Many different factors can lead to a couple splitting up, from disagreement over critical financial issues (such as a child's college education) or a couple simply becoming incompatible after years of marriage. However, infidelity, especially when someone is addicted to unfaithful behavior or has a lengthy track record of cheating, has caused many marriages to fall apart. When kids are involved, these divorces can be especially devastating for people to work through. If you are trying to find the courage to leave your spouse who has cheated on your repeatedly (or even on a single occasion), or you have been unfaithful and just found out that your partner wants a divorce, it is imperative to prepare yourself.
Whether a parent has to spend less time with their children, or someone struggles with the emotional impact of a divorce, there are all sorts of ways in which life can change when a marriage comes to an end.

As a result, it is crucial for people to do their best to prepare for the financial changes that may lie ahead as they approach their divorce.
