Divorce is one of the advantages of marriage

There are a lot of reasons to get married. In our culture, most people get married because they fall in love. Other factors that motivate people to get married are religious traditions, societal expectations and for some, financial security. But one advantage of marriage that many overlook is that if the relationship ever goes sour, the divorce process provides a legal framework to deal with the messiness of breaking up, and provides protection in the form of spousal support.

Divorce court voids prenuptial agreement

Colorado courts will give effect to a valid prenuptial agreement. It is uncommon for a court to declare a prenuptial agreement unenforceable.

Brolin also has an Oscar nomination, for his role in the 2008 film "Milk."

Colorado is a "no-fault" divorce state, meaning that a divorcing spouse does not need to allege any wrongdoing by the other spouse in order to secure a divorce.
