Dealing with Arrogance in the Divorce Experience

[ad_1] When you first begin dating someone, you hopefully get to see the various sides to their personality and decide for yourself whether you enjoy all of those various sides enough to be with that person for a longer commitment. However, there are times when you only get to see the sides that your significant other wants you to see, and so when you make that type of long term commitment and marry, you may be doing so under false pretenses. They may begin to reveal the aspects of their personality that they had previously hidden, once you get married. One...

The 4 Biggest Budget Suprises for New College Grads

[ad_1] Life after graduating college is a time of surprises. You’re thrust into the adult world for the first time, forced to earn your way and find your place, all while still feeling like a kid inside. Some people make the transition smoothly, but most of us struggle a bit.   That’s especially true when it comes to your finances. Given the poor state of financial education in American schools, most people graduate college barely able to write a check or remember the PIN number for their debit card. So, a little stumbling is inevitable – but that doesn’t mean you need to...

Why Some Men Hate Paying It · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]The issue isn’t women extorting child support from men, the issue is angry men who allow their negative emotions to cause them to forget their responsibility to their children.   There are a lot of men who consider themselves victims of an unjust system because they are ordered to support the children they chose to have. They view child support as “extortion” instead of taking care of their responsibilities to their children. Some men hate paying child support! Below is a comment I read on an article about child support and my thoughts on this father’s argument that he and other men...

Can My Child Come Live With Me?

[ad_1] Question: My son has really struggled academically over the last couple years since his mom and I divorced. He has persistently expressed the desire to come live with me so he can get better help in school. My wife and I have discussed this option, but she is insisting on waiting until next year until letting him move.

The reason he is struggling is a simple matter of his mother not spending enough time with him to help him with...

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...
