During and after divorce in Massachusetts your children may be hyper-sensitive about many things. What may have formerly been routine conversations, questions or activities can now be touchy subjects fraught with anxiety, resentment or anger. This is understandable when you consider that the stability of the world they knew has been dramatically altered.
While the overall divorce rate is slightly down from the '70s, '80s, and '90s,divorce for Massachusertts couples aged 50 or older or "gray divorce" as it's called doubled between 1990 and 2010. Now, roughly one in four divorces is gray.
According to relationship and marriage experts, Massachusetts couples wait an average of six years of being unhappy before getting help. That means that after an issue arises, people are more likely to live the better part of a decade with resentment growing, as opposed to addressing and fixing it with a divorce while it's manageable.
Perseverance is a blue chip trait, because life will inevitably become difficult during your Massachusetts marriage. The only thing to do, during those moments of difficulty, is power through and grind it out until the end.
If you have a happy Massachusetts marriage, "'til death do us part" may be a long ways off.
