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...

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

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...

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.

What’s more, as driverless taxies become ubiquitous and accrue revenue 24/7, their prices will only...

Sometimes, one parent will demonize the other and attempt to engage the child in parental alienation, a serious threat to the child’s well-being.

9 Tips To Help You Keep Your Children Out Of The Middle During Divorce · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Keeping your children out of the middle during and after your divorce means building a new relationship with your ex that is focused on your children and their wellbeing.   In most cases, divorce is preceded by conflict. In a perfect world, you would be able to divorce your spouse and never see them again. If you have children, I’m afraid that isn’t an option. You will have to not only see your ex-spouse again; you will have to co-parent with them. Although you will be expected to deal with the stress of co-parenting with your ex, your children are not....
