Marriage comes with a great deal of work

| Feb 25, 2013 | Property Division |

People who are going through a divorce in New York and beyond can be presented with a number of challenges. Parents with children must settle child custody matters and determine whether or not child support and alimony will be awarded. Couples also have the daunting task of splitting up their marital property. Settling property division matters can be difficult, especially if couples have a lot of high-value assets.

Most people want to avoid a divorce, but there are situations in which divorce may be the only solution. While that may be true in some instances, there are things that couples should know before they enter into a marriage that may help them avoid problems down the road.

In his best picture acceptance speech, actor Ben Affleck thanked his wife “for working on marriage for 10 Christmases.” He further pointed out that marriage is work. While it may not have been the best forum, he brings up a good point.

A recent article in The Huffington Post points out that marriage is something that comes with a great deal of work. Many people are under the false impression that they have achieved all there is to achieve when they get married. However, they may learn quickly that marriage comes with a lot of challenges. Couples may not realize that nearly every day they will be forced to compromise.

Of course, even with a lot of work, some marriages cannot be saved. It may be difficult to pursue a divorce. However, in the end, it may be for the best. In order to be sure issues are settled in a fair and equitable manner, New York residents would be wise to work with an experienced divorce attorney.
