Studies find stability in relationships begun online

While some Kansas residents may have heard that online dating is mostly for casual relationships, studies actually show that relationships that begin online may be more stable and long-lasting than those that do not. Two economics professors used modeling to predict how relationships starting online would progress compared to those that started offline and found that the ones starting online lasted longer.

Factors the increase the risk of divorce

Although making a marriage work can be difficult for Kansas couples, there are some risk factors that may make it more difficult for some than others, according to a variety of studies. Although many of the factors are out of both individuals' control, taking steps to strengthen the relationship may help it last.

When divorce is the right choice

For couples in Kansas, choosing to divorce can be an extremely difficult decision. However, there are certain situations in which getting a divorce may be the only choice for individuals who want to make sure that they and their children are able to live a fruitful life.

Divorce, older adults and protecting retirement

Kansas residents who are 50 and older might be more likely to get divorced than their younger counterparts, and they may be more likely to do so than others in their age group were in previous decades. So-called "gray divorce" has doubled since the 1990s, and although the rate is dropping overall, this is not the case among older adults. Unfortunately, because this age group is closer to retirement, there is less opportunity to recoup losses from a divorce.

When business agreements are broken

The days of a handshake and the bond of one's word are long gone in most business arenas. Even in your small business, you probably found out quickly that an agreement made without a contract is often an agreement that doesn't exist. It's not that people are dishonest; it's more that people don't always understand the terms they agree to. Sometimes the circumstances change, and without a written agreement, it may be difficult to alter the terms fairly.
