Age gap might be a risk factor for divorce, study says

A study has shown the risk of divorce increases as the age difference between couples becomes larger, The Atlantic reported on November 9.

The study analyzed the data from more than 3,000 recently married and divorced Americans, and learned that couples with even a one-year age difference were 3% more at risk of splitting up than couples who were the same age. A 5-year age gap may increase the likelihood of divorce to 18%, while a 20 to 30-year age gap increases the possibility of divorce from 95% to 172%. According to the report, the risk of divorce in couples with age differences is more likely due to divergences in culture and interests.

Married couples who are considering the possibility of divorce should seek the help of sensitive, dedicated, and experienced divorce attorneys who know how important it is for both parties to reach an amicable settlement.

Collins’ alleged child molestation recording may impact divorce

A leaked audio tape alleging to be Stephen Collins’ confession of sexual misconduct with underage girls could influence the outcome of a forthcoming divorce trial between him and his estranged wife, Faye Grant, an online report by CBS News stated on October 9.

Collins’ legal counsel blamed Grant for releasing the video to the media, claiming that she has been attempting to use the audio tape to extort more money from his client.

Divorcing couple Amber and Wiz to battle over custody

A report by the Mail Online on September 27 revealed Amber Rose is requesting full custody over her 19-month-old son Sebastian in the divorce papers filed against her rapper-husband Wiz Khalifa.

The rapper responded to the request by asking the court to grant him joint custody rights to their child. Amber reportedly filed for dissolution of marriage a day after she found her husband cheating with another woman at his home. Wiz, meanwhile, said he never cheated because he told his wife that their relationship was over weeks before she filed for divorce.

The 30-year-old model may receive more than a million dollar from the prenuptial agreement signed by the couple before they got married. In their prenup, Amber is entitled to $1 million and a monthly allowance of $5,000 from Wiz should they split.
