Divorce can end a business partnership as well as a marriage

When a marriage in Georgia comes to an end, both spouses may experience emotional and financial challenges. These challenges can be exacerbated when a high-value family or personal business is also involved in the divorce. A business is not only a significant financial asset but also a center of emotional and professional development for one or both spouses.

Major reasons why a marriage ends in divorce

Although many Georgia couples are committed to trying to make their marriage work, there is a high chance that they will end up getting a divorce. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 22 percent of couples will either get separated, divorced, or in some cases, end with the death of a spouse within the first five years of marriage. When it comes to separation or divorce, there are several reasons why this may occur.

When divorce is the answer

Georgia parents who are struggling with keeping their marriage together might wonder if divorce is the only answer. While most marriages go through times of stress, some are able to overcome it, while for others divorce might be the best option, particularly if the issues the couple is facing are affecting their children in a very negative way.
