Marriage is a time of love and joy and an occasion fondly celebrated by couples all over Arizona. In the beginning, feelings of happiness and excitement abound. However, people often change as they age, and differences between spouses can lead to separation. What were once positive, loving emotions may eventually turn into feelings of uncertainty, loneliness and despair. Celebrities are often looked upon differently and held to a higher standard, but they too can struggle with separation and divorce.
The divorce of a high-profile, celebrity couple has been making headlines across the country. According to reports, Jennifer Garner recently filed to have her divorce finalized from her husband Ben Affleck. Reports say that Garner requested to have a private judge assigned to her case in order to accelerate the divorce proceedings.
The couple were married in 2005 but publicly announced their separation in 2015, only one day after their 10th wedding anniversary. However, the divorce proceedings have been delayed for Affleck to work on his sobriety. The estranged couple has three children: ages 6, 9 and 12. Reportedly, they requested joint physical and legal custody of the children.
These days, about half of all marriages are ending in separation. Divorce is never easy, and couples going through this process can experience a myriad of emotions that can cloud an individual's ability to make sound and rational decisions. Those in Arizona who are facing a divorce could benefit from discussions with a legal representative. A knowledgeable attorney can answer questions and provide much-needed guidance during this difficult time.
