Why saying I do to a prenuptial agreement just makes sense

33143952_S.jpgGone are the days when the majority of men and women in the U.S. married straight out of high school. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, in 1950 the median age for first marriages among women was 21 and men, 23. Fast forward to 2015 and the median ages at which women and men marry have increased to 27 and 29. Today, not only are more people delaying marriage, but the national divorce rate also consistently hovers between 40 to 50 percent.

20182147_S.jpgWe have previously warned readers that studies about marriage, divorce, custody and other family law issues must be taken with a grain of salt. On one hand, the findings are usually interesting. On the other hand, study results don't apply to all cases and may not be all that helpful.

Helping older children understand & cope with parental divorce

25227973_S.jpgIn our post last week, we discussed how divorcing parents can help their toddlers understand and cope with the difficulty of parental divorce.
