Divorce by the decade seems like an odd way to call the shots to identify the risks for a marriage. For years, it seemed like the longer you were married or the longer you waited to get married, the better.

Curiously, not only are these basic assumptions mistaken, but also the premise that all divorces face mostly the same financial issues.

The factors of each vary considerably by your age and should influence what’s most important to you.
