Should We Make It Harder To Divorce? · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Divorce should not be harder to obtain, especially for those who are in danger of physical harm due to domestic abuse. The decision to divorce should not be taken lightly though.     I received a tweet recently from a fellow relationship coach who believes the easier it is to get a divorce, the better. This particular coach has issues with me and her belief that I am of the opinion that divorce should be made “harder.” The word harder is one she has assigned to my opinion that those wanting a divorce should stop and do serious thinking before filing for a...

An Age-By-Age Guide For Helping Children Through Divorce

[ad_1] Research tells us that children of divorce face many risks. It is a major challenge for kids to cope with the drastic change that is inevitable after their parents split and that adjustment is even tougher if they are exposed to the conflict of divorce. How children of divorce respond to news of their parents’ split can also vary wildly depending on their age. Your 4-year-old toddler is probably going to take the news of your divorce a whole lot differently than your 15-year-old who is about to get their driver’s license. Below you will find an age-by-age guide walking you...

How to Tell Your Husband It’s Over · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]How you enter into this conversation about wanting a divorce will influence what gets returned to you from your spouse.   Telling the person we promised to love and cherish for a lifetime that it’s over is likely one of the most difficult conversations we can have in our lifetime. We avoid the conversation for months or even years. We might wait for an argument because we find it easier to do when we’re angry. Sometimes we even start getting destructive – picking fights, cheating on our spouses or becoming secretive and disrespectful. There are times that we wish they would...

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...
