Every married couple has issues from time to time, but many couples, like some here in Sugar Land, have issues they simply cannot get past. No matter how hard they may try, it becomes apparent they can no longer live together as a married couple. Under these circumstances, divorce may be the best option for everyone involved.
At the beginning of their marriages, these Sugar Land couples probably enjoyed spending as much time together as possible. Sadly, over the years, they spent less and less time together. Now, they would rather be just about anywhere else than with their spouses. Any communications are those necessary in order to take care of the children, the house, the bills, and other daily or monthly issues that require their attention.
Perhaps at one time, couples in this situation attempted to work it out. Some couples try counseling, dating again or searching for some other way to try to fix the growing rift. However, when their problems resurfaced, they simply lost interest in repairing the marriage. Moreover, avoiding each other at least tends to reduce the amount of disputes that arise when they are together.
When a couple realizes that their relationship has been reduced to being legally bound roommates, they may decide that divorce is the best option. Even if they are able to agree on this and are willing to work together to come to a mutually satisfactory settlement, each of them needs to take steps to protect his or her rights. In addition, a thorough evaluation of the couple’s financial situation will be needed in order to make sure each party receives everything to which he or she is entitled under Texas law.
