Michigan men struggle with divorce as much as women

Many women in Michigan initiate divorce, and even though both parties may know it's coming, often the person that did not initiate the divorce can feel betrayed. While women are more likely to have a support group to help them through the process, often a man does not and is left to deal with loneliness and feelings of inadequacy on his own.

Cohabitation prior to marriage no longer an indicator of divorce

Traditional data has led many sociologists and cultural experts to conclude that couples who live together before marriage are more likely to divorce. New information is coming to light, however, that could spell good news for pairs throughout Michigan who lived together before saying "I do." Moving in before marriage is a less reliable predictor than it has been in the past.

Having a change of heart in February

Going through a divorce in February can be difficult because of Valentine's Day. The stores are filled with heart decorations, restaurants offer special meals for couples and everyone seems to be talking about love. So it may be surprising to learn that February is the most active month for divorces. October is the least active month.
