Nebraska tops the list of 7 worst states to get divorced

While divorce is an agonizing life-event, there are some states where the emotional and financial toll is greater than others. There is a list containing states in which filing and legal paperwork are the most expensive and/or require the longest waiting periods and residency requirements.

Divorce may be affected by level of education

Recent research studies indicate those spouses who have a higher level of education tend to stay in longer-term relationships with their partners compared to other socio-economic groups. Some attribute this trend to the breaking away of the non-stereotypical gender roles.

Can watching a movie lower the chances of divorce?

When most of us need an escape from reality, we go no further than our local theater -- or even our own couch -- to spend a few hours watching a movie. While this simple act is a great way to relieve stress after a long week, it may surprise you to learn that it can also serve as an effective method of strengthening your marriage.

Divorce becomes more prominent at the beginning of the year

There is a general acceptance that, during the first few months of the new year, divorce rates rise. There is plenty of data to back this up, but the more complicated question is "why?" Why does this happen every year? There could be many answers, and not every divorce case may have just one. It could be that the stress of the holidays causes a couple to divorce; it could be that the winter weather brings a couple down, spurring a divorce; it could be that New Year's makes a spouse realize that his or her life needs to change, and a divorce is the right way to go about this new chapter.

Economy and divorce may be related, says new study

While there are ebbs and flows to the national divorce rate, the average divorce rate has hovered around 50 percent for quite some time (in other words, 50 percent of marriages eventually end in divorce). But now that the "Great Recession" has come and gone, a national study has found that divorce rates are on the rise just as the economy does the same.
