Marriage between the age of 28 and 32 lessens the chance of divorce

A new study conducted by University of Utah sociologist Nick Wolfinger and published by the Institute of Family Studies found that couples that get married between the ages of 28 and 32 are the least likely to divorce.

Data from the 2006-2010 and the 2011-2013 National Survey of Family Growth show that “the odds of divorce decline as you age from your teenage years through your late twenties and early thirties” while “the chances of divorce go up again as you move up into your late thirties and early forties”, Wolfinger said.

Some theories for this “Goldilocks Age of Marriage” are that people at this age are mature enough to care for themselves and to distinguish between truly getting along with a potential lifetime partner as opposed to being “blinded by hormones”. On the other side of things, they are not as set in their ways as older individuals, nor do they have ex-spouses or children as often to split their time with, and consequently the transition into marriage may be easier for this demographic.

Primary custody sought by Adrienne Maloof

Beverly Hills housewife Adrienne Maloof and her husband have chosen to separate from one another after nine years of marriage. This difficult decision comes after their tumultuous relationship, which seemed to be irreconcilable.

The couple has been featured on the television show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2010. They have three young sons together, who are said to be their number-one priority during this time.

A prenuptial agreement is present in their relationship, according to several sources who are close to the celebrity couple. Adrienne made a public statement regarding the welfare of her children, claiming that she was interested in obtaining sole custody of them during the divorce procedure.

Laura Dern and Ben Harper to divorce

After seven years of marriage, Laura Dern and Ben Harper are ending their marriage. Laura Dern, 45, filed official divorce documents on Friday, but Harper had originally filed these same papers back in 2010, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple tried to reconcile after the first divorce filing, but it was ultimately unsuccessful. When Ben Harper asked for a divorce in 2010 after five years of marriage, he wanted joint custody of their children and asked for Laura to not receive any spousal support.

Laura Dern has different plans for their divorce this time. She is seeking primary custody of her 7-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son that she has with Harper. She has also filed for Harper to pay her child support and spousal support and to also cover her lawyer fees during the divorce procedure.

It is important to have experienced representation by your side during a divorce. Please contact the divorce attorneys of Marshall & Taylor PLLC, by calling 919-833-1040 today.

Divorce rate for baby boomers doubles

The divorce rate for people over the age of 50 has increased by more than 50 percent over the last 20 years.

Baby boomers, who are now past 50, account for four out of every 10 divorces in the United States. An older individual is also 2.5 times more likely to experience a divorce if they are in their second or third marriage.

People included in the baby boomer generation are looking for more out of life and are willing to undergo a divorce in order to experience that. Many of the divorces that are taking place in this age group are seen as friendly and are benefiting both parties equally.

Divorce papers filed on same day by David Arquette and Courteney Cox

David Arquette filed paperwork to divorce Courteney Cox on Friday, and minutes later his soon-to-be ex-wife filed her response to those same papers.

The couple, who married in 1999, have been separated since October 2010. Eight years ago, they welcomed a daughter, Coco, and are now both seeking joint legal and physical custody of their daughter. According to several sources, a prenuptial agreement was not in place at the time of their marriage.

Arquette has not asked for either child support or spousal support, and if a prenuptial agreement was indeed not present, then he would be entitled to half of all that Courteney earned while they were married.

If you are seeking a divorce from your partner, it is recommended to have experienced representation on your side. Please contact the divorce lawyers of Marshall & Taylor PLLC, by calling 919-833-1040 today.
