Realizing that your marriage is heading towards divorce can be a confusing and overwhelming period of life.

Money isn't everything, but many things in life are easier for people with money. It doesn't take much money to get married, but it can cost a lot to get divorced.

When it comes down to it, the process can either be easier or harder for people based on their expectations.
