How do in-laws shape divorce rates?

As our Utah readers know, getting along with your in-laws might now always be the easiest thing. However, with the holidays upon us, and a recent study that was released, it seems that it is imperative that everyone get along.

As many of our Utah readers may know, divorce can be a messy situation in several ways. As a married couple, you share everything, and some of those things are more difficult to divide in the event of a divorce.

Trouble adopting for Utah woman

Child custody and adoption can sometimes get a little messy, and it is important to always keep in mind the best situation for the child.

Divorce is an emotionally, and often times financially, stressful time in a person's life, and no one should have to go through it alone. Some of the stress brought on by filing for divorce can be alleviated by having a carefully crafted plan for getting through the difficult times--particularly for people who have been married for years and never thought a divorce could happen to them. While overall divorce rates have stabilized in the U.S. in recent years, studies show that there has been an upward spike among the elderly population. In the last 20 years alone, the boomer generation has seen a 50 percent increase in divorce.
