Is it over, or just a phase?

There are natural ebbs and flows to every marriage or relationship. We are all aware of this on a conscious level or subconscious level. While most ride these ebbs and flows, there may come a time when a spouse will wonder if their partner had a bad day or the partner is no longer interested in spending time with their spouse.

Signs that a spouse has found someone else

The current living situation for many families means that they have spent a lot of time quarantined together. Ideally, this shared adversity enables the family to grow closer. Still, living, working and sleeping in the same space can mean growing too close for comfort, perhaps offering new insights into a spouse.

Domestic violence a growing concern amid quarantine

Many families have enjoyed their uninterrupted time together in quarantine. However, there is a growing concern that the stress of the times mixed with tenuous relationships and tight quarters could lead to an uptick in domestic violence in homes not safe for spouses or children. This is based on data in France (which has seen a 30% jump in reports of domestic violence) and other countries around the world as well as reports from New York, Washington, DC, and San Francisco.

New study reveals that those who cheat are often hypocrites

Character flaws come in many forms, and sometimes it is a combination. The latter is the case when a new study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, which determined that those who cheat on a partner judge other cheaters more harshly. Psychologists attribute this to what is called a “self-serving bias.”

More women are out-earning their husbands

It is increasingly common for women to earn equal pay or be the breadwinner in the family. This should come as no surprise since women have attended college at a higher rate than men in recent years, and they now make up over half the U.S. workforce. According to the Pew Research Center, this near parity arrived within a few generations -- only 3.8% of women earned more than their husbands in 1960. But it is not quite equal yet here in the U.S. - we rank 53 out of a total 153 in equal pay.

No hearing aids, no marriage

A Wyoming woman recently wrote a first-person account of her choice to file for divorce. Writing about her divorce was not particularly unusual, particularly for people who like to journal or write. What stood out were a few crucial details. First off, she filed after 52 and a half years of marriage. Secondly, the reason she did was her husband refused to buy hearing aids.

Success at work leads to higher divorce rate for women

A successful career paired with a loving marriage is the ultimate dream for many of us. But according to a new study, this goal is harder to achieve for women in business or politics even in the most gender-equal countries in the world. This translates into a much higher rate of divorce for successful women than their male counterparts.

Is it time to create an online dating profile?

Some who file for divorce cannot wait to get back to dating, while others have zero interest. Most will likely be somewhere between these two poles, so it is worth contemplating. Those who want to get back out there may have some experience in creating a dating profile for one of the various platforms. Perhaps it was even an online dating profile that introduced you to your future ex.

When is it appropriate to modify the divorce decree?

Change is one of the few consistencies in life for families. The needs of the children change over time as they seemingly go overnight from a child barely walking to a college athlete. The parents also go through life changes where the person who filed for divorce may be very different than the person today.
