The overall divorce rate in America has declined in recent years, but the divorce rate in Ohio and across the country among those aged 50 and over has significantly increased in recent years. Since those divorcing in their 50s and 60s are nearing retirement age it makes sense that divorce could have a significant impact on retirement finances. The impact on happiness and finances can be positive and negative.
When you're not married but want to start a family, you need to take steps to protect the integrity of your family unit. Fathers, in particular, must take special steps to guarantee their parental rights in Ohio. When they are not married, there is no assumption that they are the father of a child (after all, the only obvious biological parent would be the mother).
Marriage and divorce can be looked at as two sides of the same coin. Marriage, when flipped on its head, can lead to a divorce. One of the most common causes of a marriage leading to divorce in Ohio is a misunderstanding or deception regarding a couple's finances.
