Why Are Americans Fighting Over No-Fault Divorce? Maybe They Can't Agree What Marriage Is For.

Posted On: June 17, 2024

I find this article disturbing.  It took a long time for New York to join many other states in the nation to include no-fault divorce, permitting clients to obtain a divorce without substantiating specific grounds. 

There were instances in the past where certain individuals could not get divorced because an angry spouse refused to grant them a divorce and the other spouse was unable to establish the requisite grounds.

This article suggests that the Republican Party has been pushing back on the idea of no-fault divorce being invalid and that not being in love or irreconcilable differences is not a valid reason to get divorced. 

People should be permitted to marry whom they choose and should also be permitted to obtain a divorce when they choose, regardless of the grounds.

Couple Married For 69 Years Shares Their Secrets To A Successful Marriage

Posted On: June 09, 2024

Although most people know the community quoted statistic that more than half of marriages end in divorce, I was unaware that only 5% of marriages last 50 years or more.  Couples married for 60 or more years is even more rare. 

This article talks about a couple who are pushing 70 years of married life and apparently have become a tick tock sensation.  What appears to be most emphasized for their successful marriage is the ability “to bend” or be accommodating and to truly be accepting of your partner.  Not only the “good but the bad” as well.

7 Perils of Divorce Later in Life

Posted On: June 03, 2024

This article discusses several perils of divorce later in life.  Unfortunately, gray divorce as it is known is becoming more common and creates its own unique challenges. 

Finances can be extremely complicated, especially when a couple has planned for many years together.  Unwinding that to move on separately can become very difficult. 

The effects on adult children also should not be underestimated.  Divorce affects every child, regardless of age.

'Golden Bachelor' Gerry Turner, Theresa Nist Divorce News Shocks, But Don't Let It Get To You

Posted On: May 28, 2024

You might have read last month that the first “Golden Bachelor” couple are divorcing after three months of marriage.

Is this really a sign of the fate of marriages in later years of life or just how commercialized the “The Bachelor” program is and the end result it produces?

As with any marriage it depends on the couple.  This should be a lesson regarding how life portrayed on TV is not true real life.  “The Bachelor” has been contrived for public consumption and TV ratings and is not a reflection of true life.

US State Department Issues Worldwide Security Alert Due To Potential For Attacks On LGBTQI+ People And Events

Posted On: May 21, 2024

It is not new that haters have taken license, not only to be vocal about their hate but to commit violence. We all have to be more diligent with regard to our own safety.

This article citing the State Department's alert of terrorist attacks during Pride Month is extremely frightening and must be taken seriously!

We must all be diligent to protect everyone safety!

Pregnant Jenna Dewan Seeking Millions From Ex Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike Income

Posted On: May 13, 2024

Nearly six years after this couple, who share a ten-year-old, confirmed their breakup, they are still in the midst of their divorce proceeding trying to settle all issues.  Primarily, Jenna is seeking a large share of Channing’s earnings from his Magic Mike franchise

Once again, this shows the pitfalls of not having a Prenuptial Agreement that would normally align and determine assets regarding business development or income as a result of entrepreneurial efforts and opportunities that may come a person’s way.  Obviously for celebrities this is compounded astronomically! 

However, there may be significant assets, whether it's personal, intellectual property, or business assets from developing a business or concept that everyday people could acquire during the marriage, which ordinarily would become marital property.  Having a Prenup is extremely important to protect present and/or future potential assets. 

If you have questions about the benefits of Prenups or how to avoid a messy divorce, please feel free to contact Concetta G. Spirio, Esq. at Spirio Law and catch my blog article on the “Five Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement”.
