Divorced And Penniless - Why It Can Happen To You

Copyright (c) 2005-2021

What you do not know can actually harm you badly. The truth is that even as you continue to regularly read about those hefty divorce settlements celebrities are getting all the time, some divorce lawyers are fighting back - and succeeding. The result is that you could end up not only nursing the emotional wounds of a divorce but also having to cope with a situation where you are virtually penniless.

It is happening all the time these days and you can be sure that the double burden of juggling the financials and your bruised emotions is definitely something you do not want to go through. There is really only one thing you can do, and that is prepare for divorce now rather than later. Just like a nation fully prepares and arms itself to the teeth for war in peacetime, every woman should prepare and arm themselves fully for divorce while still in a happy marriage.

Most nations who prepare well for war often find that they do not have to fight and in the same way a smart woman who prepares for any eventuality of divorce will often find that because of her preparations, divorce can be avoided.

Many good-natured wives currently happily married do not even want to think of the prospect of a divorce. These women are sitting ducks for a situation where they could suddenly find themselves out in the cold, penniless and divorced. That equally good-natured loving husband of many years is no different from other loving husbands who have suddenly and casually made the totally unexpected remark one evening after supper, "I want a divorce."

Can you imagine starting to make your plans at that time? When the shock alone can take you several days to recover from? You will hardly be in a position to think clearly enough to hire the right attorney to fight for a decent settlement. This is exactly the sort of scenario that can land you into big financial trouble.

All through the history of mankind, women have been known for their ability to prepare for events. The wise modern woman will also prepare and protect herself for any situation that will arise in the event of her marriage taking an unexpected turn.

The Family Does Not End with the Marriage
Written by: Cathi Adams | Distributed: 2008-12-01 | Word Count: 504 | Page Views: 3540 | Votes: 7 | Rating: 1.43
One of the most painful aspects of divorce is how to tell the children that Mommy and Daddy will not live together anymore. Children are the innocent victims when a marriage falls apart. Your feelings toward your soon-to-be-ex may be bitter and even vengeful. Your children's feelings are not the same. Daddy is still Daddy, no matter what. Your children have every right to love each parent unconditionally. Even though that marriage ends, the family you created is forever. Your ex will forever be tied to you through the children.

Lisa knew that something had changed with her husband. He was working longer hours, was tense and showed little interest in her or the children's activities.

When it comes to marriage, a woman never dreams of the worst case scenarios. The dream-like qualities of a 'Happily Ever After' life keep all the negative outcomes pushed well back in her mind. However, divorce is becoming much more common as the years pass. It isn't unusual for a woman to find herself 5 years, 10 years or even 15 years into a marriage, only to be faced with separation and, eventually, divorce.

I was recently taking in a horror movie with my son when he suddenly made an amazing remark, 'It's not so scary anymore, because we've seen the killer.' How true that statement is in every aspect of life. True horror and real fear is really the fear of the unknown. The less we know about the thing we fear, whatever it is, the scarier it is. This seems to be the main secret that those folks who make horror movies use so effectively.

Divorce: Women Need Strong Support Systems
Written by: Cathi Adams | Distributed: 2007-06-07 | Word Count: 518 | Page Views: 5869 | Votes: 15 | Rating: 2.73
Mothers know best, so they say, but when a woman is going through a divorce, it takes more than 'mum' to lend a helping hand. In fact some women say that when their marriages are in trouble, they don't necessarily turn to their mothers for counselling. They would much rather seek the advice of a marriage therapist or advisor because they seek independent insight and opinion on why their marriages are about to crumble.

If a woman is not physically or sexually abused by her husband, people generally conclude there is no abuse. But women should give this question more serious thought. Abuse need not be verbal, physical or sexual. These types of abuse are sufficient grounds to head straight for the divorce courts because a physically or sexually abusive partner needs professional help.

When did Americans stop taking responsibility for their own actions? My friend agreed that the slide began in the late 1960's with the growth of the drug culture. But he was quick to emphasize that although the sixties began the slide, the real sharp slope did not arrive until the 1990's. Along about 1993, the slide began to sharpen. It was not until early 1998 that the slope became a steep cliff.
