Why a late-life divorce is not always the tragedy it once was

At one time, unhappy couples in their golden years endured the marriage for the sake of their adult kids and public opinion. Divorce at any age was seen as a negative in nearly all cases, even when one or both spouses were miserable with the situation. Now, divorce does not carry the stigma of bygone days, but many discontented couples still resist the idea of late-life divorce.

You don't have to let divorce ruin your business

You've been in a marriage for a long time and have been a business owner in the great state of Florida for just about as long. You and your spouse have been through it all -- raised your kids, grown your business, loved the ups and survived the downs. You are both looking forward to the years ahead, as long as you spend those years ahead apart. You both want a divorce, but how it will affect your company is a concern.

Are there benefits to being the first to file for divorce?

It is rarely a joyous occasion when a marriage reaches its end. Because it can be such a difficult decision, many Florida spouses procrastinate before filing for divorce. This is good if there is a chance to save the marriage, but when the relationship is broken beyond repair, procrastination may not serve your best interests.

What you should know about rehabilitative alimony

When a spouse first hears about rehabilitative alimony, it often strikes fear into his or her heart because it sounds so temporary. This is especially so if the spouse has not worked outside of the home for many years and doesn't yet have an income in place. While it is admirable to give up a career in order to support a spouse's business efforts, it can be detrimental should divorce enter the picture.

Managing marital property correctly can help if you ever divorce

When people get married, they almost never think about divorce. This is the way it should be because you are happy and in love with your partner. However, as everyone knows, divorce happens, even in marriages that start out blissfully.
