A Texas mother whose child was abducted 23 years ago likely believed that she would never see him again. In 1992, the 1-year-old boy was with his father on a planned parental visit. The father failed to return the boy to his mother, who had physical custody, and disappeared.
When Texas couples file for divorce, they are sure to encounter many stumbling blocks when important decisions have to be made. After all, choices at this time may impact the post-divorce lives of the parties. One aspect of a divorce that could potentially bring about contention is property division. This becomes even more complicated when one spouse owns -- or is a partner in -- a business enterprise.
Due to the fact that prenuptial agreement discussions may not go well with dinners by candle light and bunches of roses, couples in Texas and elsewhere tend to procrastinate, convincing themselves to wait until the time is right. Unfortunately, such delays often lead to failing to have that dreaded discussion before the marriage. It is often reported that most divorce cases result from financial disputes, and if both parties are forthcoming about their finances, such disputes during a marriage may be avoided by signing a prenuptial agreement.
When the celebrity chef Bobby Flay and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Stephanie March, attended a court hearing recently, the hostility between the two was evident.

Stephanie March is contesting the validity of their prenuptial agreement, asking the court to declare it null and void.
