Although the Aloha State does not come to mind as quickly when a couple is planning a divorce, the process can be relatively pain-free.

Hawaii ranks very high for its quality of life when compared to other states, but the cost of living puts the state at the bottom in comparison with its 49 other counterparts. The high cost of living on the islands often contributes to many of the 5,000 divorces each year.

Tips for bringing up a divorce

You know that you want a divorce. You suspect that your spouse isn't happy in the marriage, either, but this is still a huge conversation and you're not really sure how to get it started.
