For military families, challenges can start when deployment ends

Military life can present families with many 20386335_S.jpgchallenges. A service member on active duty can face long stretches of time away from home. This separation can be all the more difficult if the service member is stationed in an area of armed conflict. Meanwhile, the family must learn to adapt to this absence, all the while worrying about their loved one's well-being.

You can break the cycle of domestic violence

5836840_S.jpgMaybe it started with a cruel remark or a loud demand. But over time, things escalated to frequent bouts of physical violence. Dealing with an abusive partner can be extremely frightening and emotionally draining. And the situation can even become life-threatening.

Do not be afraid to consider divorce

7471389_S.jpgDivorce has a negative connotation in society, implying that a marriage has failed or that the married couple could not put forth the effort required to make the marriage work. Despite this, divorce is not something that a married couple should avoid simply because of what society says. Here's the truth: people change, and marriages that were once happy may simply morph into a union that is no long viable for one or both parties involved. This is especially true for people in the military.

Dog allegedly stolen in property dispute

41890697_S.jpgWhen an unmarried couple decides to live together, it can be a very happy moment for the couple and could ultimately bring them closer. However, if the couple eventually splits, the resulting dispute of assets could be extremely problematic. Unless the couple kept detailed records of which assets belonged to whom, the split can devolve into an argument of one person's word against the other. In extreme circumstances, people may take matters into their own hands.

What practices should unmarried couples avoid?

14195176_S.jpgThere are a growing number of unmarried couples cohabitating in modern America, and regardless of how you may feel about the topic, the legal ramifications of such commingling are very significant. If unmarried couples do not approach their cohabitation correctly, the fallout if the couple eventually breaks up could have extremely negative side effects on both parties. It may be tempting to act as if you are married, but until you actually tie the knot, such behavior can be a detriment.
