For couples already on the rocks, Valentine's sentiment is tricky to say the least

Family law attorney Mary Jo McCurley says key is to neither overblow nor ignore special day
The expectations of Valentine's Day can be a minefield for struggling couples who may be heading for divorce. Ignoring the special day can make a bad situation

unbearable. But going to the opposite extreme be an even bigger mistake, says family law attorney Mary Jo McCurley of McCurley Orsinger McCurley Nelson & Downing. "If you receive roses with a sentimental card filled with commitment, then three weeks later receive divorce papers, the entire process is going to start on a heightened emotional level that might be hard to temper," she says. "Not only might the divorce itself be more contentious, but it could play a role in the proceedings as the court will hear about it and draw its own conclusions as well."
