If you’ve been married for over seventeen years, you may be designated as being in a long-term marriage. What does this mean to you? It means that court-ordered mandates such as alimony, child support, and asset division can be dramatically affected upon divorce.
There are many reasons why long-term marriages end. Financial changes cause hardships, empty-nest syndrome opens unresolved issues, boredom leads to infidelity, and lack of communication paves the way for unending arguments.
As cultural ideas of long-term relationships shift among those over 35, and individualism becomes a more dominant mindset, many people no longer believe in ‘til death do us part.
