Divorce Law & Divorce Lawyers

Considering divorce or separation is a very difficult time; trying to assess the impact on your children, your life, pensions, superannuation, finance and property, as well as the emotional turmoil for yourself.

If you need legal help regarding divorce law, then complete our free legal enquiry form on the left or click here.

Divorce lawyers or Family Lawyers as they are more commonly known as, are well versed with all aspects of divorce law including:

  • annulment,
  • separation,
  • cohabitation and civil partnership disputes,
  • preparation of prenuptial agreements, and
  • most related issues, but particularly financial issues arising from the breakdown of relationships.

Divorce Lawyers realise that these are sensitive issues and will try to handle them in a sympathetic, civilised and positive manner and by advising clearly and acting firmly and decisively to resolve them, if possible by agreement.

Divorce lawyers, or family Lawyers also often deal with complex and high value divorce and separation arrangements (usually by agreement but sometimes in court), which apart from those mentioned above, also include the following issues in relation to divorce and separation:

  • family businesses,
  • property and trusts,
  • issues for children including parental responsibility, residence and contact, and
  • inheritance claims.

DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS

Divorce proceedings cannot be started until the couple have been married for a year.

The Family Court can divorce a couple if the marriage is recognised as being valid in Australia.

Most divorces are undefended, allowing the divorce to proceed on paper through a relatively simple procedure.

Only if one partner does not consent to the divorce will the couple have to attend Court.

Whether the divorce is consented to or not, the divorce can only proceed if one partner can show that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.

To do this, the person applying for the divorce must prove one or more of the following general facts:

1.Their husband or wife has committed adultery. If their partner does not admit the adultery, evidence must be obtained to show that the adultery has taken place. The person applying for the divorce must confirm to the Court that they can no longer tolerate living with their partner.

2.Their husband or wife’s behaviour has been unreasonable. Often, there are relatively mild examples, which are agreed by both. One incident of unreasonable behaviour can be sufficient if the behaviour was particularly severe. The person applying for the divorce must confirm to the Court that they cannot be expected to go on living with their partner.

3.Their husband or wife has deserted them. The person applying for the divorce must show that their partner left them without their consent over 2 years ago.

4.They have been separated from their partner for at least two years and their partner consents to the divorce.

5.They have been separated from their partner for at least five years. Their partner’s consent to the divorce is not needed.

A straight-forward divorce can usually be obtained within a matter of months of the proceedings beginning, provided neither husband nor wife delay matters.

DIVISION OF FINANCES AND PROPERTY ON DIVORCE

The division of finances on divorce is usually by agreement between divorce lawyers or family lawyers, endorsed in a Court Order rather than following a court hearing. There should be no discrimination between husband and wife, or between the money-earner and the home-maker.

The law governing the Courts’ approach (and therefore the approach of divorce lawyers or family lawyers advising and negotiating on behalf of clients) to financial settlements on divorce is based on the Family Law Act 1975 (cth).

Generally speaking, the courts will determine what is a fair division.

Behaviour in financial proceedings is not considered on the basis of moral or emotional conduct. Infidelity or domestic violence is only taken into to account if it has a financial impact.

The aim of the law is to arrive at “fairness”. Although a starting point may be 50% each the overall situation of the parties may mean a departure from equality in certain circumstances. For example, consideration is given to the facts in each case including:

1.age of the parties (including life expectancy of each party in respect of future income) and length of the marriage

2.contribution both in financial and other ways (including bringing up children and inheritance)

3.resources and needs of the parties

4.standard of living during the marriage

If there are children, the first consideration is their welfare, including their housing needs, and this may impact on the overall financial settlement. Children are of paramount consideration.

PARENTS WHO SEPARATE - SOME HELPFUL INFORMATION

When parents separate, and there are children in the family, it is important to remember that it is a stressful time for everyone, and potentially most confusing for the children. Whilst it appears from research that the best outcome for children is for the adults involved to try to help the children to maintain contact with both parents, and to minimise hostility whilst promoting harmony, it is clear that there are some things that parents can do which help children to cope:

Parents should:

  • try to give the children as much information as you can about what is happening, and what is likely to happen next, particularly if either the child or the other parent is going to live in a new home. Be reassuring;
  • encourage the children to go on having a relationship with the other parent, and the rest of their extended family and other important people;
  • listen to the children, giving them time to express feelings and worries;
  • try to agree with the other parent what the children will be told (if possible, talk to them together if you can), what the school will be told and what any other important people will be told; and
  • think about a plan for their independent parenting.

