Sadly, not everyone would stay together, although they have married for many years. In fact, modern people are more likely to marry more than once throughout their lifetimes. Changes of values in the society are the likely reason for this phenomenon. It is quite natural for divorced couples that each harbours some amount resentments towards the other. This can happen if both individuals are emotionally hurt during the divorce process.
There are other large problems that they need to solve too, such as the distribution of asset. Fair practice is necessary to avoid one side become even more aggravated with the current condition. Many husbands may think that they work harder to accumulate assets and they are unwilling to share half of them to their wives.
This is particularly true if the wives are considered as the guilty party. The court could provide some solutions for this problem and each party should have an interest to achieve fair sharing of all assets.
Children are another significant factor that divorcing parents need to consider. Mothers usually take care of their children most of the time, so they should get adequate amount of assets to keep children well-fed and well-educated. Due to this situation, arguments related to children could occur between these couples.
It is commonly thought that children are better off if they stay with their mother, so husbands should make sure that they have enough assets, for the sake of their children. Although husbands may be unwilling to give up a sizable portion of their assets to wives who hold a grudge against them, they should think about the welfare of their children.
The court should be able to view this situation fairly and keep its neutrality. The judge should prioritize the interests of the children and find ways to ensure that all assets are fairly allocated. If the judge thinks that one party is better in taking care of the children, he could award more assets to this particular party. Judge also decides on the visiting rights and could implement some limitation if the divorced couple is a bit too deep into disagreement.
Before resorting to arbitration phase, divorced couples should try to solve as many as problems on their own. The courts can decide their fate, so it is important for any of them to behave accordingly. The whole deal should complete much easier if they can agree on many more things. Children will also not feel that they are being torn by two parents that they love equally.
They could sense of respect, if the couple tends to bad mouth one another. In many cases, children are the real victims of any divorce, because parents could move on with their lives more easily and possible even re-marry. On the other hand, step-parents are not replacement of their original parents and conflicts could occur when parents re-marry. Broken home children will have poor start in their lives. They could end up feeling less secure and uncomfortable.
