Getting divorced at a young age

On Behalf of | Dec 2, 2019 | Firm News

When some people think of young married couples, they may envision a couple that is happily enjoying their relationship and youth. However, this is certainly not always the case, and young people face many pressures (from financial issues related to student loan debt to the inability to conceive or purchase a home, just to name a few). Sometimes, these pressures can be so significant that they place a lot of strain on a relationship, causing a marriage to fall apart. Young marriages may also come to an end for many other reasons, including infidelity, drug addiction and so on.

Filing for a divorce as a young adult can be especially tricky for certain reasons. Some may not have much familiarity with the legal system and they may be unsure of how to deal with various family law matters, from custody disputes to the way in which their marital property will be split up. Others may be facing intense financial pressure and they may think that getting a divorce is too expensive. Furthermore, many young couples have not been married for very long and they may feel a lot of pressure to stay in the marriage (especially from loved ones who helped pay for a wedding, for example). However, young people should not feel stuck in a bad marriage because of their age, their financial problems or any other factor.

If you are thinking about getting for a divorce at a younger age, it is essential to review your options. Moreover, since you are young, you may have a bright future ahead and plenty of time to rearrange your life after a failed marriage.
