Considerations when contemplating a prenuptial agreement

Thumbnail image for 29100123_S.jpgThere is a good chance that no matter where you live, in Missouri or elsewhere, your life has been touched by divorce in some way. So if you are thinking about getting married or remarried, you may be wondering how a prenuptial agreement works and whether you should enter into one before taking your vows.

Missouri same-sex marriage may be law of the state in 2015

272775_S.jpgThe family law question of whether same-sex couples can legally marry in the state of Missouri continues to evolve. At the present time, the state does not recognize same-sex marriages. The issue has become clouded based on the apparent willingness of the municipal government in St. Louis to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and an ongoing lawsuit against the state by the American Civil Liberties Union seeking to overturn the ban on same sex marriage.

Same-sex divorce now possible in Missouri

23491565_S.jpgThe same-sex marriage issue has been taking on more significance in the U.S. for several years now. With many states moving forward with the legalization of same-sex unions, it was only a matter of time before Missouri family law attorneys would have to face a new challenge. That challenge is in the dissolution of same-sex marriages, or divorce.

How to broach a prenuptial agreement talk

28077698_S.jpgIt is almost wedding season in Missouri, as summer and early fall are some of the most popular times to hold the big celebration. That means more couples may be considering their future as a couple, and that may lead to discussions of a prenuptial agreement. Admittedly, this can be an uncomfortable topic. After all, who wants to think about divorce when you haven't even made it to the altar?

UMKC study: Forgiveness can overcome infidelity

21825642_S.jpgA recent study from the University of Missouri-Kansas City offers hope for married couples considering divorce because of a spouse's infidelity -- if the spouse who remained faithful to the marriage can find it in himself or herself to forgive the other.

University of Missouri study looks at divorce and social media

25320557_S.jpgSocial media websites have revolutionized the way we interact with significant others, friends, family members, and co-workers. Instead of writing a formal email, all you have to do on one of these websites is to open a chat box and type in a brief message. Responses to these messages typically come much faster than standard email. There is no doubt that social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, have changed the way we socialize in St. Charles, Missouri, as well as around the globe. However, not all of these changes are having a positive impact on our social lives.

The up-and-down divorce rate

13223006_S.jpgThe divorce rate is kind of like the unemployment rate. For you, it is either 0 percent or 100 percent, as you either have a job or you do not and you are either divorced or not. It can be a rather abstract topic for general discussion, or it can be intensely personal. So, questions of whether the divorce rate is going up or down can seem rather academic, but they are useful.

Could a prenuptial help your marriage before you are married?

7833690_S.jpgPrenuptial agreements are like insurance. No one likes paying for insurance, but when your home is damaged in a storm, or car wrecked in a crash, it sure can come in handy. The same can be said of a prenuptial agreement. The difficulty with a prenuptial agreement is both raising the issue with your future spouse and conceiving in your own mind of the need for one.

Does divorce drive the economy?

20235647_S.jpgOne of the "benefits" of the Great Recession was the reduction in the divorce rate. Of course, whether you view the divorce rate as a "bad" may be a function of how happy you are in your marriage. If you are in a marriage that has soured, and are now looking for a way out, you may find a reduction in the divorce rate as the true "bad."
