Your children's age plays a big part in how they will react to news about your Massachusetts divorce as well as how they will adapt to the circumstances. No two children will respond in the same way, even if they are close in age, but professionals have found that certain emotions tend to be more prevalent at certain age groups.
At any age, a Massachusetts divorce can set you back financially, but ending a marriage later in life poses an extra threat: derailing a previously on-track retirement. As is true with younger couples, a divorce is likely to leave you with higher living expenses, lower in-come, and less wealth. But if you're fifty something or older, you'll have a lot less time to amass more earnings to make up for what you've lost.
Regarding the wellbeing of Massachusetts kids with divorced parents, the debate over what kind of custody arrangement is best rages on. But a new study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, suggests that children fare better when they spend time living with both of their parents.
Being lonely is not just an emotion reserved for those who are single or alone in Massachusetts. But there are ways to work through it.
Infidelity is everywhere in Massachusetts. Studies have shown that around 23% of married men and 12% of married women have at some point had sex with someone other than their spouse. But while something like extramarital sex is easy to define, the general concept of cheating is far more nuanced.
