Kentucky residents may be interested to hear that President Trump is playing a role in some couples' decisions to end their relationship. According to polling firm Wakefield Research, 10 percent of couples surveyed said that they were divorcing or breaking up because of their differing political views. Millennials were divorcing or breaking up at a rate of 22 percent because of that reason.
Furthermore, 22 percent of the 1,000 participants said that they knew of a marriage or relationship that was negatively impacted by Trump's election. A divorce attorney agreed with the results of the survey, and she says that such disagreements may stem from narcissism or obsessive compulsive disorder. Essentially, individuals believe that their partners must agree with them when it comes to their political or worldview to be in a successful relationship.
The end of a marriage or relationship may be an emotional event for many people. However, if an individual feels as if he or she is better without his or her current partner, it may be worthwhile to talk to an attorney. Those who are married may be able to learn more about their rights during a divorce as well as how a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may impact the divorce settlement process.
If a couple had a prenuptial agreement as to how property was to be split at the end of a relationship, it may be enforceable. Family law attorneys will tell their clients that such an agreement should be negotiated and signed well in advance of the wedding date to preclude a later challenge that one of the parties was coerced into signing it.
