Predicting divorce

There is no way to determine with complete accuracy which Arizona couples will get divorced. However, social scientists have determined that there are certain factors that can determine who may be more likely.

Sometimes divorce is the best option

When Arizona residents get married, they usually do so with the intention of spending a lifetime with their partners. However, for some couples, the periods of strife within the marriage might seem overwhelming, and the option to divorce might be something they begin to consider.

Relationships that begin online could be more stable

People in Arizona who met online might have more stable relationships than those who met offline. One study used a model to predict that marriages that were the result of using online dating sites would last longer than those in which couples met in other ways.

Making a decision to divorce

The decision to end a marriage can be a difficult one. However, there may be a few situations that could lead people in Arizona to conclude that divorce is the best option.

Tax changes for people who divorce

The end of a marriage leads to many Arizona couples feeling anxiety and uncertainty for the future. Divorce affects their living arrangements and finances. They will need to find ways to adjust to their new lifestyles. They will also be facing a variety of income tax consequences and changes.

Alimony payments can be tax-deductible

Arizona couples whose marriages are ending can benefit from arranging to treat spousal support in specific ways in order to make the payments tax-deductible. The subject is the source of frequent disputes between the IRS and divorced taxpayers, but there are ways that people paying alimony can help to ensure their payments are properly deductible.

Many women leave marriage at a financial disadvantage

Dissatisfaction and other emotions drive people to seek divorces in Arizona. However, the decision often inflicts more lasting financial damage on women than men. Due to the gender pay gap and other factors, women may have limited resources when they begin their newly single lives.

Prenuptial agreements may be a good thing

Arizona residents who are planning to get married might be concerned when their partners want them to sign prenuptial agreements. Discussing one does not mean that the partners are planning for their marriages to fail and may offer benefits to the marriages and both parties.
