Relationship issues that only tend to get worse

When love blossoms, St. Clair Shores, Michigan, couples race towards marriage. When love withers, those couples race towards divorce. In the latter case, the couples are less concerned with each other's welfare and more concerned with taking care of their own, expressing their concern in the form of pursuing marital assets. Those assets can include retirement plans, which often need to be approached in a special way, using something called a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO).

This statistical fact prompts many wise men and women to secure a premarital contract before getting married as a necessary way of preventing being financially eviscerated by divorce.
