Is your marriage plagued by one or more of these issues?

If you're one of many spouses in Minnesota who are currently considering filing for divorce, there may be certain issues that have been determining factors in your decision. Whether you've been married less than five years or more than 25, it's helpful to confide in a trusted friend or family member who has gone through similar challenges in marriage, as he or she can provide encouragement and support as you make life-changing decisions about your own relationship.

Later marriages and asset protection driving use of prenups

Members of the millennial generation in Minnesota and nationwide get married at later ages than previous generations. As a result, they often enter relationships with individual assets that they want to protect if divorce should occur. These reasons appear to be driving more people to negotiate prenuptial agreements according to a survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. The respondents reported a 51% increase in millennial clients signing prenuptial agreements.

Study finds drowsy driving accident rate underestimated

People in Minnesota might be putting themselves in as much, or more, danger by driving while drowsy compared to getting behind the wheel when drunk. It has been difficult to establish the frequency of crashes related to drowsy driving because data often depends on self-reporting. However, a AAA study, which used different methods, estimates that drowsy driving factors into more than 9% of motor vehicle accidents. Over 50% of the drowsiness-related crashes took place after dark.
