Marriage is a solemn vow made at the altar of matrimony between two couples with the love they have for each other. Eventually, couples will live under one roof and with marital bliss begets children. To support and raise the family, both couples will labor hard to earn a living and subsequently acquires real and personal properties.
Other couples who are already financially well off while still single may brought into marriage their respective properties or possessions.
But sometimes in the course of the marriage life, the relationship of the couples may turn sour that the union develops into a state of incompatibility and irreconcilable differences. The result would be the parting ways, living in entirely separate lives. Yes, even if both are living separately, the marriage is still in effect whereby such a situation will bring more headaches and problems.
This is because the administration has not yet been settled much less the marriage dissolved. Another possible bitter issue that may arise after the marriage break up is that which pertains to the custody of the children. When the kids are still young, this is a sensitive issue to tackle especially if both parties are unwilling to compromise.
It could be that the woman may retain the custody of the children and initially, she would not allow the man the kind of visitation he wants. In marriage breakups, the woman always suffers the brunt from the loss of the breadwinner. As a repercussion, the woman encounters financial difficulties. When the woman suffers from this kind of problem, she has to deal with not only the financial side of the problem but a psychological torture as well.
The result of the marriage breakup is not just a single problem of parting ways between to people who no longer needs each other. The impact can be great for women especially when her economic standing is wobbly. What she needs is the dissolution of the marriage when it can no longer be mended. Of course, this dissolution should have a concomitant award of alimony to compensate for the cost of the breakup. Aside from the dissolution of the marriage, a just and fair settlement of their properties must be in place otherwise this may cause another dispute.
For couples who are similarly situated, you can consult and enlist the legal services of a lawyer seasoned in the handling of marital cases.
