How a change in marital roles can lead to divorce

California couples who start their marriages with an equitable gender arrangement concerning work and career are more likely to stay married than those who go through a transition of roles. A Swedish study found that when a wife's career takes off after initially being largely responsible for child care and housework, divorce may be more likely.

Child support after adultery

There are many painful factors that can cause California couples to split up. When adultery leads to a divorce, however, tensions can run especially high. If the couple has children, matters can become even more complicated.

Some spouses have little input in financial matters

California residents who are getting a divorce and have had little experience managing the marital finances might have to learn about these matters for the first time. A study by UBS Global Wealth Management found it is not unusual for women to leave financial and investing decisions to their husbands. With the divorce rate for older couples doubling since the 1990s, this means that some people could be headed into retirement with little financial experience.

Asset division is easier with planning

California couples wanting to protect their finances during divorce might want to consider taking steps to limit fiscal damage prior to filing court papers. Keeping a sense of awareness and maintaining essential records can go a long way toward getting a fair monetary settlement for spouses who may consider themselves at an economic disadvantage during a marital break-up.
