Many New Jersey residents likely watched the 2017 BET Soul Train awards that took place in Las Vegas. As viewers listened to 40-year-old Tamar Braxton perform on the show, they may not have known her heartache. She has recently filed for divorce from her husband, Vince Herbert.
Tamar Braxton and her husband have been married for nine years and have a minor child together. Apparently, they both star in a reality television show revolving around their marriage called "Tamar and Vince." Their fifth and likely last season will soon premiere.
The reasons for the divorce are unclear at this time. Rumors are beginning to circulate that Vince may have been physically abusive to Tamar, resulting in marital discord. Tamar's mother reportedly told a celebrity news source that she feared for her daughter's safety and hoped Vince would keep his hands off of Tamar. Abuse rumors have not be confirmed.
The harsh realities of marriage, life and stress can result in marital problems for any couple. Although most couples will enter into marriage with hopes of forever, that simply does not occur in many circumstances. Whatever reasons marriages end, there is much to take into consideration, and many couples do not realize the extent to which their lives are intertwined with their spouses. Not only do couples have to navigate the division of assets, but decisions on where and with whom any involved children will live must be made. New Jersey family law attorneys can assist anyone facing divorce proceedings with these important issues.
