The divorce rate among American celebrities is higher than those of the average people. There are many reasons why this is so and these include age and cultural differences, narcissism attitude, busy schedule and infidelity.
Couples who decide to end their marriage should always get a legal counsel to help them file their divorce. Consulting a divorce lawyer will help make things easier not only for you and your partner but for your children as well.
Where children are involved, it is still the responsibility of the both parents to discuss the situation with the kids and assure them of your unceasing love and support them. If possible, spouses should also prioritize how they’re going to divide their time with the children.
