How Gen X Avoids Divorce

Your birthday means more than just the date on which you were born. The generation into which you were born can shape your political and religious thoughts as well as influence your opinions on important social issues. Every generation is made up of unique individuals and events. For Gen X, are those people that have historically been characterized as the generation without an identity? Perhaps the most easily identifiable thing about a Gen X’er is that they are more likely than any other generation to have parents that are divorced. Because of this fact many of these individuals work hard to avoid divorce.

Because members of Gen X easily remember their parents divorce, it seems easier to take steps to prevent their own divorce. Some common tactics in this regard include the following:

● Dating for longer periods of time before marriage.

● Getting married at an older age.

● Finishing college and starting a career before considering marriage.

● Waiting longer to have children after having gotten married.

● Being open to the benefits of therapy and counseling.

No plan is fool proof though, and divorces still happen. Making the decision to dissolve your marriage is tough. Before taking this significant step, it is critical to make sure the choice to get divorced is right for you. The issues that typically arise need to be taken into consideration when making the determination to end a marriage. These include issues of child custody and support, division of property, and how to handle visitation. If you are considering dissolving your marriage, call us today to learn more.
