In a divorce, there may be different ways to measure a positive result. For example, sparing minor children from additional upset might be a goal common to both parents.

They are also more likely to accept responsibility if the child is a boy. Those conclusions came after looking at data from a study published in Human Nature. In the United States, 40.6 percent of children were born to an unmarried couple in 2013.

However, as many North Carolina residents know, some marriages end in divorce, which leads to questions about marital property and division of wealth. In cases where one of the spouses has inherited money in a trust fund, the language of the actual trust might mean the difference between him or her being able to protect that wealth or having to share it with his or her ex-spouse.
