Watch out for critical issues during a gray divorce

Divorce happens at various stages in life. It's a difficult, painful and complicated process. Choosing to separate after a long-term marriage is oftentimes the right decision for couples, but people have their fair share of worries.

Divorce later in life presents unique challenges. The longer the marriage, the more complex the issues.

Not every marriage in Ohio and across the country endure over the long term. Some statistics suggest that an many as 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. This leads to another more disturbing statistic, that over one million children a year become children of divorce. It is now widely believed that staying together for the sake of the children is not a good idea, but how divorced parents handle parenting post-divorce can be critical to how well children deal with the new family dynamic.

Co-parenting is a term heard more and more as parents try to deal with the new reality of parenting as separate but equal partners. While custodial parent arrangements still exist in many circumstances, where one parent has physical custody and primary care responsibilities, co-parenting is on the rise as parents recognize the value and importance of remaining involved in their children's lives. For co-parenting to be successful, the focus should be on the child or children and not on the prior relationship.
