According to research, March is the most popular month to file for divorce, maybe because couples want to get past the holidays and taxes (or maybe it’s just “March madness.”) This past March, however, we also began dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and self-quarantining. Most families have had to endure financial hardship, childcare issues and the inability to live life outside their homes.
Love aside, the impact of divorce in your 20s and 30s is quite a bit different than in your 40s and 50s.
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.
Most people believe that the relationship between age at marriage and divorce risk was almost linear: the older you were, the lower the chances of divorce. Curiously, not only are these basic assumptions mistaken, but also the premise that all divorces face mostly the same financial issues.
Divorcing couples can face enough agony as it is dividing up possessions and agreeing on custody of children, let alone splitting retirement assets.
Yet that nest egg often represents a divorcing couple\’s largest pot of money. And if the process for the division of those assets is not done properly, there can be a steep price to pay in taxes, penalties or an unintended amount of money going to an ex-spouse.
