Dividing your frequent flyer miles in divorce

Even relatively amicable divorces where there are significant marital assets to be divided can be complicated. As you and your spouse work out who gets what properties, stocks, artwork, jewelry, antiques and good old-fashioned cash, don't neglect what could be a very valuable asset: your frequent flyer miles.

The financial 'silver linings' of divorce

Most divorcing people are prepared for the break-up to have a negative effect on them financially, at least in the short term. After all, it's less expensive to live with someone and share expenses like the mortgage than to live separately. However, there are some financial silver linings to be found in divorce -- particularly if you make wise decisions.

Why weight-loss surgery could lead to divorce

Recently, we discussed a Swedish study that indicated that women who gained considerable success after marrying were more likely to divorce than other women.

You're no longer splitting housing and other expenses between two incomes. Even people with considerable assets find that their lifestyle needs to change after divorce.

Is your spouse hiding assets in cryptocurrencies?

The digital currency bitcoin has been around for awhile. However, the cryptocurrency that is held anonymously -- and still a mystery to many -- has gained significant media attention recently. Its value rose over a whopping 1,300 percent last year. The current price of just one bitcoin is over $15,000.

The following day, his wife took steps to get herself named as his guardian, claiming that her husband might have early-onset dementia.
