While couples tying the knot in Texas often have visions of being together forever, there are many potential sources of stress that can have a big impact on marital relationships. The biggest one, according to a survey of more than 2,000 adults, is money. Not surprisingly, couples who are pretty much in sync financially are less likely to split because of money issues. Conversely, spouses with significantly mismatched credit scores are more likely to separate within five years of saying, "I do."
Now that you and your spouse are divorcing, you are concerned about your finances. In particular, you worry about spousal support and alimony. Whether you are concerned about paying spousal support or receiving it, this major issue will no doubt have a significant impact on your future.
