In the U.S. more than 50% of new marriages end in divorce. The nature of divorce can be an emotional roller-coaster. We are taught that marriage is to last forever. Marriage is a partnership and nothing here on this earth should be able to come between this heavenly union. I’ve been married for over 20 years. Together my husband and I have three sons, we’ve owned homes, lost homes our marriage has run the gamut of emotions. I can’t imagine what emotions a divorce would bring, not to mention all of the lives and relationships it would effect. But, in his book, Jeff Landers warns against thinking emotionally when it comes to D-I-V-O-R-C-E.
Because I am not at that place in my marriage, I approached the reading of the book with slight trepidation and some cynicism. Before I made it halfway my views had changed. In it’s defense the book is not telling us all to go out and get divorced. Quite the opposite, it’s saying if you’re at that point, be smart. Don’t take your emotions into the divorce court room. Be clever, know your financial standings think about you and your children’s financial future. A divorce doesn’t end financial responsibility. Know your rights and don’t be afraid. Take control and make sure you get every penny you’re entitled to.
Over the years I’ve had many friends and family members whose marriages have ended in divorce. We spent time together hugging and crying.

It’s good to be prepared and to know what you should be looking for when going into a marriage.