Parents should try not to:

  • blame the other parent in front of the children, or undermine their relationship with the children
  • allow the children to feel that it is their fault
  • involve the children as “go betweens”, or burden them with information that should remain confidential to the adults only
  • assume that a quiet child is OK – he or she may be finding it hard to express concerns when you are upset yourself. Perhaps someone else can help and listen to the child.

DIVORCE LAW NEWS & FURTHER INFORMATION - DIVORCE LAW

Can I apply for a divorce?

You can apply for a divorce in Australia if either you or your spouse:

  • regard Australia as your home and intend to live in Australia indefinitely, or
  • are an Australian citizen by birth, descent or by grant of Australian citizenship, or
  • ordinarily live in Australia and have done so for 12 months immediately before filing for divorce.

You need to satisfy the Court that you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for at least 12 months, and there is no reasonable likelihood of resuming married life. It is possible to live together in the same home and still be separated.

If you need legal help regarding any aspect of divorce law, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left.

To apply for a divorce, you must complete an Application for Divorce and file it with the Court and pay the application fee. You may be eligible to a reduced fee.

If you apply for a divorce together with your spouse, it is a joint application and you and your spouse are joint applicants.

If you apply for a divorce by yourself, you are a sole applicant and your spouse is the respondent.

To request help from a divorce lawyer, please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left. Your free legal enquiry form will be treated as private and confidential at all times.

What a court considers in divorce applications

The Family Law Act 1975 established the principle of no-fault divorce in Australian law. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended.

The only ground for divorce is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. That is, that there is no reasonable likelihood that you will get back together. You must have been separated for at least 12 months and one day in order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

If there are children aged under 18, a court can only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for them.

What will a divorce cost?

You will need to pay a fee. You may be entitled to a reduced fee. You can apply to pay a reduced fee by filing an Application for a reduction of Court Fees form – general or Application for a reduction of Court Fees on the basis of financial hardship. This fee is set by regulation and is generally only adjusted every two years.

In some cases; for example, if you hold certain government concession cards or you are experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for a reduced fee. To be eligible for a reduced fee for a joint application, both you and your spouse must qualify for the same reduction. If only one spouse qualifies for the reduction, then the full fee applies.

To request help from a divorce lawyer, please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left. Your free legal enquiry form will be treated as private and confidential at all times.

Can I oppose a divorce application?

If you have been separated for more than 12 months, there are few opportunities to oppose a divorce application. You can only oppose the divorce where:

• there has not been 12 months separation as alleged in the application, or
• the court does not have jurisdiction.

If you do not want the divorce granted, you must complete and file a Response to Divorce and appear in person on the hearing date. You need to set out the grounds on which you seek the dismissal in the Response to Divorce. It is strongly recommended that you engage the services of a divorce lawyer to represent you in Court. To request help from a divorce lawyer nearest to you, please complete your free legal enquiry form.

If you file a response, you should attend the divorce hearing. If you do not attend, the Court may decide the divorce application in your absence. If it is difficult for you to attend in person, you may ask the Court to appear by telephone.

If you need legal help regarding any aspect of divorce law, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left.

What if the application has errors of fact?

If you want the divorce granted but disagree with the facts in the Application for Divorce, you may file a Response to Divorce. You need to state which facts you disagree with in the Response to Divorce. The errors might, for example, be that dates of birth are incorrect or the details regarding the children are no longer correct. You may attend the divorce hearing.

When should I file the Response to Divorce?

If you want to file a Response to Divorce, you need to file it at a family law registry:

• if served in Australia – within 28 days of the application being served on you, or
• if served outside of Australia – within 42 days of the application being served on you.

Do I have to attend the divorce hearing?

If there is no child* of the marriage aged under 18 years, you are not required to attend the court hearing.  This applies for both sole and joint applications.

If you have made a joint application and there is a child of the marriage aged under 18 years, neither you nor your spouse are required to attend the court hearing.

If you have made a sole application and there is a child of the marriage aged under 18 years, you must attend the court hearing unless circumstances prevent you from attending.

If a respondent has completed and filed a Response to Divorce, he or she should attend the divorce hearing. If you do not attend, the Court may decide the divorce application in your absence.

It is strongly recommended that you engage the services of a divorce lawyer to represent you in Court. To request help from a divorce lawyer nearest to you, please complete your free legal enquiry form.

If a respondent has, in a Response to Divorce, opposed the application, the respondent must appear in person on the hearing date.

If it is difficult for you to attend in person, you may ask the Court to appear by telephone. You must request in writing a hearing by telephone if you are unable to attend because of reasons such as distance from the Court or incapacity.


* A child of the marriage includes:

• any child of you and your spouse, including children born before the marriage or after separation
• any child adopted by you and your spouse, or
• any child who was treated as a member of your family prior to your final separation; for example, a step-child or foster child.

