Marriage equality was long a dream for same-sex couples. Once it finally happened, however, researchers noticed a strange phenomenon that seemed to be happening just about everywhere that same-sex marriage is legal: Lesbians end up getting divorced more often than gay men.
Blended families start when a couple falls in love and at least one person involved has children from a previous relationship. Many blended families have long-term success and happiness together, but there are cases where they end in divorce as well.
When you and your ex-spouse split, you were working and earning a decent living. You didn't mind paying your fair share of support for the kids, and you had enough left over to support yourself in reasonable comfort.
There's no question about it: Divorce can be a painful, ugly process for everyone involved. By the time you make it into an attorney's office, the odds are high that you've already endured months or years of marital discord.
You've heard enough horror stories from couples who have been through ugly breakups to know what a bad divorce can be like -- but is there really such a thing as a "good" divorce?
