One might find it odd for a family law (aka divorce) blog to post a link to a study that highlights the positives of staying married. But family law attorneys are not there to make someone get divorced; they are there to help guide a party through the process and advocate for a party only after the party has decided to proceed with the dissolution (divorce).
According to the New York Times article, the study concludes “that being married makes people happier and more satisfied with their lives than those who remain single – particularly during the most stressful periods, like midlife crises.”
If you can work out any potential “irreconcilable differences”, we encourage that. If you don’t think you can, the family law courts and family law attorneys are available to assist.
