Divorce can be a messy business, especially when emotions are inflamed. But it is important to remember that passion is rarely the thing that makes the end of a marriage go smoothly. It is also rarely the thing that helps resolve the material factors of a divorce, such as splitting assets or getting spousal support as well as financial help for raising children.
