The dynamics between men and women have been changing dramatically for the last few decades. In Pennsylvania and other states, this can be seen in the workplace as well as various other aspects of society. Marriage and divorce also show a change in gender dynamics from the past, especially when it comes to spousal support. Today, it is not uncommon to see a woman ordered to pay spousal support to her former husband.
Marriages are not an exact science, and each couple is different. However, there may be some common characteristics indicating whether a couple is more likely to experience a divorce in the future in Pennsylvania. A recently released study shows that how long a couple dates and income play a significant role in predicting if a couple will stay together.
Diamonds are known for being durable and long-lasting. This is why the stone is most commonly used for engagement rings and wedding rings in Pennsylvania as well as any other state. However, what is surprising is that it has been found that the more a person spends on his or her wedding ring, the more likely the marriage will end in divorce.
It is common for married couples that are having relationship problems to separate from one another without actually filing a divorce. This is what Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner had been doing to deal with their marital problems. Many in Pennsylvania may have been following the story and wondered when the couple would decide to legally end their marriage. Now, there will be no more waiting, since Kris Jenner has finally filed for divorce in court.
Making the decision to divorce can sometimes feel like deciding to wade through a cage full of wild dogs. However, it does not have to be that way. Many Pennsylvania couples feel as if they are powerless through the divorce process, but the opposite is true.
Undoubtedly, going through a divorce can be an overwhelming prospect for many Pennsylvania residents. Both parties want to be treated fairly and receive everything to which they are entitled. Without a clear financial picture, complex property division can be time-consuming and expensive.
Regardless of what happens in a relationship between two people, if they have children together, they will likely always be connected. When a Pennsylvania marriage ends, the feelings of anger, resentment and hurt do not usually go away overnight, which can cause additional stress on the children as the divorce proceeds. Fortunately, the parents can use the process to their advantage.
Some Pennsylvania residents may not know that after 10 years of marriage or more, one party may be eligible to receive Social Security benefits based on the other party's work record in the event the marriage ends. At least two years after the divorce is final and after both parties turn 62 years of age, an application for benefits can be made. The potential receipt of these benefits is something that the parties may consider as they contemplate going forward with divorce proceedings.
Nearly every married couple in Pennsylvania spends at least some time examining their marriage. It is nearly impossible to live with someone and not have an occasional issue with each other. A recent study says that this introspection may lead to divorce if a family member or friend gets divorced.
It can be easy for Pennsylvania couples to become embroiled in a court battle over who gets the house, car or some other asset in a divorce. It is almost as if that asset becomes the eye of the property division storm, and neither party is going to give it up without a fight. These divorce battles can become so consuming that the parties forget about everything else -- even if for just a short time.
