Is Nagging Really the Number One Cause of Divorce?

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal this week, nagging is one of the primary causes of divorce.  Also, the article suggests that nagging is more common than adultery and that women are more responsible for nagging than men!  Check out the article for yourself at 

Look, even though I am a man, I cannot defend "my kind" by simply agreeing with this article's conclusions!  First of all, as Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we find that there are many other more prominent causes of divorce, including money issues, control issues, and lack of communication.  Also, we believe that men are just as prone as women to nag or complain about their spouses!

What do you think!?

Celebrity Marriage and Divorce: Jerry Seinfeld

Last evening, I enjoyed a live concert performed here in Augusta, Georgia by one of my favorite comedians:  Jerry Seinfeld.  I believe the Seinfeld sitcom remains one of the best in television history!  During the question and answer session, following his hilarious stand-up act, Jerry pointed out that he has been happily married for twelve years.  Of course, that didn't prevent him from making a few funny jokes and observations about marriage and divorce! 

To paraphrase Jerry, he observed that marriage is about two people trying to get along without saying, "I hate you!"

As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we often hear from folks who, for many different reasons, couldn't accomplish that goal.  But maybe Jerry was right about marriage and divorce!  What do you think?

I noticed from Jerry Seinfeld's website that he is touring the entire country with his act.  If he comes to your area, you should really go and check it out!

Since it's a Friday, (and it is Friday the Thirteenth, at that!), let's keep things light by talking about another one of my favorite movies dealing with divorce!  The movie is One Fine Day, a really good 1996 comedy film about a budding romance between two single, working parents, played by two fine actors, George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer.  Ms. Pfeiffer was also the executive producer of the movie.

Have you seen this movie?  What are some of your favorite movies dealing with divorce?

Divorce and Your Health

As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we often see many ways in which a divorce can impact peoples' lives.  One way involves your health.  Many women (and men) reportedly suffer from stress-related illnesses both during and following their divorces.

For example, according to various reports, Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria has recently admitted that, following her divorce from basketball star Tony Parker, she experienced a significant weight-loss problem.  But she added that she has overcome this problem through a new diet and exercise program.

You can overcome your problems following a divorce, too!
