Why Are Happy Couples Splitting Up?

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Divorce is an aspect of life that couples today can be seen going through more and more. When a relationship begins a couple is focused on not what is going on around them, or other things, but usually with just spending time with their significant other. However, time shows us that this can change in an instant, especially after vows and said and rings are exchanged. Today, this can obviously be seen in our communities, especially with studies and research stating that 1 in 3 couples will go through a divorce. However, why are those seemingly happy couples going through a divorce?

In the Journal of Family Psychology’s recent edition, it focuses on a study done by the University of California-Los Angeles that deals with the overall impact of marriage. The study observed 136 couples and their marriage over a period of time. Each couple was asked to rank portions of their marriage each and every year. However, most couples that showed that they were the most enjoyable the first few years of their marriage had a steady decline over the years that ultimately ended in their divorce.

Couples that had both good and bad qualities of the marriage at the beginning usually worked through their problems since it was believed there was “honesty within the relationship” that help changed the issues over time.

Research also stated some things that couples should make sure that they look out for so that it does not bring harm into their relationship that could send them easily sailing towards divorce. Pessimism within the relationship and having an overall negative outlook was one of the top reasons as to why couples sought a divorce.

Whether you believe it or not a divorce is something that can easily head your way if you do not take not only your need to mind, but also your spouse’s as well. A marriage is a partnership that requires a 100% from everyone.

Divorce and Babies

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

In our day and age, divorce is a very real aspect of life. When a couple begins their relationship all they can immediately think about is that of their happiness within the future. However, it seems that more and more couples today are changing the perception of their relationship after they exchange their vows and put rings on their fingers. Although most divorces seem to occur later down the road for couples, studies show that more and more couples are becoming divorced earlier after their marriage. However, how does divorce affect those that are involved with it, such as babies?

When the words divorce and babies are within the same sentence many individuals assume that it directly correlates to that of child custody or child support, but today that is not the case at all. Recently, research and studies were done that have shown that infants gained a clearer concept of emotions and feelings when their parents were engaged in a highly-emotional and volatile divorce. Most of these children showed signs of being able to adapt from one emotional level to another, or registered emotions with the way something was said verbally. Although this seems great for our children to understand feelings at such an early age what is it truly costing them?

The research report also showed that when children had exposure to these situations and emotions over a period of time it impacted the infants negatively. Infants were shown to experience side effects such as being apathetic to playing, being tired constantly, some forms of depression, loss of appetite, and even a regression of their developmental stages. However, parents who are going through a divorce can easily negate these possible outcomes occurring by introducing a routine schedule, and also spending more time with them in a playful setting.

Make sure that divorce is impacting just your relationship with your spouse, and not that of our child. When you need an experienced divorce attorney to help you get through these tough times in order to get your life and time back, especially towards your child make sure to choose the name you can trust.
