Correlation between divorce rates and household chores

A recent study is sure to shock quite a few readers. It turns out that in those marriages where housework duties are split between a husband and a wife, those couples have a 50 percent greater chance of divorce than those couples where the wife is the one doing most of the chores.

Missouri: Equitable division and what it means for marital debts

When going through a divorce, each spouse normally spends a good amount of time worrying about how assets are going to be divided. Is the ex-husband going to keep the home? Is the wife going to try and take the family van? Just how are the bank accounts going to be split up?

Study: Time with dad boosts children's self-esteem

It's important for divorced fathers to maintain a lasting relationship with their children. For not only is this something that means a lot to dads, a recent study also determined that children who spend more one-on-one time with their fathers have better self-esteem.

Advice for fathers on co-parenting

Being a divorced father who is co-parenting with an ex-wife can certainly be difficult -- especially if the father and mother don't get along. This being said, parenting is something that doesn't end at a certain age. A father's role is not over in his son or daughter's life once he or she reaches the age of 18. This means co-parenting also continues on, which is why it's important for both parents to be able to work together from the very start to be able to keep a strong bond with their children.

Home detention, probation, for not paying child support

Paying child support is not something that is an option. Instead, most Missouri fathers who are paying child support are in a situation where they are court-ordered to do so. With this court order is a very specific amount that is typically due every week or every month. This means that if the amount is not paid, there can be criminal repercussions.

75 percent of children adjust just fine to divorce

There are plenty of parents who are arguing and very unhappy in their marriages, yet they continue to stay together thinking that it's in the best interests of the children. But, it turns out that what is really best for children is to be in a loving and caring environment, even if that means going back and forth between mom's house and dad's house.

Make sure to learn about finances after divorce

It's perfectly normal for in a marriage for there to be one person in charge of the bills. This spouse may be the one in charge of not only making sure things like a mortgage and electric bill are paid on time, but could also be the same person in charge of all of the family's budgeting. But then, what happens in the case of a divorce? What about that spouse who wasn't in charge of finances?

Update: Seal and Klum's divorce heats up

Back in January we posted on the fact that model Heidi Klum and musician Seal were separated and planned on filing for divorce. At the time, everything seemed rather amicable between the two -- but we did wonder if things would start to heat up when it came to child custody and other divorce settlement matters. As it turns out, the tables have indeed turned with news of Klum already in a new relationship with her bodyguard.
