Divorce in the News

 Every week or so, I look at what is happening in Divorce News. I search “divorce” in Google and put a time frame on the search of that current week or so to give me an overview of what is happening in divorce news. The trending news is typically celebrity news.

1-Divorced and remarried, these Afghan women are outlaws under Taliban rule.Here is a quote from the article

“After her stepfather sold her into marriage at the age of 13 to support his drug habit, the young Afghan woman fought for years to escape an abusive husband.

3-What Happens to Debt After Divorce? This article speaks to what happens when you have debt and you are going through a divorce.  

In Nevada, all assets from a marriage are considered “community property.” Under community property laws, assets are divided equally upon divorce. This means everything you own and everything you owe, either together or even separately, gets divided pretty much down the middle, unless there is a good reason as to why it shouldn’t be, and unless the property in question falls under an exemption. However, debts must be divided in a divorce as well.

4-Making the Decision to End Your Marriage here you will find “factors to consider before ending your marriage, reasons to get a divorce, plus the impact of an unhealthy marriage.

Ending your marriage is a difficult and complex decision. It pays to give it adequate thought and consider all of the alternatives before making a decision. You might decide that staying with your partner is the right choice, but you might also decide that divorce is the right choice. Whatever you decide, make sure that you care for yourself, consider the impact it may have on your life, and consult professionals who can help.
