What to know about divorce before turning 30

It isn't easy to get divorced no matter how old someone is when it occurs. However, there may be special challenges experienced by Pennsylvania residents or others who get a divorce before the age of 30. For instance, their friends or other members of their support network may not be able to relate to their situation. That can make it difficult to offer condolences or words of encouragement.

However, there are some advantages of getting divorced at an early age. In many cases, couples choose to end their relationship before they have children or significant assets. This may make it easier for each person to move on from the marriage, especially true for those who have a prenuptial agreement.

According to data from the Pew Research Center, divorce at a young age is becoming a rarer phenomenon. Overall, the divorce rate for those between the ages of 25 and 39 fell between 1990 and 2015 as people opted to get married later in life. In 2016, the median age for a man's first marriage was 29.5.The median age for a woman to get married for the first time was 27.4.

A divorce is often an emotional time for an individual regardless of age. However, working with an attorney may make it easier to end the marriage in a fair manner, especially in cases of high asset divorce. Those who have a prenuptial agreement may want their attorney to review it to determine its validity. If there is no dispute that it is valid, it may be possible to divide assets and end divorce proceedings in a civil and timely manner.
