Study examines link between career fields and divorce

A recent study presented by FlowingData found that jobs associated with science and math tend to have lower divorce rates than those associated with night life or transportation. Some jobs that tend to attract rural populations, including military careers, forestry, farming and fishing, also have lower divorce rates. However, nightlife and travel-related jobs in New Jersey and throughout the U.S. have higher divorce rates.

The importance of consistency for children after a divorce

When New Jersey parents of young children divorce, they may want to minimize the contact they have with one another. However, it is important that they work out consistent households rules for their children to follow as they move between households. This consistency is important to the children's well-being. Parents should remain flexible. While they may be unwilling to concede some points, they need to be able to compromise on others. A face-to-face sit down may be the best way to reach this compromise, and children can be included as well if they are old enough. Areas addressed might include video games, bedtimes and how children dress.

How to aim for success in mediation

Mediation involves a couple sitting down with or without their attorneys and attempting to create a divorce agreement. It can be an alternative to litigation in many divorces, but it is important for New Jersey couples to prepare for the process in order to have the best outcome. The first step is to get ready for what may be a more emotional experience than they anticipate. A person who has suppressed feelings of anger or sadness might find them coming up in mediation. It is fine to ask for a break in order to regain composure in this situation.
