Whether you have a beach house on South Padre Island, a cabin in the Hill Country or a quaint place somewhere else, you probably love your vacation home. If you are going through a divorce, though, you must divide your marital property with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. What happens to the vacation home?
People in Texas may be more likely to divorce in the summer months. There are a number of factors that may contribute to the spike, including the increased family togetherness that comes along with holiday trips and school vacations. According to research, divorce filings are most common in August and March. Some note that couples may notice more problems in their relationships when they go through more togetherness, whether during summer trips or the winter holidays. Others note that summer vacation from school allows kids' schedules to be rearranged with less disruption when parents separate.
