Seem a little macabre? Divorce is actually a booming business. According to DivorceMag.com, over 10% of American adults are divorced. That number is up from 8% just seven years ago. The scariest part is this number: On average, 41% of first marriages will end in divorce. If you decide to tie the knot a second time, 60% of second marriages end in a legal split. This gets pricey too. The average contested divorce costs around $15,000, and can take between three to six months to fully complete.
If you're considering a divorce, but aren't ready to go down that path just yet. Wevorce offers some really helpful tips in their blog for absolutely free.
