Studies show the effects of online dating

Maryland couples who met through a dating service might be encouraged by some findings from research into the effect online dating has had on marriage, divorce and relationships. According to various studies, couples who met online may be happier and less likely to break up. Additionally, some researchers believe that online dating could benefit society by bringing more people together who are of different social classes, thereby helping to reduce prejudices.

Serious issues that may lead to divorce

Some Maryland residents might wonder whether they should try to keep working on their marriage or seek to end it. While people may want to keep a marriage together for the sake of the children or for other reasons, there are some instances in which filing for divorce might be necessary.

Types of domestic violence

When Maryland couples are in an abusive relationship, they could be experiencing domestic violence at the hands of their partners or spouses. While domestic violence can certainly include physical abuse, there are several other forms that all fit beneath the domestic violence umbrella.

How to save money in a gray divorce

While divorce rates in most age categories have declined over the years, for those aged 50 or more it has doubled since the 1990s. Many older Maryland couples are now facing what is called a gray divorce, and these can be very costly. Since it is more difficult to recover financially after a gray divorce, the financial outcome may have a significant impact on a person's standard of living for the remainder of his or her life.
