People get married every day in the Portland Oregon area, as well as everywhere else in the country. However, even though a wedding is almost always a happy occasion, the fact is about half of all marriages end in divorce. That means even though you don’t want to think about divorce, the chances are about 50-50 that your marriage will end sooner than you think.
Just like marriage, divorce happens every day. However, when it comes to ending your marriage, timing can make a big difference. A recent survey regarding divorce found that more and more couples that are unhappy in marriage are waiting for just the right time to end their marriage.
In other words, people know that it’s much easier to divorce when they’re already financially secure. It also appears that waiting till the kids have grown and moved away is a much more convenient time to end a marriage, as well. Another important thing to consider regarding the timing of divorce is a business. If you or your spouse owns a business and it’s about to take off financially, then some might want to get a divorce right away, or stall as long as they can, depending on which side of the equation they fall.
