With Halloween coming up, you will probably be out eating, drinking and partying with friends.

Colorado has one of the highest divorce rates in the country. According to data collected by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, most states have a divorce rate around two or three per 1,000 people in the state's population. However, Colorado has a divorce rate of 4.4 as of 2011.

A divorce does not have to signal the end of a person's love life. According to data from the Pew Research Center, approximately 40 percent of all marriages in 2013 involved a person who had been married previously. While a person going through a separation can certainly marry again once the court finalizes the divorce, he or she should be careful of dating before the finalization.
Domestic violence is a scourge that Colorado is determined to overcome. People in positions of administrative power may have a level of responsibility to take action when they are on notice that someone under their review or control may be committing DV. It is no longer only the violent actor who can suffer the consequence of his actions, but so can those who may otherwise turn a blind eye.
