Is violence a reason to divorce?

Some couples simply know when it is time to bring a marriage to a close, but for other married couples in Oregon, the decision is not always so clear. The confusion can be quite understandable, especially as most couples walk down the aisle with the intention of fully intertwining their life with that of their spouse. However, no matter a couple's intentions at the time of marriage, there are some warning signs that might indicate that a divorce is the healthiest option for everyone involved.

Divorce bad for your health? Not so fast, researchers say

There may be no limit to the amount of myths and untruths that abound concerning divorce, but a group of researchers may be able to put one popular myth to rest. It has long been believed that a divorce can negatively impact a person's health, and while that may be true to a certain extent, the real impact is hardly notable in the long term. Oregon couples who might have been putting off divorce for fear of suffering ill health might want to pay attention to the results of this recent study.

Can't find your ex? Alternatives exist to serve divorce papers

Most people use Facebook to post pictures of their children at the zoo or share recently read articles with their friends, but one woman recently found a unique way of utilizing the social media site. Unable to track down her husband in order to serve him divorce papers, she took action by making an unusual request to the judge, who then approved the service of divorce papers through Facebook. Although this decision was made outside of Oregon, it could have significant implications for alternative methods of delivery in the future.

In some instances, divorce is in the best interests of the child

Oregon parents may sometimes be inclined to avoid divorce for the sake of their children.
