Recent years have marked a downward national trend in divorce, with 2019 marking the lowest divorce rate in 50 years (the CDC reports a rate of 2.7 per 1,000 population in 2019). But even with a divorce rate of 2.7 someone in the United States gets divorced every 42 seconds and less divorces do not mean less complicated divorces – whether a traditional single-income marriage model or both spouses working nine-to-five, ensuring each spouse is on equal footing in a divorce is a complex process.
At its core, marriage is a contract between two people agreeing to combine resources, divide major life responsibilities, and share life’s burdens as a team; and, cancelling that life-contract often means untangling years of unwritten contract terms and life lived.
