Utilizing Resilience During the Divorce Experience

[ad_1] Even before the word, ‘divorce,’ slips past your lips, you may have quite a bit to fight for, putting you in a defensive state of mind. You feel like you have to fight for your place in your household and in your relationship. You feel like you have to fight for your role as a father as a respected part in your child’s life. When the divorce process begins, you have to develop a level of resilience necessary to get through it. You begin to compartmentalize certain aspects of your life and your relationships with others, in order to get...

Are You Hell Bent On Getting Even? · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Why rob yourself of the joy others can bring to your life by focusing all your attention on the pain caused by an ex incapable of giving you what you deserve…friendship, support, and love.   I hear from people weekly who are hell-bent on getting even with an ex who has hurt them. They think getting over it and getting on with their life is dependent upon whether or not they are able to get even. For instance, I heard from a woman who had been married for 27 years to an alcoholic. He, the alcoholic had filed for a divorce and...

Managing Money With Your Partner When You Earn More

[ad_1] Four years ago this month, I published When She Makes More, a guide for higher-earning married women who want to master their finances and thrive in their relationships.    Earning more money, as the wife in your hetero-relationship, may seem innocuous. What does it matter if your salary is bigger or smaller than your mate’s?   But as my published study determined, there are unique complexities in coupledom when she makes more than him.   Compared to married women who make as much or less than their spouses, women who make more are less satisfied in their relationships, less happy with their financial planning status,...

Stop Settling For Less · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Divorced, dating and wondering what the hell happened?   I’ve been dating again. I have one thing to say about that, what the hell happened to dating? I don’t have a lot of dating experience. I married my college sweetheart so had dated the same man for over four years. And, I’m thinking these 21st-century dating rules need to change. Here is the thing, though. My ex and I dated. We actually went out on dates. We didn’t hang out all the time watching movies at his place or mine. We never got to a place where we took each other for...

Move Like a Minimalist: How to Avoid New Nest Syndrome [Video]

[ad_1] [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfDlyF7rME8?enablejsapi=1&autoplay=0&cc_load_policy=0&iv_load_policy=1&loop=0&modestbranding=0&rel=1&showinfo=1&theme=dark&color=red&autohide=2&controls=2&playsinline=1&&w=480&h=270]Spring is a common time when people start buying new homes, or simply moving to new apartments across town. Moving by itself is an incredibly stressful time, and no one needs to add additional financial stress into the mix. Moving tends to be expensive, transporting things across town (or further) and getting everything settled can put a major dent in an established monthly budget. Once you get to your new place, it’s likely that the layout of the furniture won’t be the same, and you’ll need to figure out how to best fit everything in while very likely...

Unpacking Mother’s Day Feelings as a Divorced Dad

[ad_1] With Mother’s Day approaching, you, as a divorced dad, have your own feelings to unpack, regarding the holiday. Given how the divorce experience can often create tension between co-parents and how events, actions, and words can sometimes be used negatively when issues regarding child custody are called into question, your feelings are probably justified. However, it is important to remember the children’s perspectives when deciding the best method of expressing these feelings. Regardless of how you feel about your co-parent, she still is their mother, and for them, that makes her worth celebrating. Your mother and your children Think about your mother...

6 Tips For Handling The Realities Of Divorce · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]The realities of divorce will be quite different from what you’ve imagined divorce to be. Don’t be caught off-guard!   A couple of weeks ago I saw the post below go through my Facebook newsfeed. It was written by a newly divorced Mom who had learned five realities of divorce while attempting to sell a home and raise her children on her own. “No one tells you divorce makes you an outcast.No one tells you people really do take sides, & they will do it in your face.No one tells you how to learn to get over it. How to sit with...

Navigating a Fear of Commitment in Post-Divorce Relationships

[ad_1] When you begin the divorce process, you can sometimes feel like the commitment that you made during the act of marriage is dissolving between your fingers. If you wished to keep the commitment, you may mourn it and become angry that you will no longer have that relationship in your life. If you were the one interested in ending the union, you may express relief that you will no longer be brought down by the dysfunction and the unhappiness of the relationship. An action like spousal infidelity may have fueled your decision to divorce, shifting your perspective about future relationships. The...

Don’t Make This One Mistake When Dating After Divorce · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Dating should not be a state of despair, one that promotes rash or extreme behavior.    If I had my way the word “date” would not be part of the English language. There would be a less stressful way of finding a future mate. What, I don’t know, but definitely less stressful. The “dating game” and the mechanics of it set most of us up to make this one huge mistake…appearing desperate while dating. In Dating Is The Worst Way To Find Love And We Should All Stop Doing It, Jessica Blankenship pretty much says it all, “Look, I don’t care how...

Are the Days of Car Ownership Coming to a Close?

[ad_1] Self-driving vehicles are coming much sooner than expected — and the general consensus is that car ownership will bid us farewell. After all, with a dominant ride-sharing model in place, upfront purchase prices and ongoing maintenance costs seem less appealing. On top of that is the surging trend around “access vs. ownership,” where the car-owning value proposition is taking some real hits. In the future, getting around will be much easier and cheaper, and the hassle of owning a vehicle may quickly outweigh the benefits. What’s more, as driverless taxies become ubiquitous and accrue revenue 24/7, their prices will only...
