Affair If You Dare

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Today, we live within a world that is completely different than that of years ago.  Back in yesteryear, divorce was simply a term that was almost completely unheard of. Yet today, it is stated through reports and statistics that 1 out of 3 Americans will either go through a divorce or know of someone that will. However, divorce has many different faces whether you know it or not. When you encounter a divorce they must be handled with extreme care and understanding. If not you can easily not only compromise the case at hand, but also what you will be awarded in the end.

Most divorces are the result of unhappiness, or just satisfaction not being present within the marriage anymore. However, the idea that a spouse can engage in an affair with an individual that is outside the marriage is not a new concept at all. An affair can completely ruin a marriage in an instant, but some marriages can be seen that both spouses engage in affairs. Why couples stay together if they are physically and emotionally busy with others that are not their spouse is a question that many ask in most cases that involve that of an affair.

However, when you engage in an affair you are not only compromising your marriage, but also a divorce. Most of the time, if one spouse is found at fault of committing the act of adultery they can easily forfeit some of their assets and property over to the other spouse who is seen as the victim of the affair. Premarital agreements can also sometimes become voided as well if it is cited within the document that if an affair occurs assets will be split accordingly.

Affairs not only affect you and your spouse, but also your children and family in the end. Many children take out their frustration about the divorce and future changes on the parent who was entangled within the affair and their relationship eventually becomes strained.

When you are married you are committed to someone spiritually, emotionally, intimately, and legally. If you feel as if your marriage is not working out take it upon yourself to either work things out or file for a divorce. An affair not only complicates your life now, but also your divorce as well.

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Divorce today is now an aspect of life that almost seems expected to occur at one point or another. No one truly expects that when they are exchanging their vows at their wedding that down the road they will not be with the person that stole their heart and they fell in complete love with. It should come to no ones surprise that, like the seasons we see every year, people change whether it is for the better or for the worst. Whether you know it or not people can and do fall out of love.

As a result of these things individuals either try to work things out or get a divorce, which usually happens in most cases. A divorce is not only an emotional and public separation of a couple, but also a legal one, which splits their assets and property depending on many variables.

Technology today is something that individuals rely on greatly, especially when it comes down to communication. Yet, when you communicate with your ex-spouse when your going through a divorce you are not only complicating the situation at hand, but also ultimately impacting the potential outcome of the results in the end.

When you text your spouse the messages can be inferred in multiple ways. Messages that deal with a more positive tone could easily show that the individual who sent it does not really want to participate in a divorce at all. Negative messages can make an individual seem either threatening, harmful, and dangerous. It does not even take your former spouse to cause issues when these messages are sent, but simply someone to just view them and report them to a legal entity.

Many times individuals can try to take the stress of the divorce out on the other by texting them or leaving them voicemails that can be seen as rude, and unnecessary. When you are going through a divorce make sure that your communication with you former spouse is documented properly or another is present in order to make sure facts are separated from fiction that could harm your divorce.
