Advice for newly-blended families

Last week, we wrote a blog post about the difficulties of divorces in which children are involved, especially when it comes time to agree on child custody and implement a parenting plan. Those same challenges often arise again if a parent remarries – combining children from previous marriages into a new, blended family can be emotional and complicated.

One-fourth of U.S. divorces now involve baby boomers

During many baby boomers’ childhoods, divorce was something that rarely happened. When couples married, they did so with the expectation that the husband would work and earn money, and the wife would take care of the home and children. Even if the couple was willing to risk the social stigma that came with divorce, it would be difficult to imagine how each spouse could survive without the other. So couples remained married, for better or for worse.

Parenting coordinators could minimize custody conflicts

Although every divorce has its own unique set of circumstances and complications, it is safe to say that divorces in which children are involved are often the most difficult and complex. Emotions often ride high when it comes to kids (for good reason) which can make it tough for parents to agree on child custody and related issues. Family courts must often step in to help make those decisions or, in many situations, to make them completely.

Could a friend's divorce spell trouble for your own marriage?

As human beings, we are constantly attempting to derive meaning and make sense of the world and our own reality by examining others. This also holds true when it comes to relationships, particularly romantic relationships. Take for example a woman who receives an expensive ring from her husband on her birthday. It's natural that upon learning of the husband's gift, this woman's close friend may think back to her own last birthday and the vacuum she received from her husband.

Poor health seems to put undue strain on marriages

Traditional marriage vows have been repeated so many times that, to many of us, they are a cliche: for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health. Truth be told, vows are only words until they are put into practice. And when things go from "in health" to "in sickness," it can put a real strain on a marriage.

Post-divorce life with kids may surprise you in several ways

The divorce process can be a uniquely trying experience. Not only can the process be exhausting mentally, it can also be draining both emotionally and physically. As a result, the finalization of your divorce can feel bittersweet. On the one hand, ending a marriage is almost never easy. However, it can be freeing to have the process finalized.
