You Are Not Your Divorce

[ad_1] You are not your divorce. It may have been something that occurred and something that still may have an effect on your life through alimony, child support, or child custody arrangements, but it does not define you. In thinking that your divorce defines you, you are expressing disloyalty to all of the qualities that actually define you. You are setting aside the emotional complexity of the human experience, in favor of one event that ended an unhappy and dysfunctional relationship. You may rely on the aid of your family law attorney as you navigate the post-divorce waters in an effort to...

Why Is Our Default Response To Divorce Nastiness? · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Why do we choose anger over kindness after divorce?   As a society, we’ve normalized nastiness after divorce. Anger and conflict have become the default response to going through a divorce. But that is no surprise, look at Trump on Twitter using words like, “clown, dummy dope, low-class slob, loser, fat phony. It would seem that nastiness is being normalized in all walks of life. Shouldn’t our goal, once divorced, be to learn lessons and heal patterns and deal with unresolved issues so we can get off the hamster wheel of dysfunctional relationships? Why then, are most of us choosing to ignore the...

How to Patch Up a Leaky Budget

[ad_1] Do you consider yourself a financially responsible young adult? Personally, I like to think that my finances are mostly in order. Rent, student loans, car payments—everything big is blocked off nicely. If the math works out right, I have a bit left over every paycheck to go into your savings or retirement account, and a little on the side to have some fun. At least, that’s what should happen. Recently, I looked over my bank statement and noticed a bit less money than I’d planned for and this prompted me to think that a thorough checkup was in order. I hadn’t...

Are Victims Of Domestic Abuse As Responsible As Their Abusers? · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]If women didn’t put up with domestic violence, there would be no domestic violence.   I don’t expect this article to be popular, especially with women who have been victims of domestic abuse. My mother used to say something I didn’t understand until I had become a victim myself. She would say, “If a woman stays after being beaten by a man, she is just as responsible as the man beating her. It was those words that reverberated through my brain the day my ex punched me in the face and, it was those words that spurred me into action and...

From being overcharged in taxi cabs to connecting to fraudulent wifi networks, travel scams exist in one form or another all over the world. But fear not, if you educate yourself on them before you take off you can avoid even...

The Necessity of Divorce

[ad_1] In the worst marital situations imaginable, the ability to legally end a toxic union is a humane response to an impossible set of circumstances. In situations of physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse, divorce can be the light at the end of the punishing tunnel that was a dysfunctional marriage. In situations where finances are abused and the lines of fidelity no longer exist in the union, damaging the confidence and self-worth of the afflicted spouse, divorce is an opportunity to escape a poisonous environment. These moments of clarity that reveal the necessity of ending an unhappy situation are moments that...

Study: Men Experience Weight Gain After Divorce

[ad_1] Getting a divorce can cause a lot of changes in your life. From changing where you live to changing who you spend your time with, it can be a period of adjustment and uncertainty that many are not ready for. Many lean on different mechanisms to cope with this period of adjustment. Some choose to throw themselves into their jobs. Some choose to change the way they spend their free time, and for others, they may change the way that they eat and drink. Over time, this change can cause a change in one’s body, and for divorced men, that change...

It’s not easy to create the safety net of people who will be there for you in your time of need. There is a level of politeness you have to navigate when creating a support group. Many people think to themselves “In terms of my marriage, how much information can I tell someone else?” Unfortunately, every marriage is unique, making every divorce unique,...

Rebuilding Your Confidence After Divorce

[ad_1] Whether you simply are thinking about a divorce, knee-deep in the proceedings, or walking away from the table after signing a divorce decree, you may not have a clear sense of who you are in all of this. Given the mental and emotional toll this experience can cause, you may not have the confidence to think about yourself and your own needs during these challenging times.
