Survey finds finances to be one main cause of divorce

There are many reasons why a couple chooses to separate. But there are some common elements that can cause rifts between married couples and Illinois couples who decide to divorce are no exception.

Most children are like little sponges -- they soak up whatever emotions are around them and they are also very in tune to what their parents are feeling.

In fact, parents can actually influence their children about how they view the divorce and what roles they believe they play.

Life insurance and divorce

The end of a marriage can be stressful for many estranged Illinois couples.

Getting older doesn't mean you've escaped divorce

Divorces didn't used to be as common as they are today. They might have been seen as a failure or as something that signals that someone did something wrong.
