Infidelity We know about the “dating” sites for those who are seeking to have an affair. And we know that sexting, hookup apps, and social media platforms have made it easy for people to connect with others in relatively quiet ways, even if they’re married to someone else. Technology has made it far easier for infidelity to occur. And even though everyone’s talking about infidelity, that doesn’t mean we’re all OK with the reality of it – clearly evidenced by the number of marriages that have ended because of an affair.

High Price of InfidelityEver reminisce about the “good old days,” when there were Beaver Cleaver families and white picket fences and mistresses who called the home phone and hung up if her paramour didn’t answer? Sounds quaint, but infidelity was a touch more difficult to perfect in the past. Today’s indiscretions are accomplished much more easily, often when people are sitting or lying right next to their spouse. With the ultimate cheating tools at your fingertips – smartphones and social media in particular – there has been an enormous rise in marital infidelity. It’s cheating made easy. But no matter how a person might go about being unfaithful to their spouse, the fact is that infidelity can be expensive, very expensive. And that’s before it might even lead to an equally expensive divorce. (more…)

Conscious UncouplingCelebrity divorces are big news, and when one famous couple is able to make their divorce even more interesting by giving it a new name, well that’s a situation worth investigating a little further. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin recently announced their split, and identified the end of their relationship as a “conscious uncoupling.” Can you do the same in your Michigan divorce? (more…)

Infertility and divorceCouples get divorced because of infidelity, because of addictions, because they’ve grown apart. Now, one more common reason that marriages end is because of infertility.

A new Danish study focusing on couples undergoing fertility treatments found that couples who are unsuccessful at conceiving a child after many years of trying are three times more likely to divorce than couples who do succeed. The grief of failed IVF lingers, with a Swedish study reporting that people continue to grieve three years after the unsuccessful attempts to conceive. (more…)

FiguringOutFutureIt’s easy to assume that people choose to cheat with a person who’s more attractive, thinner, sexier, or in better shape than their spouse. But this assumption is not always accurate, at least not 100 percent, and at least not according to Victoria Milan, a dating site for married people who want to have an affair. (more…)

When a couple decides to go their separate ways, they must always file a complaint for divorce. In the most basic terms, this filing alleges that there has been a breakdown of the marriage and that there is no reasonable likelihood that the relationship can be preserved.

So where does the “no fault” divorce come into play? By law, Michigan is a “no fault” divorce state, which essentially means that neither party is legally at fault regarding the dissolution of the marriage. While that sounds simple enough, the matter can get a little complicated. Jacob Femminineo explains in detail in this video that fault can indeed matter. If there is a definitive cause for the breakdown of the marriage, such as addiction or infidelity, fault certainly comes into play.

Watch this video to find out how the fault of one party can affect the divorce settlement, particularly the division of assets.
