Marriage is not only the union of two people, according Texas Law, it is also a sort of contractual relationship. When a marriage comes to an end, decisions have to be made as to what happens to the possessions that the couple has acquired during their marriage. These decisions can be made by the parties on their own, in mediation, or made by a court. If there are children involved, decisions will have to be made about where the children live and who pays for child support and health insurance. Though these seem like the main issues, they are only the “tip of iceberg,” so to speak, of the complexities that are found in divorce cases.
