Study finds women may be more apt than men to initiate divorce

The reasons behind the end of a marriage are as varied as the relationships themselves. Some couples may cite infidelity as a reason for divorce.

Divorce often brings some abrupt and often confusing changes to a young child's life. The child will go from living in a two-parent household to spending time with each parent separately instead.

Parents in a toxic divorce may do whatever they feel is necessary to keep the other parent from having access to their children. This is a dangerous situation that may lead a parent to abduct the child out of Gig Harbor or even out of the nation. A custodial parent may wrongly abduct his or her child to keep the other parent from exercising his or her visitation rights, or the noncustodial parent may wrongly abduct his or her child, refusing to return the child to the custodial parent when his or her visitation period is over.
