Electronic devices are a major part of our modern lives, and we leave a trail of information in nearly everything we do, whether we are browsing the internet and sending email from our computers, communicating with others on Facebook using a tablet, or making calls and sending text messages from our smartphones. When we do so, we expect a reasonable amount of privacy, and the law provides us with protections that will ensure that private conversations and communications remain private.
Marriage is a partnership, and spouses often make sacrifices during their relationship as they support their partner and their family. In many cases, one spouse will decide to stay home to care for children rather than pursuing career advancement, or a spouse may provide financial support to their partner as they pursue an education that will help them earn a higher salary. However, if the marriage ends in divorce, the spouse who made sacrifices is often at a financial disadvantage, and they may struggle to support themselves in their newly single life.

The loss of a loved one can be a devastating blow to spouses, parents, children, and other family members, especially when the death could have been prevented.
