Whether a marriage was short or lasted decades, filing for divorce can be an extremely hard decision. Although it may seem like someone who was only married a few years should have an easier go at it, it may actually be harder to let go because they have higher hopes for a happily ever after.
Readers may have heard that golf professional Jason Dufner and his wife Amanda separated in February of this year. They were married in May 2012. The divorce papers were filed by Amanda Dufner on March 16 stating that the couple had a "complete incompatibility of temperament" and that there was an "irretrievable breakdown of the marriage."
Just recently, the two apparently reached a divorce agreement. Per the agreement, Amanda will get $2.5 million while Jason will get to keep two homes that are located in Alabama. The final ruling on the divorce settlement was expected to happen sometime this month.
It is unclear whether the two had a prenuptial agreement in place. In situations where one of the two spouses makes significantly more money coming into the marriage, a prenuptial agreement may be extremely useful and important. While it may be a hard topic to bring up when two people are in love and discussing their future, it can help both individuals avoid a messy divorce, if the two should end up splitting. For those in Florida who are considering putting together a prenuptial agreement, it is a good idea to discuss the matter with your lawyer.
