Having kids is seen as an integral part of a Massachusetts married couple's life; it marks the transition from just marriage and living together to, well, being parents. It's a shift that's been explored in pop culture for ages now, because it's come to symbolize the moment that your family really begins to form. But, for many, the question remains: does having kids statistically increase your chances of divorce?
No two Massachusetts marriages end in the same way. But when looking at the larger picture, patterns emerge. And, prior to divorce, there are some key factors that stand out more than others. A variety of relationship experts and therapists and when asked this one question: What, according to what you've noticed, is the most common predictor of divorce? The professionals responded with everything from failures of accountability to issues of contempt to slow erosions of trust.
Maintaining a happy Massachusetts marriage after having a baby is hard. So hard, in fact, that millennials are increasingly forming families in reverse, opting to wed later in life and have children with one another long before they walk down the aisle. Until recently, such behavior was not only social taboo, it was thought to increase divorce risk. But now, a new study suggests that couples who have children together before getting married are no more likely to get divorced than couples who go about it the traditional way.
Husbands and wives who commit infidelity don't just cheat on their Massachusetts spouses with anyone. They cheat on their partners with people who fall into very specific categories that make them more likely to spark temptation. Whether it's someone they know already or a opportunistic encounter with a stranger, people tend to cheat in patterns that can be traced by the person in bed with them. People who are worried about their partners cheating may want to look a little closer at the following parties as a result.
The messiness of a Massachusetts divorce has been well documented. The attorneys, the custody battles, dividing everything up. But when you are sure - absolutely sure - you want to go through with one, how do you tell your spouse you want a divorce? In movies, it's often blurted out in the midst of a heated argument, with one partner or the other dramatically shouting, "I want a divorce!" But in life, things tend to go a bit differently. And, if you want the ensuing legal battle to be civil, it's in one's best interest to take pause and really determine how to tell the person they vowed to spend the rest of their life with that it's over. So how does one deliver this particularly life-altering bit of news?
A Massachusetts divorce may change the way a family looks, but it does not have to break it completely. Massachusetts parents who can manage to stay civil and connected when their marriage ends offer their kid much better outcomes. That's because kids thrive in stable environments and are better able to handle the world when they have a sense that their mom and dad are co-parenting to further their child's interests.
In any Massachusetts marriage even in the strongest, happiest ones, problems and frustrations will inevitably arise. And while it's not worth broaching every single little grievance that grinds your gears there are certain problems that really shouldn't be ignored.
