Common reasons cited by people for divorces

92219515_S.jpgIn Missouri, many marriages end each year. When people are preparing to marry, they likely do not consider that they may end up divorcing in the future. It is important for people to understand some of the common factors that contribute to divorce so that they might work to prevent them from affecting their own marriages.

The challenges of being a single father

28863180_S.jpgMissouri dads may be capable of raising their children as well as mothers are. In some cases, mothers still get full custody while asking the father to pay child support without fully analyzing the situation. This may be despite the fact that women are just as likely to have issues with substance abuse or neglect their children. However, society may still feel as if a father is not capable of being a single parent.

Parental alienation after divorce

In most cases, the adults involved understand that it is critical for children to have a positive relationship with both parents. Unfortunately, some parents deliberately attempt to manipulate their children into having negative feelings about the other parent.

Retirement-age couples have unique divorce challenges

42108612_S.jpgMany unhappy spouses reaching retirement age in Missouri may find it uncomfortable to discuss the possibility of divorce. However, since 1987, the divorce rate for U.S. couples over 50 has escalated continuously, even as the overall rate of divorce has been on a downward trend. Recent studies show that about one out of four couples over the age of 50 decides to divorce, and the trend shows no sign of stopping. For older couples, existing difficulties in a marriage can be aggravated by the departure of adult children and changes to lifestyle brought about by retirement.
