Study shows that Trump arguments causing divorces

Connecticut couples may divorce for a variety of different reasons. One survey conducted by a polling firm shows that an increasing number of divorces are being filed over political differences.

According to research by Wakefield Research, an increasing number of divorces are being filed because of differences in opinions about politics. A primary factor in these types of divorces are the differing viewpoints that spouses have about Donald Trump. According to the data, 10 percent of couples chose to end their relationships because of politics, and the percentage of millennials who chose to do so was especially high at 22 percent.

Divorce risk not equal for all couples over 50

Spouses in Connecticut who are over 50 might be at a greater risk for divorce than in previous generations. Since 1990, the divorce rate for this age group has doubled. However, there are additional demographic factors that predict the longevity of a marriage.

Statistics report that 12 percent of couples who divorce after 50 have been married more than 40 years. Nearly 35 percent of divorcing couples in this age group have been married more than 30 years. However, first marriages are more likely to last than second or later marriages. Couples who are remarried are nearly three times more likely to get a divorce than those in first marriages. Marriages that have lasted at least 40 years are the least likely to end.

Common causes of Connecticut spinal cord injuries

Accidents on the road or on the job are commonplace in Connecticut. The injuries that result from them are not. They can be relatively minor and still put you out of commission for anywhere from a couple of hours to weeks. The most serious accidents can leave a victim disabled for life. In the worse case scenario, it could mean death.

When a collision or work injury is due to someone else's negligence, holding someone responsible isn't merely a matter of accountability. If you are the victim, your entire future may hinge on compensation that doesn't cover your immediate recovery, but ensures your long-term survival. This may be particularly true if you suffer a spinal cord injury.

How do you hold an impaired driver accountable after an accident?

In fatal motor vehicle accidents, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration collects blood alcohol content levels for analysis in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System.  This reporting requirement applies to all states.

However, authorities do not have as standardized an approach to non-fatal crashes. After responding to the scene of an accident, police authorities may request testing of a driver who exhibits signs of intoxication. Yet is this enough? There are many influences that may render a driver unfit to get behind the wheel, including prescription drugs, opioid medications, or marijuana use, which may not be as noticeable as the effects of alcohol.
