications regarding vacation plans written into their custody orders. However, if they do not, this could become a point of conflict. Even when custody orders do specify how vacations should be divided, some tips may help reduce the likelihood of misunderstandings or tension.

Fighting for custody? Keep this in mind

Texas parents who are fighting for custody know that the whole process is delicate and emotional. When relatives and friends get involved, offering advice and pressuring towards certain decisions, it can become even more complicated. While working out a custody and parenting plan amicably is ideal, it is not always possible, particularly since the custody negotiations come after the dissolution of a relationship.
