Divorce can lead to heart health troubles for women

Most people understand that moving beyond a broken marriage is stressful. Even in cases where divorce is clearly the best option, the end of a marriage is always difficult to navigate. In some cases, the stress surrounding divorce is severe and can lead to a number of health concerns. Recent research suggests that the ill effects of a divorce may be far more pronounced than once thought. For Connecticut women who are preparing to divorce, this information may be of particular interest.

Actress loses recent child custody hearing

Many Connecticut readers are familiar with the hit television show "Gossip Girl." One of the actors from that show, Kelly Rutherford, has recently been dealt a terrible blow in her child custody fight with her former husband.

The story serves as a warning to parents in Connecticut and across the nation of the importance of taking the proper steps when seeking changes to an existing child custody order.

If you are ambivalent about getting divorced because of your fears about what it may do to children, you are not alone. There is plenty of research and information on how kids may have a difficult time when their parents break up. But keep in mind, there is a great deal of information on how resilient kids are.
