Divorce over 50 need not decimate retirement plans

132143931_S.jpgWhile the divorce rate in Oklahoma and around the nation is on the decline, it is actually increasing among couples aged 55 and older. As these couples are nearer to retirement age, the issue of retirement and finances becomes a crucial consideration when contemplating divorce. It is certainly more important than for a younger couple who may have many earning years ahead of them.

Divorce is sometimes the answer

96559041_S.jpgIn Oklahoma and elsewhere, marriage is a contract entered into by two people who are intent on forming a partnership that they believe will endure for the rest of their lives. In roughly 50% of cases, the end comes sooner as about half of all marriages eventually end in divorce. Marriage is hard and full of ups and downs. When do the ups and downs give way to the need for divorce?

Oklahoma has a high rate of divorce

29080773_S.jpgMarriages in Oklahoma are typically entered into with the firm belief that the couple are embarking on a lifetime partnership. All too often, cracks appear in the partnership that may ultimately lead to divorce. While there are multiple issues that can be involved in obtaining a divorce in Oklahoma, there are some basics that a person should be aware of.

Real estate law can impact divorce decisions

98950979_M.jpgPeople like to think that marriage is the beginning of a life together, of starting a family, building a life and growing old together in Oklahoma. The sad truth is that Oklahoma currently has the 4th highest divorce rate in the country. When real estate is involved in a divorce, there are many question that may arise, and there are some added complications in Oklahoma.

It is important to be informed regarding facts of divorce

91230039_S.jpgMarriages in Oklahoma are entered into with the anticipation of a relationship that will continue to grow and thrive as the couple ages and builds their life together. Sadly, this is often not the case as couples can grow apart. Adding children to the mix can cause additional stress on the relationship, and divorce may be the result. There are certain assumptions that people may make regarding separation and divorce that are not true.
