Being a parent or teenager can be tough enough without the added stress of a divorce. The teenage years are already a time when a child is transitioning into an adult, and they may not always want to do what their parents ask of them. Furthermore, divorced parents in Illinois may have to contend with a lack of communication with the child's other parent. Therefore, it can be easy to make mistakes raising a child.
When you decided to end your marriage, you probably went through many emotions, including panic and fear. You want to know how you will get on financially after the divorce.
According to data maintained by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it's becoming increasingly common for wives in Illinois and throughout the U.S. to earn more money than their husbands. Roughly 38% of wives are bringing home more income than their husbands, and that dynamic can cause problems in a marriage. Some research indicates that the risk of divorce increases and the likelihood of marriage decreases when the woman earns more than the man.
