Your Business Your Divorce Its Real

As a business development specialist, I always see the dedication of my business customers when developing their online businesses. Understanding this single minded dedication of what it takes to make an online business a success, it is important that you make sure you understand the impact a divorce can have on your business. You may have done all the work, but when it comes to divorce, Lisa you need to be smart and be aware of the divorce support you might need if you are contemplating divorce.

Contemplating Divorce

Divorce in the US is very real. Marriage is nice but unfortunately or fortunately in some cases, not everyone stays married forever. If you are contemplating divorce, you need divorce support so consider these divorce statistics from a recent report by Bowling Green State University's National Center for Marriage and Family Research (NCFMR).

The number of divorced and separated women in the US is on the rise.... report, titled "Marriage: More Than A Century Of Change" ... found that 15 percent of women in the U.S. are divorced or separated today, compared with less than one percent in 1920. Researchers utilized divorce statistics data from the National Vital Statistics, Decennial Census, and American Community Survey in making their assessment.

Divorce Statistics Vary

Also consider this statement from Wikipedia divorce - In 2002 (latest survey data as of 2012), 29% of first marriages among women aged 15–44 were disrupted (ended in separation, divorce or annulment) within 10 years. Beyond the 10-year window, population survey data is lacking, but forecasts and estimates provide some understanding. It is commonly claimed that half of all marriages in the United States eventually end in divorce, an estimate possibly based on the fact that in any given year, the number of marriages is about twice the number of divorces. Now some people dispute these divorce statistics about the connection between divorce and marriage.

Divorce statistics research from University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School indicates that age is a strong predictor when determining if a marriage is doomed for divorce or not. In the 1980s, 81 percent of college graduates who got married after the age of 26 were still married 20 years later as opposed to 65 percent of college grads who married before age 26. Hence these divorce statistics imply a strong connection between age and when , why divorce occurs.

What does all this mean for those contemplating divorce?

Regardless of whose statistics you believe in, when you are contemplating divorce, divorce support you will need because iin your busness life it becomes real and you are not a statistic. And you definitely do not want your online business becoming a negative statistic in the financial column as the result of inadequate divorce support.
