A good Massachusetts marriage civilizes men. At least, that's what it looks like, since fewer married men are antisocial. Married men are more responsible, less aggressive, less likely to do something illegal and more mentally healthy than single ones. This has been documented in a bunch of studies and chronicled in such great works of art as Jane Eyre and Failure To Launch. But it's never been clear whether it's the marriage that makes men antisocial or whether fewer antisocial men get married.
Contrary to popular opinion, people who say they are still madly in love with their Massachusetts spouses after more than two decades are not crazy. At least, some of them aren't. And apparently they're not lying either. This is the proposition of a study published in an issue of Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience that took brain scans of long-married people who claimed to still be besotted with their marital partner.
Typically, the greater number of high-value and complex assets a Massachusetts married couple has, the more complicated property division is during Massachusetts divorce.
Physical abuse is easy to recognize, but emotional abuse in a relationship can be more insidious, often going undetected by family members, friends and even victims themselves.
Conflict is an inescapable part of any Massachusetts relationship, especially a marriage. We bicker. We argue. We butt heads. We have heated conversations. Conflict also plays a healthy and positive role in relationships: It helps us to push one another, to settle disagreements, to make feelings known, and to arrive at solutions. There are, however, those people who fall into conflict over the slightest provocations - or perceived provocations. These high-conflict personalities are easily triggered by minor episodes of miscommunication or the occasional offhand remark, until their relationships are dominated by contention. The conflict-oriented mind-set tends to see just two options during an argument: escape or win.
It seems the ripple effect of coronavirus has infected everything, and divorcing Massachusetts individuals are not immune. The most apparent impact is that most, if not all, courthouses are closed except for emergencies. This may delay your divorce, along with applications for temporary support and custody. There are other less obvious issues as well. Here are six areas you need to re-assess when going through a divorce, along with actions to prepare and protect yourself.
While most Massachusetts divorcing partners strive to make the divorce process as quick andpainless as possible, sometimes it's just not that easy. What do you do when things aren't going your way-your spouse wants more than his or her fair share of the assets, or proposed custody arrangements aren't agreeable to you, for example? Should you roll the dice and go to trial, letting a judge decide the issues? Or what if you just can't get your spouse to the negotiating table? Is continued litigation a good option?
According to recent research women who received big promotions were more likely to get divorced. Researchers examined men and women employed by private businesses with 100 employees or more and found that married women were twice as likely to divorce three years after a CEO-level promotion when compared to male colleagues.
