Television shows often portray divorce as a bitter battle between two spouses who cannot stand to even be in the same room with each other. This situation certainly does exist, but that does not mean it is the only reality for divorcing couples.
The process of divorce can admittedly be stressful not only emotionally but also financially. In many situations, couples who are getting divorced resort to litigation to resolve their disputes. Unfortunately, the judge presiding over a divorce case may end up making decisions that are not personally favorable for one or both parties. This is why divorce mediation is growing in popularity in the United States, including in New Jersey.
In a surprising study by the University of Melbourne, couples who marry on special dates like Valentine's Day, 11/11/11, 9/9/99, or 12/12/12 are up to 36 percent more likely to divorce.
