Getting along for the children's health

As any divorcing couple in Pennsylvania knows, trying to get along for one another through the feelings of frustration, anger and sadness that often accompany a divorce is no small feat. But new studies show that going through the stressful and acrimonious divorce of parents can have lasting effects on the health of the children--reaching into adulthood.

Uncovering hidden assets during divorce

A strong, successful marriage is often based on mutual trust, and once that trust starts to dissipate, it can be hard to find it again. If you have lost trust in your spouse and believe that he or she may be trying to conceal assets ahead of an upcoming divorce, performing your due diligence can help ensure you get your fair share when the day comes.

Supporting the children through a divorce

As parents across Pennsylvania know, taking care of children is not always easy. Providing attention, love, and support to children can become more difficult when dealing with the anger and frustration that often accompany a divorce. Yet, as the Washington Post explains, successfully parenting through a divorce can keep the child feeling safe and loved, even as his or her world changes dramatically.

The rise of gray divorce

While divorce can be complicated no matter how long a couple is together, as those who divorce in their older age will find, there are specific concerns those over 50 will face that may not be at the top of mind for their younger counterparts. Gray divorce, or couples ending their marriage after age 50, is on the rise, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and a quarter of those seeking divorces in 2010 fell into the gray divorce category. While some of the marriages that are ending were first marriages, the baby-boomers now seeking divorce are also subsequent marriages, which tend to end in divorce at a higher rate.
