aging parents, Illinois family law attorney, marriage, Mevorah Law Offices LLC, fostering your marriage, marriage trendsTaking care of aging parents can be an incredibly stressful experience. It is not uncommon for it to take a heavy toll on you, your spouse, and even on your marriage. The married couple needs to strike a balance between their needs as a couple and the needs of aging parents.

Avoid the trap of overcaring, as one author puts it. This happens when well-intentioned loving people sacrifice their marriages in which they have invested years because they spent all their time and emotional energy on family caregiving responsibilities.

lombard illinois divorce attorneyIf you are a parent facing divorce, you may be overwhelmed with the idea of breaking the news to your children. Divorce is scary in itself, but throwing kids into the mix can make it even more difficult. However, it is possible to reduce the stress sitting down and having “the divorce talk” with your kids if you prepare correctly and follow a few simple steps.

When preparing for your conversation, you and your spouse should sit down together and write out exactly what you will say. It is important for the two of you to agree on what you will and will not tell the kids, especially if you are unable to give the speech together. Planning things out will help you to avoid sending your children mixed messages and adding even more chaos to the situation.

When you are planning things out, be sure to also plan when and where the talk will happen. For example, you do not want to break the news to your children the evening before someone’s big soccer game or at a time when you have relatives visiting.

The number of divorces in America dropped because of the recession, according to a recent article in the Washington Post. “With housing values depressed and jobs disappearing, divorce has become a luxury beyond the reach of some couples,” according to the Post. Divorce is expensive, and many estranged couples are choosing to stay together rather than weather the economic storm. Many couples, according to the Post, are going through a separation while still living together, and are unable to move forward. Divorcing Couple Arguing

This can result in all sorts of new tensions for divorcing couples in addition to the traditional tensions divorce has always spawned. As the Washington Post asks, “How do they start over if debt is all that’s left to divide?” The number of divorcing couples that went through bankruptcy rose since 2008, as the number of divorces decreased.

According to U.S. Census Bureau’s National Marriage Project and the Washington Post, “divorce rates showed a decline in 2008, the first year of the recession, when 838,000 cases were granted at a time when growing economic strain might have produced a spike in divorce.” In 1960, there were 9.2 divorces in the U.S. per 1,000 married women 15 and older. In 2008, there were only 16.9, despite the overall rise in percentage of divorced couples and massive spike of divorces during the 1980s and 1990s. Analysts suggest this is due to the economic downturn.
