How do you know it's time to call it quits on a marriage?

Marriages take all shapes and forms -- and what's right for one couple can be very wrong for another. However, unhappy marriages tend to have the same basic traits in common, no matter what else is going on.

There's no point in staying in a marriage that's doomed to fail eventually. Prolonging the agony doesn't help you -- or your spouse. The kindest thing for everyone is to stop putting energy into something that doesn't work.

Divorce happens for many reasons: Make sure you're ready;.;

The reason that the divorce rate stays so high in the United States is that there are many different reasons that people decide to end their marriages. No two situations are exactly alike. You may feel like your marriage is stable, and it may be for years, but it could fall apart eventually. You need to make sure you're ready if that happens, as it's a complex legal process and you need to protect your future.

To start, let's take a look at some of the main reasons that people split up:

  • They run into problems with money, such as not having enough to pay the bills or having conflicts over different spending habits.
  • One person is not faithful to the marriage and starts a second relationship. In some cases, both people do so.
  • They simply argue too much. All couples argue at times, but when that's the only thing happening, it erodes the marriage.
  • They have trouble with intimacy. It may disappear from the marriage entirely.
  • They change significantly. Young people may see serious personality changes as they grow up. Older couples may see physical changes, like sickness or weight gain.
  • The marriage does not meet their expectations. They want something that the other person is not able to provide or is unwilling to provide.
  • They never really were prepared to be married in the first place. They feel like it was a mistake, or they don't know how to adapt.

Chain reaction accident in Bryan County injures four

Driving in Georgia can be dangerous. The scenic open roads in the heartland can invite speedy driving, and there are more devices that can distract drivers than ever before. Often, drivers in a rush are not leaving the proper distance between them and vehicles in front of them.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating an accident involving five vehicles and injuring at least four people. The Richmond Hill collision occurred in the middle of the afternoon and backed up traffic southbound on Interstate 95 near Savannah well into the evening.

Informal negotiation process may make divorce easier

You are beyond ready to get divorced so that you can move forward with your life -- apart from your spouse. However, you feel apprehensive about going toe-to-toe with your future ex-spouse at a divorce trial.

The good news is, your divorce process does not necessarily have to be a contentious one. Rather than going through traditional divorce litigation, you and the other party can go through the informal negotiation process to resolve your divorce matters, like property division and alimony. Let's take a glimpse at what informal negotiation involves in the state of Georgia.

Can drivers in Georgia refuse a Breathalyzer test?

If a driver makes some basic mistakes like failing to notice a stop sign or swerving out of a traffic lane, a police officer may suspect that person of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Although that officer has the right to request a driver takes a breath alcohol test, the driver is not required to give it under Georgia law.

How do we know about the consequences of refusing a breath test?

3 ways to reduce your chances of getting hurt in a car crash

Driving wherever you want in your car – even across the country at the drop of a hat – is enormously convenient. But with this convenience comes the danger of getting hurt or killed in a catastrophic vehicle collision. For this reason, you need to make an effort to stay as safe as possible.

Here are three things that could prevent you from getting hurt in a collision:

The do's and don'ts for a gray divorce with adult children

Divorce can happen to any one of any age, though we often think of younger people when the subject comes up. However, one type known as "gray divorce" is becoming more common as the population ages. This is the term for people aged 50 and older who decide to divorce.

Gray divorce frequently involves adult children. Most people might think that since adult children aren't in need of financial child support and they can determine how and when to visit each parent without a custody agreement that divorce would affect them minimally. However, if you are a child whose parents divorced after you became an adult, you likely know that that isn't true. Experts have guidance for those who are part of a gray divorce.

How to cope with post-traumatic stress disorder after a car crash
