Divorce: High-profile couple calls it quits

It's the quintessential story of true love. Two people meet, fall in love, get married and live happily ever after. Romantic movies and love stories often portray marriage as a union of soul mates who live out their days together in a blissful utopia. However, in the real world, half of all marriages end in divorce. In California, celebrities are often held to a higher standard, but they also struggle with divorce.

Gray divorce presents unique challenges

Ending a marriage is one of life's most difficult events. Divorce is stressful and can be traumatic at any age but, surprisingly, the divorce rate as a whole is on a decline these days. However, in one certain demographic, the rate of divorce is rapidly rising. In what has become known as gray divorce, more and more senior adults in California nd across the country are deciding to end their marriage. According to recent statistics, divorce rates among adults ages 50 and older in the United States have nearly doubled in the last 20 years. 

Tips to emotionally recover from a divorce

Virtually no couple ever gets married with the end in mind, but this is what happens to nearly half of all marriages in the United States. Every marriage is different, and the circumstances surrounding each divorce are also different. One common thing about every divorce is that the experience is never easy. The following advice can help individuals in California recover from a split.

How to lower the cost of divorce

Sometimes, ending a marriage is necessary and the best course of action. However, regardless of circumstances, divorce is always expensive. California couples who decide to split often underestimate how big of an expense divorce actually is. For a traditional divorce, its not uncommon for the total cost to exceed $10,000. Here are a few ways to help reduce the cost of divorce.

Why divorce can be tougher on men

Obviously, men and women are very different. According to stereotypes, men are thought of as tough, resilient and steadfast. Conversely, women are typically thought of as emotionally volatile during times of crisis, thus needing more support. However, it can be surprising to find out that divorce may actually be tougher for men in California.

How to make divorce an easier transition

Ending a lengthy marriage can definitely be troubling and unsettling. Divorce is possibly one of the most difficult life transitions that a person can go through. However, about half of all marriages in California and across the country end in divorce, so this is something that thousands of people will experience this year alone. The following advice could make this a more peaceful and less stressful transition.

Helpful tips for those who are experiencing divorce

The end of a marriage is always an incredibly difficult challenge. Those in California who go through a divorce can be left psychologically and emotionally devastated. People change over time, and sometimes ending a marriage is needed and warranted. However, this doesn't make the process any easier or less stressful. Here are a few tips that could prove helpful to those who are going through this experience.

Going through a divorce more than once does not get easier

There are countless reasons why a marriage does not thrive. When a divorce is the best remedy for a couple's problems, it is still a difficult process. When California residents have later remarried, it may be even more challenging to have to seek a second or third divorce.
