Christina Hendricks seeks divorce after 10-year marriage

Many people in Illinois are fans of Christina Hendricks' work on the TV show "Mad Men," but they may be surprised to learn that she is facing romantic conflict in her own life as well. According to reports, Hendricks has filed for divorce from her husband, actor Geoffrey Arend. The pair have been married for 10 years. They have reportedly been separated for eight months, as their separation date was listed as April 2019 in court documents for their divorce. According to the papers, Hendricks intends to return to using her last name. She is asking that neither party be awarded spousal support and that both pay their attorneys' fees separately.

How collaborative divorce removes some stress

Few things can cause as much stress and contention as a divorce. Additionally, divorce can be one of the most financially devastating processes that a person can go through. Illinois residents may be interested in learning about a new approach to divorce that some couples are using to make the process easier. It is called collaborative divorce.

Divorce often takes a heavy financial toll on women

Going through a divorce often leaves working women in Illinois and around the country in precarious financial situations. When researchers from the London School of Economics looked into the effect that ending a marriage has on how much spouses earn, they discovered that working wives saw their incomes drop by about 20% following a divorce. Men, on the other hand, brought home approximately 30% more after their divorces were finalized.
