Effects of Divorce on Young Adult Relationships

We as a society and culture make a lot of noise about the effects divorce can have on kids. Whenever a couple with children divorces, the kids (often rightly so) become the focal point of the divorce. Who gets primary custody? How is visitation arranged?

Focus on Children Can Make Divorce Smoother

Many couples avoid divorce and stay in bad, even rotten, marriages because they feel obligated to stay together for the sake of their children.

The owners of Greenwich Village restaurant Agave have erupted into all-out divorce war…over the family dog. And this isn’t even where the issue gets really odd.
