It is safe to say that a majority of Atlanta couples experience a good deal of anxiety and nerves during the engagement process, and especially in the months, days and minutes leading up to their wedding. But according to a new study, couples who experience those normal feelings at above-average levels may be more likely to divorce than others who wed with little to no anxiety and uncertainty.
With just under 100 days left until the 2012 presidential election, Georgia residents are likely to see a significant increase in campaign commercials, candidate emails and donation requests in the coming weeks. While there is still plenty of time to decide which candidate you would like to see in office, there is one task that recently-divorced women may want to tackle well in advance: changing your name and getting a new driver's license or ID card.
When we write about divorce on our Atlanta family law blog, we often talk about the legal process or the end product of a split. It is rare that we discuss the weeks, days and moments leading up to a couple's decision to end their marriage. But like many other areas of divorce and family law, it seems that the start of the process may be changing too.
According to a recent study, women who file for divorce are more likely to suffer long-term financial repercussions of that split than women who remain married or remarry following divorce. Specifically, the data indicates that divorced women may end up with less money when they enter retirement as a result of the loss of their former spouse's Social Security retirement benefits.
