Divorce more likely if traditional gender roles change

Some California couples start married life in traditional roles commonly associated with their respective genders. Over time, however, circumstances might change. While growth in a marriage is generally a good thing, a shift in roles may increase the odds of divorce for couples that didn't start with a gender-equal marriage. This is the main takeaway from a Swedish study addressing this topic.

California couples who get a divorce likely find that the process can very stressful, especially where it pertains to how all of the assets and debts are divided. In situations in which there is student loan debt, both parties may be very concerned about how the debt will be split.

Divorce rates are changing, but what does it mean?

Perhaps at some point you've heard that approximately 50% of all marriages will likely end in divorce. This is a statistic often repeated by many people, but how much truth is in it?

How can you manage your loan payments on your own?
