There's no denying the impact divorce, no matter when it occurs in life, can have on everyone in involved. This is especially true with older couples in Texas who decide to end a marriage. Research suggests that daughters of divorce are 60 percent more likely to untie the knot, and sons of divorced parents are 35 percent more likely to end their marriage. While the divorce rate has been on the decline among the general population, it's actually on the rise for couples 50 and older.
Parents in Texas who are approaching or going through a divorce, as well as those who've recently finalized a divorce, are wise to give some thought to their kid's upcoming school year. For children and parents, negotiating the logistics of school, friends and activities can get more complicated following divorce. By keeping a few things in mind, however, parents can be prepared when their kids head back to school.
