Finances can be a top contention between married couples.

Many divorcees would advise Massachusetts women to become more involved in the family finances early in a marriage to avoid unexpected economic repercussions.

However, with the guidance of a legal professional, these seemingly insurmountable issues are not just manageable -- they're the first step for many toward realizing a more positive future post-divorce.

Lessening blows to retirement savings in divorce asset division

For older Massachusetts couples, the end of their marriage often packs a one-two punch. Not only is their relationship ending, but along with that goes the carefully laid plans and savings for retirement.

Thankfully, however, this doesn't necessarily have to be the case, as there are some possible strategies that may soften the financial blows.

Divorce: A little financial planning now can go a long way later

No one goes into a marriage thinking about the day it might end. However, since Massachusetts is said to have one of the lowest divorce rates in the nation, it never hurts to be prepared.

Hostile behavior, not the divorce itself, linked to illness

As is often the case, the details can make all the difference. A newly released study linking psychological stress during childhood to illness may have some divorcing Massachusetts parents in a panic. The key, however, seems to be whether the divorce was cooperative or non-cooperative.

When it comes to such complex issues as divorce, the more facts someone has, the better.
