A close friend of mine had just closed a chapter of her married life. That is, she is considered a single once again. Some marriages just do not work out. Stress, money, interest and third party are just some of the problems that cause some marriages to fail. Some finds out that about the past history of their partner that he was still married with someone else. The best defense for a woman is to check Divorce Court Records to know if the person they are marrying was married before. Some parents-in-law goes through that to protect their daughters from being cheated by married men. These records are available for public in the United States.
