Do you believe in "Happily ever after" or "Until Death Do Us
From the time we are little girls, women are taught to believe in
the fairy tale union of a man and a woman who love each other.
Many women never let go of the fantasy, and when they find the
man they want to marry, the end caption on their lives seems like
it will be, "And they lived happily ever after." Unfortunately,
statistics show that at least 50% of all marriages end in
divorce. Some women are left without important job skills and
barely enough money to support themselves, much less several
I find it interesting that women plan for earthquakes and floods,
fire and medical emergencies, spending thousands of dollars to
insure themselves against catastrophic events that have low odds

marriage will be the one out of two that ends in divorce, but
when the signs begin to present themselves, planning for divorce
is as important as trying to save the marriage. Your future
depends on it. Let me ask you...
Do you know the answers to these questions?
1. How much does your husband make?
2. What does his retirement plan offer?
3. How much does he have in savings?
4. What are his investments?
5. Where are his investments?
5. What does the family owe on mortgage, business debt and credit
These are just some of the questions you need to find answers to.
Most importantly, you need to know these answers BEFORE you
announce your decision to divorce.
This information is essential to getting what you deserve in the
settlement, so don’t leave home without it.
So when it comes down to making the final decision to divorce,
quell any urge to scream "This marriage is over!" pack your bags
and slam the door on your way out. The final decision to
leave takes time, and to announce your decision also
takes time and preparation. With the right planning and
preparation, you can save money to pay the lawyer, fund your
living expenses, and give yourself a positive financial future.
