(image)

Think of it. A father could be sitting in his own home, not agreeing to a divorce, not unfaithful to his marriage vows, and not abusive, and the next thing he knows, the court has taken his house, his children, and a lot of his money, and then forced him to pay his wife's legal fees and even her psychologist's fees. And he can be threatened with jail time if he resists.

Single Again: What Hurdles Did You Have to Overcome?

Fri, 02 May 2014 01:19:11 +00002014-05-02T01:19:11Z

(image)

I read recently that us middle aged folks take longer to adjust to being single after divorce. It seems that we have a tendency to linger emotionally, to try and figure out what went wrong, how we contributed to the failure of our marriage...you know, we do a lot of navel gazing. I don't see that as a bad thing but I do understand how it can get in the way of putting the past where it belongs and focusing on living life as a single person.

Divorce: Be Careful, It’s Contagious!

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 16:20:20 +00002014-04-21T16:20:20Z

If you have a friend who is divorced, you are 75% more likely to divorce. If you have a friend who has a friend who is divorced, you are 33% more likely to divorce. As if divorced people don't have enough to worry about we now have to concern ourselves with spreading our ugly predicament to our married friends. A research team headed by Rose McDermott of Brown University analyzed three decades of data on marriage, divorce and remarriage collected from thousands of residents of Framingham, Massachusetts and below is what they came up with in their study. "Approaching the epidemiology of divorce from the perspective of an epidemic may be apt in more ways than one," McDermott and her colleagues wrote in a forthcoming article in the journal Social Forces. "The contagion of divorce can spread through a social network like a rumor, affecting friends up to two degrees removed."
