If you are sharing parenting duties with a former spouse and desire to relocate for any reason-work, cost of living, or just a simple new beginning-you may have difficulty renegotiating your custody arrangement. Whether you have sole custody or you share custody, if you want to take your child or children with you when you move, expect a reevaluation of the custody arrangement.
If you've ever been through a break-up, you probably know how difficult it is to get over a former boyfriend or girlfriend. The process can take anywhere from weeks, to months, or, in extreme cases, years. Recovering from a break-up is made difficult by the fact that you need to redefine yourself as a single person. Having been in a relationship, you may need to become comfortable again on the singles circuit or regain your ability to bond with another person. These are difficult problems to overcome, but you can do it.
Not every divorce has to be a long, brutal fight in court. If you and your spouse are not on good terms, it may be tempting to take this route in order to make your ex suffer. Most people, however, are less concerned with revenge, and more concerned with keeping their legal fees low and moving on with their lives. If you're in this boat, you probably view the divorce process as a figurative bump in the road that is best moved on from as quickly as possible.
Marriage involves money. During your honeymoon, you probably won't be thinking about it. But after the honeymoon is over, the realization will inevitably hit. There will be bills to pay. There will be unforeseen expenses. And slowly but surely, you will come to realize that you and your spouse's finances are now integrated together. The question, though, is do you want to wait until marriage for this realization to hit?
Being rich changes everything. With the right finances, you can find yourself granted access to a lifestyle of which others only dream. Such a lifestyle often includes extravagant properties, exotic vacations, celebrity friends, and the regular occurrence of opportunities that would typically be deemed "once in a lifetime."
