How autumn makes it more dangerous for pedestrians

New Jersey gets an excessive amount of pedestrian motor vehicle crashes compared to the rest of the nation, and this year looks to be no different. In the last month alone, there have been 8 pedestrian fatalities in the state. Most of these deaths were a result of drivers not obeying the law or stopping for pedestrians at marked crosswalks or not paying attention to the road.

Health, finances and other divorce concerns for older adults

National statistical trends show that more and more New Jersey spouses who are 50 and older are getting divorced. Unfortunately, the stresses that accompany the end of a marriage can have major effects on seniors. For example, chronic stress can cause insomnia, depression and anxiety. It may even lead to conditions such as Parkinson's disease, high blood pressure and heart disease.

Why some couples may want a prenuptial agreement

Some New Jersey couples who are planning to get married may be worried that a prenuptial agreement will increase the likelihood that they will get divorced or that they will have to reveal things they would rather not such as bankruptcies or debt. However, creating a prenup can lead to important conversations about finances and can protect people in case the marriage ends.

How to divorce without jeopardizing retirement savings
