The holiday season is a popular time for engagements. Watching your beloved unwrap a sparkling engagement ring is so romantic -- but hopefully, you and your intended had discussed your vision for marriage long before you bought that ring.
Spouses decide to divorce for various reasons and while making the decision to end a marriage is never easy, it's often truly the best option for all involved parties. While television programs and movies often portray divorcing spouses as being out for blood and divorce as an acrimonious process, in reality, a large percentage of divorcing spouses care about and respect one another. For these couples, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution provide a favorable alternative to the traditional divorce process.
