A once popular singing couple, known as the Captain and Tennille, have decided to end their decades long marriage. The two were most popular in the 1970s with songs focused on how love would "keep us together." Evidently, those days are gone.
Family law issues such as child and spousal support are not limited to married couples. Unmarried couples may have children together over which difficult problems arise, and in some cases, the dispute is over having children to begin with. In a case involving a professional football player, one woman is alleging he took actions to encourage her to abort their child. She is now filing a lawsuit for damages and expenses.
A doctor who worked as a surgeon and researcher at a cancer center in Houston, Texas, for over 20 years has been accused of installing spying software on his estranged wife's computer. He allegedly did this with the aid of a computer specialist while the couple was in the middle of divorce proceedings. The software used is known as eBlaster and is not hard to obtain. It can be purchased online for as little as $99.
Divorce can be complicated, and when a couple has children, those complications can extend far into the future. Even couples who attempt to communicate and make the best of any situation may deal with difficult problems such as child support and custody. When communication falls by the wayside, it can result in situations that are not in anyone's best interest.
When a couple in Texas is in love and just about to get married, often the very thought of the possibility of the marriage ending at some time in the future might seem like heresy. The stark reality, however, is that about half of all marriages do end in divorce. Additionally, even those that don't, do end at some point because of death. Given those two facts, a reasonable and prudent thing to do is to have a prenuptial agreement.
