Even office workers are at risk of a serious injury

When you think about workplace injuries, you may imagine only catastrophic accidents involving amputations or lacerations. The truth is that all kinds of harm can come from the workplace and result in injuries that impact workers. For example, if you work in an office, you could suffer from repetitive-motion injuries or be in pain as a result of sitting in the same position every day.

Get prepared for dangerous winter driving

It's time to get ready for the winter weather. Snowy and icy conditions on the roads pose a hazard to all drivers. Around 70 percent of citizens of this country live in areas that get at least five inches of snow; in Connecticut, we often see substantially more.

Divorce follows a basic framework from start to finish

Although the issues that drive people to end their marriages may differ, people in Connecticut will navigate basic steps before completing a divorce. Factors such as children, finances and animosity between spouses might complicate matters, but essentially a divorce requires filing, responding, negotiating and agreeing.

Factors that may lead to a divorce

Although there is no way to say for sure if a couple will get divorced, there are factors that may increase the risk of a separation. For instance, if a person in Connecticut or elsewhere is married in their teens or after age 32, they stand a greater chance of divorcing. Age gaps may also a play a role in the success of a marriage as the odds of a divorce increase the wider the gap is.

When ending a marriage is better than staying married

Connecticut parents may be aware that a little more than 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. While some marriages could have been saved if the spouses were able to get past their differences, there are certainly times where divorce is an appropriate option, especially if there are kids in the picture.
