Defending What Matters Most

4 questions young people need to consider when divorcing

Sometimes, couples quickly figure out that their marriage is a mistake. When you're in your 20s and 30s, you know that you have plenty of time to start over -- which makes divorce seem less intimidating.

But divorce at any age can be complicated -- even when you're young. Here are some of the things that you need to keep in mind if you're thinking about divorce before age 40:

1. What does your prenuptial agreement say?

Millennials have largely embraced prenups like no other generation before them. If you and your spouse signed a prenup, it's time to get it out and take a look at the terms. You don't want to trust your memory, and the prenup will guide everything from the division of your assets and business interests to issues of spousal support.

2. What have you been posting on social media?

The temptation to vent about your frustrations with your spouse can be huge -- but you never want to post anything online that you don't want to hear repeated in court. If you can't trust yourself to stay quiet, take a social media break.

3. Are you prepared financially?

Divorce is costly. You need to prioritize your debts, pay off your joint credit cards and look for ways to save money. By focusing only on what's important (rather than fighting over something like the wedding dishes that you've never really used), you can minimize the expenses you have and move on faster.

4. Are you practicing self-care?

It's easy to overlook your mental and physical health when you're going through a divorce. Make sure that you find social support, talk to a therapist and take breaks when you need them. Focusing on the future can help you stay above it all.

If you've been considering divorce for a while now, maybe it's time to find out what steps you should take to protect yourself and your future.
