Divorce, disabled children and the ableism myth

Sarah Palin’s divorce filing by her husband after 31 years of marriage recently made national news. The former Alaska governor was famous for “going rogue” as the running mate of John McCain during the 2008 Presidential Election, which meant she went off her script of campaign talking points. She met her future husband Todd Palin when they were teenagers, and the two married several years later, having five kids together.

How are assets divided in military divorces?

Families with military personnel in them face many unique challenges. There are the issues of moving around as service people get transferred, there may be long periods away during deployment, and of course, the stress they are in harm's way as they serve our country. Not surprisingly, the stress involved in these unique circumstances can lead military couples to file for divorce.

Complimenting a teen daughter can be difficult for dad

Fathers with teen daughters often lead a precarious and complicated life. Developmentally speaking, teenage daughters are often caught up in insecurities that can even be debilitating. While dad may be a safe zone that is less complex than a mother-daughter dynamic, he does not get a free pass.

Strategies for moving on after grey divorce

The topic of grey divorce is a popular one. Many focus on why it is becoming increasingly common, while others discuss its impact on the nest egg and retirement.

Is there such a thing as an ironclad prenup?

Marital agreements, also known as prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, have become increasingly common in recent years. While some see them as pessimistic, these useful tools can provide a guideline of how a marriage and potential divorce will look. Typical details often involve rights and obligations for financial support, responsibility for liability or debt, property ownership, and other details unique to the marriage. They must be put in writing and signed before the wedding if it is a premarital agreement.
