Marriage is one of the world’s oldest institutions, designed to unite a man and woman into a single household that can reproduce. That is the traditional purpose for marriage and that continues today, and many parts of the world now recognize same-sex marriage as well. Same-sex households often adopt children. Meanwhile, it is also common in the 21st century for Americans to file for divorce, and a number of reasons may prompt a divorce, whether for a low-income household or a divorce for business owners. Some divorces, such as a divorce for business owners, may involve a lot of assets that both sides will fight over, and divorce lawyers may be hired by both sides. A messy divorce, whether a divorce for business owners or otherwise, may involve child custody lawyers and the child him/herself may speak up on where they want to live after the divorce.
