We all know that men and women are different in several significant ways. Just walk down any self-help aisle at a local library or book store and you will see volumes of books on the subject, full of helpful hints on how to better understand the opposite sex. Knowing that men and women are wired differently may help you to understand how to approach your divorce case without conflict. If you are able to do that, you will be much more satisfied with your case and will be able to maintain a level of sanity that allows you to keep your stress level low. These results are priceless because the benefits to your emotional state and that of your kids is immeasurable when you are able to remain calm and happy.
Apart from the emotional differences between husband and wife, here are some interesting statistics on divorce and gender:
- Twice as many divorces are filed by women as are filed by men.
- In many states, custody is awarded to mothers a whopping 90% of the time!
- Men are more likely to remarry after a divorce than are women.
One of the most surprising stats is that men tend to have a more difficult time adjusting their emotions after a divorce. This may be a cause of why men remarry quicker, and could also be attributed to a man’s need for intimacy. It may also be a reason why once the divorce is imitated, men are more apt to try and reconcile rather than go through with the divorce. Regardless of your gender or reasons for divorce, you need to protect your assets and kids. Making sure property division is equitable and that the child custody and visitation schedule is fair is key. Being able to adjust to being single again is much easier when the divorce terms are satisfactory. We can help you transition from married to single, and make sure your rights are protected while doing so.
