Marriage is not necessarily for everyone. In fact, there are plenty of couples in Missouri who live together, share living expenses and have children, yet are not legally married. Of course, there is nothing wrong with these arrangements at all. However, when children are involved -- and the parents split up -- it can quickly become complicated.
There are certainly signs of trouble in the divorce process when each side cannot agree on the stipulations of a divorce. For example, if a Missouri father is not willing to only have every other weekend visitation rights or pay out thousands of dollars in alimony, but his soon-to-be ex-wife is insistent on these things, this could be a sign the two will end up having to go to court to reach an agreement.
Like is the case with any Missouri divorce, there are two sides to every military divorce. While in some cases couples were married for more than 20 years before getting a divorce, in other cases spouses got married early and divorced early.

At the time many claimed men were routinely being overlooked when it came to family law decisions.
