It is no secret that many do not always get along with their in-laws. Many times, a mother-in-law is accused of being too prying, while a husband is accused of being too distant when it comes to his wife's parents. And while naturally the relationships with in-laws can become quite stressful, it also turns out that these relationships may have an impact on a couple's risk for divorce.
The economy has an impact not only on our wallets, but also sometimes on our decision to stay in our marriages. In fact, a recent study from Marquette University found that divorce rates actually decreased in the early years of the recession. However, now as the economy has started to rebound, there has been an increase in the divorce rate.
It should come as no surprise that during the divorce process it is quite natural and normal for a wide range of emotions to come up. Some husbands may feel guilty for filing for a divorce, while some wives may be angry that the marriage did not go as intended. Others may just regret that the marriage could not work out. However, what's important to keep in mind is that it is often these different emotions that end up influencing how a divorcing couple will negotiate with one another in order to reach some sort of a divorce settlement.
