What's the first thing you should do before marriage?

Many soon-to-be newlyweds are excited to begin their new lives together, but before they take the plunge into marriage there's something that they may want to consider -- signing a prenuptial agreement. As unromantic as this might sound, a prenuptial agreement will be extremely helpful if the marriage ends in divorce, as approximately 33 percent of marriages do.

Has sexual incompatibility led to your marital breakdown?

Most couples get together and stay together because they have a sense of compatibility that goes beyond just sexual chemistry. However, if you're like most spouses, sexual chemistry probably played a big part in you getting together in the first place, so what happens when the sexual chemistry runs dry? Is it time to call the marriage quits or can you work through this difficulty?

Fathers have rights but first they need to prove paternity

Fathers have parental rights just like mothers do. In the case of a child born out of wedlock, however, it's not always immediately clear who the father happens to be. If you are facing a circumstance in which you want to establish paternity and play a role in the life of your child, but the mother is denying you're the father, you may have to step forward and prove you're the father in court.
