Men and women are different and divorce is just one more way this is acknowledged.  DMK has facts about women and divorce to shed some light on the reasons why you and your spouse may feel very different about the same divorce.

The best legal and emotional settlement starts with knowing the problems you could face during the process of divorce.  

Many things happen in the wake of a divorce.  Most of us are still suffering the heartbreak, frustration and anger associated with a break-up while we deal with the legal aspects that leave us with half or less of everything (including time with our kids).  We no sooner get through one situation and another challenging one occurs.

I was in my early 40's when I divorced.  I had 3 children, ages 12, 14 and 16 along with a home mortgaged 90% of it's value.  I worked the entire time I was married except for 6 weeks maternity leave for each child.
