Marriage is an adjustment. After couples say their vows to one another, many spouses in Alabama must learn how to cohabitate with one another. In the first few years, some may decide that they are not compatible. Others may have several years -- even decades -- together and then decide that their marriage is no longer working for a variety of different reasons. In fact, Jeff and Mackenzie Bezos recently settled their divorce after 25 years of marriage.
Child custody terms can be hard to come to, especially if one parent believes that he or she is better fit to care for the kids than the other. In some cases, a parent may receive sole physical custody of the children during divorce, and the other parent may obtain visitation rights. While visitation can work to ensure that the noncustodial parent still sees the children, the details of the court order can greatly affect how that time is spent.
Many Alabama married couples have gone through some rough times in their relationships. In fact, it would likely be easier to find spouses who can relate to serious relationship challenges than those who might say they have never experienced any problems in their marriage. Before 2019 ends, hundreds of spouses will decide to divorce.
