Here's how to help your kids survive your divorce

If you think that you're having a rough time getting through your divorce, don't forget about what your children are going through. Your kids will not be feeling the same kind of weight on their shoulders regarding your divorce, but they will be nervous, unsettled and sad to be sure. If you're so lost in your own suffering, however, you could lose sight of the needs and wants of your children.

Are some careers better for marriage than others?

North Carolina spouses get divorced for an unlimited number of reasons. However, sometimes statistics show something interesting about trends with regard to divorce.

Could your choice of profession make you more susceptible to divorce?

Questions to ask before you pull the trigger on your divorce

In some cases, the decision might be yours to get a divorce. In others, it might be your spouse's decision. Alternatively, the decision might be mutual.

Advice for telling young children about divorce

3 divorce dilemmas: Which one are you facing?

Money issues and financial concerns are the roots of many divorces. Perhaps, you're a spendthrift penny saver who would never think to hold a balance on your credit card. Meanwhile, your spouse is carrying thousands of dollars of debt due to reckless spending.

The benefits of legal separation agreements

Divorce is the final separation of all marital ties, but sometimes couples want to separate while maintaining some of the benefits of marriage.

If you're in either of these situations, a legal separation agreement could be more appropriate than divorce.

Does beauty increase the chance of divorce?

If you're going through a divorce, it's likely that your head is spinning with questions like, "What went wrong?" and "Could I have done something different to prevent this?" Some North Carolina residents will even lament their decision to say "I do." But what if your divorce had nothing to do with any of the reasons you're thinking about? What if you're getting a divorce because you're too beautiful?
