There is no point that a marriage can reach that makes it invulnerable to dissolution. Any marriage, from ones that have lasted for only a few months to marriages that have lasted a few decades, may not make it. A divorce is one of the biggest changes a person can go through, but the longer the marriage, the more difficult it could be on the couple when it ends.
Austin residents may have heard that legendary musician George Clinton has filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years. The 71-year-old entertainer’s divorce papers stated that the marriage was irretrievably broken.
Clinton has been separated from his wife Stephanie Lynn for a long time. The marriage took place in Toledo, Ohio, in 1990. Clinton had lived in a different home for long enough since the breakup that the couple’s relationship was considered a long-term separation.
Clinton and his wife have no children. The entertainer did have two kids prior to the marriage, and his daughter is still living, but his son, George Clinton Jr., died of liver cancer two years ago. Although Clinton filed for divorce in Florida, this story may still interest Texans because the laws governing divorce in both states have similarities.
People entering a divorce must consider how the final agreement will affect their futures. It is possible to get caught up in the strong emotions surrounding the end of a marriage and not think about how issues like spousal support affect an entire family. Learning what each individual is entitled to in a divorce can lead to the most beneficial outcome for all parties involved.
