New trend in older relationships

Illinois residents who get married certainly do not initially foresee themselves getting divorced as that would be completely counter to the point of getting married.

It is understandable to be very excited about this special relationship you can have with your grandchildren as they grow. However, if you have all of a sudden found yourself needing to assume full-time parenting responsibilities for your grandchildren, you should know that things will change.
