In Michigan, many couples lead busy and often stressful lives. It can be hard earning enough to support a family. Yet this does not mean it is any easier for families with high earnings. Higher incomes often come with greater responsibilities, either at work or in your day-to-day life. As with any relationship, such stresses can put a strain on your marriage and your busy schedule may mean that you and your spouse begin to grow apart.
However happy your marriage was to begin with, perhaps you have found that things are simply no longer the same. It happens to many couples and there is no shame in feeling that it may be time to start again. It is unhealthy for both of you to remain in a situation where you are not happy. Sometimes a new beginning is the best way to get your life back on track.
Of course, there are several things you will need to consider, such as custody of your children, who will keep the house and how you will divide your other assets and property. The more you have, the more there is to sort out, so for high asset couples proceedings can sometimes be particularly drawn out and complicated.
