When it comes to divorce, statistics suggest that men and women approach the matter differently. In fact, one shocking statistic suggests that women make up 75 percent of all elderly people living in poverty, and that 75 percent of those women were not poor while they were married. This data should spur all Colorado women into making better decisions both within and after their divorce.
One of the most common mistakes that women make during divorce is to allow their emotions to guide the negotiation process. Rather than approach the matter in a business-like manner, they begin to feel stress and anxiety about issues of contention. Many women will accept less than what they are entitled to, simply in an effort to move beyond the negotiation portion of the divorce.
