Not all couples lead a good life. Some are lucky to be married to well-off individuals who can afford to pamper them with the things they like to own while some end up with the average individual who earns a regular monthly income enough to make both ends meet.
But regardless of a couple's status in society, there are certain habits related to handling money that a spouse should avoid as this can lead to a rocky marriage. A husband and wife should be partners at all times and this includes managing finances properly to protect your marriage and ensure a better future for your family, according to a Los Angeles divorce lawyer from the Korol and Velen law firm.

A look at the death of brick and mortar businesses and the rise of ecommerce and online shopping.
Car accidents take place every now and then anywhere in the world. Each year, hundreds of people are killed in crashes involving all sizes of vehicles.
The World Health Organization (WHO) noted that injuries caused by road traffic accidents resulted in the death of 1.24 million people in 2010 alone. This means that for every 25 seconds, one person is killed. Of the people killed, a third of those that occurred in low and middle-income countries comprise cyclists and pedestrians.
Additionally, majority or 80 percent of deaths from road traffic accidents took place in middle-income countries. This alone already accounts for 72 percent of the world's population. View Infographic ›
The process of divorce is not only stressful to both spouses but it is also very expensive. You may have heard about the milliion-dollar divorce cases among celebrities and although the cost of divorce for an ordinary couple may not be in the millions, it can still be out of reach.
So how costly can divorce be and who pays for the expenses? How do couples divide their finances? What about credit accounts and credit scores?
Most people are familiar with the “rule” that we should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. As it turns out, that isn’t so much a rule as it is a guideline. Many factors, such as age, weight, and level of activity play into how much water each individual should consume. You also need to substitute the word “fluid” for the word water, as it’s fluid our bodies require. Fluids can be plain water, juice, coffee or tea, or food. The only fluid to be avoided when you need to hydrate is alcohol, as it leads to dehydration.
An easy way to know if you’re drinking enough water is to observe your urine. If it’s pale yellow and clear, you’re usually adequately hydrated. The urine should also be close to odorless, unless you’ve recently eaten something like asparagus that has a distinctive odor or if you’re taking a medication that creates strong-smelling urine.
What Water Does in Your Body
Fluids are essential to keeping our bodies functioning smoothly. Every organ, including our brains, require a certain amount of liquid to do their jobs. You can’t properly digest food and absorb the nutrients in them without fluid. You don’t have to drink water with your meal if you prefer not to—just consume juicy fruits, vegetables, and soups.
Our biggest organ is our skin. It needs water to stay soft and flexible, but it is also part of our body’s temperature control system because of the way it allows us to sweat when we’re overheated. Forget about the idea that drinking lots and lots of extra water will take away wrinkles or lines. Dehydration contributes to dry and wrinkled skin, but over-hydration won’t cure them.
Water by itself won’t help us lose weight. That’s another myth. Substituting plain water or a low-calorie drink for high-calorie beverages is what will help us shed those extra pounds. Adequate fluids will, however, help keep us energized. With energy, we can exercise away excess weight, as well as generally feel good.
Too Much of a Good Thing
We die quickly if we don’t consume enough fluids. However, it’s possible to over–hydrate. That’s rarely fatal, but it’s definitely not good for our bodies. Drinking too much water or drinking it too fast leads to water intoxication.
You've heard it a million times. When it's hot outside or you're exercising, drink lots of water. It's how your body stays hydrated. Dehydration can lead to all kinds of conditions, some very serious and even life-threatening.
It works both ways. Our bodies must keep a certain balance between electrolytes. Electrolytes are minerals, the two most common of which are sodium and potassium. We lose most of our electrolytes when we sweat, although they are also a part of urine. Drinking excessive amounts of water, especially when you’re exercising to replace fluids lost to sweat, leads to excessive loss of electrolytes. Lose too much and you’re on your way to the nearest emergency room.

How much crime is there where you live?
It's a fact that crimes cannot be totally eradicated. They can be reduced and managed but they continue to be committed around the world. Where people go hungry and have dark motives towards others, there's bound to be criminal incidents.
In the U.S., however, recent statistics reveal a decline in violent crimes particularly in the first half 2013. The Federal Bureau of Investigation noted that violent crimes including murders dropped by 5.4 percent in the first six months of last year compared with the same period in 2012.
Additionally, the U.S. violent crime rate has been cut in half in the past two decades up to 2012. Since 2007, incidents went down from 471.8 to 386.9 per 100,000 people. View Infographic ›

Divorce is commonplace in the U.S. It occurs owing to various personal reasons most often due to irreconcilable differences. Other top factors include poor communication, finances, abuse and infidelity.
Currently, statistics show that about 50 percent of all marriages end up in divorce and one occurs every 13 seconds. On a daily basis, marital relationships end at a rate of 6,646. Studies have also confirmed that genetics, income levels and education can influence a couple's risk of divorce.
Another research done by Brown University in 2009 noted that divorce may be contagious. This means that the cultural and political identities of a state have a potential of influencing the marriage patterns of its residents. The American Community Survey revealed that Panama City in Florida has the highest divorce rates followed by Sierra Vista in Arizona, Charleston in West Virginia, Medford in Oregon and Reno, Nevada completing the top five list.

Anyone with an email account knows how much of a problem spam is: from adware to malicious attachments to phishing for your private passwords, spammers use a variety of tactics that can be difficult to track. But have you ever wondered where all these spammers are?
This infographic illustrates where most of the world's email spam comes from. The top sources are China and South Korea; it's estimated that these countries alone account for 55% of the world's spam traffic, with South Korea also being responsible for a whopping 56.3% of all spam sent to Europe.
It's interesting in light of the current disputes between China, South Korea, and Japan, on topics such as territorial rights to the Senkaku and Takeshima Islands, and the comfort women issue. Other spam "gainers" include Russia, Vietnam, Ukraine, and the Philippines, while the US, India, and Japan actually showed a decrease in spam, dropping down the list.
