Married couples in Texas who decide to call it quits may experience a wide range of emotions during the process. This is especially true when couples with children initiate the divorce or separation process during the holidays. The emotional fallout can be mitigated and the holidays enjoyed by remaining open to future adjustments and getting a little creative.

Getting a divorce later on in life could damage retirement

More and more older couples in Texas and across the United States are deciding to end their marriages sooner, according to a research center at a leading university.

Plans that were once seemingly adequate for the so-called golden years may no longer provide the protection that was originally intended.

Millennials, prenuptial agreements and divorce

With the rising rate of married couples calling it quits, more and more individuals are choosing to request prenuptial agreements, according to a recent survey. Specifically, more and more millennials are requesting these agreements in order to benefit them should they get a divorce. Texas residents may be surprised to learn that over half of the attorneys surveyed acknowledge a boost in how many millennials had requested a prenup and only 2 percent noticed a decrease for the group composed of 18- to 34-year-olds.