We are getting divorced – will decisions about future arrangements for our children, property and maintenance be made at the same time?

The granting of a divorce does not decide issues about property and maintenance or parenting arrangements for your children. If you want to make arrangements about these issues you can:

• make an agreement with your spouse and file it with a court, or
• seek orders from a court, where you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement.

For parenting cases, you also have the option to make a parenting plan.

If you need legal help regarding any aspect of divorce law, or parenting plans, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

If you want to apply for maintenance for yourself or a division of property, you must file a separate application within 12 months of the date the divorce becomes final. Otherwise, you will need the Court’s permission to apply.

I have applied for a divorce, is it safe to set a wedding date for my new marriage?

You should not plan to remarry until the divorce order is finalised. In most cases, this is one month and one day after the divorce hearing, however, you should not assume the divorce will be granted at the first court hearing. For example, you may be told at the hearing that you need to provide more information.

If you intend to remarry, you must give the marriage celebrant a Notice of Intended Marriage at least one month before the wedding date, and comply with other requirements of the Marriage Act 1961.

As soon as the divorce order is granted, the marriage celebrant may accept the Notice of Intended Marriage. You must show a copy of the divorce order to the marriage celebrant before the wedding can take place.

What is meant by separation under the one roof?

It is possible for you and your spouse to be separated but to continue living in the same home during the 12 months before applying for divorce. This is known as ‘separation under the one roof’. If this applies to your situation, you need to prove to the Court that you were separated during this time.

If you are filing a sole application for divorce, you need to prepare an affidavit. The Court also requires another person (not your spouse) to prepare an affidavit that contains as much information as is known to them about the separation. If you are filing a joint application, both you and your spouse need to prepare separate affidavits. If only one of you is able to file an affidavaitm the Court may require an affidavit from an independent person as above. In your affidavit, you need to prove that there has been a change in the relationship, gradual or sudden, demonstrating you and your spouse have separated.

It is highly recommended that you have a divorce lawyer prepare your affidavit and application for divorce together with any any other court documents.

We want to divorce but have been married less than two years. We understand we have to do certain things, what are they?

If you have been married less than two years and want to apply for a divorce, you must either:

•attend counselling with a family counsellor or nominated counsellor to discuss the possibility of reconciliation with your spouse, or
•if you have not attended counselling, seek permission of the Court to apply for a divorce.

The two years are calculated from the date of the marriage to the date of applying to the Court for a divorce. You and your spouse must also have been separated for at least 12 months before applying for a divorce.

•are an Australia citizen by birth or descent

How To Tell A New Partner You Have A Mental Illness

Thu, 25 May 2017 05:45:43 -0400


I cried in his arms our first night together. I’m not good, I kept repeating, tears falling into my ears as he caressed my face. I knew what love required, and I knew that, time and again, I’d failed at giving it because of the ways my anxiety distorted my thinking, and my panic disorder made me alternately dependent, selfish, and needy.


I wanted to write him a guide for loving me, so he could understand that when I tried to break up with him when one thing went wrong, when I changed plans because I didn’t feel like I could leave my house, when I criticized him much too harshly, it was because of faulty thought patterns and neurochemical flare-ups, not because I didn’t love him.


Love is hard for nearly everyone. But for those with anxiety disorders and other mental illnesses, love can be a minefield. The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that 18.5 percent of adults in this country live with a diagnosed mental illness. That’s roughly 1 in 5 people, or 44 million total.


For years, my relationships would end abruptly because I hadn’t prepared the men I loved for the ways I’d lash out when I became claustrophobic; how I’d become distant and cold when panicked, and suddenly clingy and hot when the panic had passed; how I’d pick them apart against my will, obsessing over perceived shortcomings and imperfections, burning with embarrassment when they held forth at dinner parties or cowering with shame when I deemed them too shy.


After I ended my last relationship, I worked with a therapist on how to prepare myself and my partners for being in a romantic relationship not only with me, but with my anxiety and panic ― and how my partner could support me, himself, and us through it.


Dr. Ayelet Krieger, a psychologist who practices in the Bay Area, believes disclosing a mental illness early in a relationship is crucial.


“I like to talk about striking when the iron is cold,” she says. “You don’t want to tell your partner about your diagnosis when you’re in the throes of a crisis. It’s more productive to talk about it when you’re calm.”


Avi Steinhardt, a licensed clinical social worker in Brooklyn, New York, agrees. “Many of the risks of disclosing a mental illness are similar to the risks of falling in love,” he says. “How will this new, suddenly important person react? Will it scare them away? Unfortunately there is still stigma and misconceptions about mental illness in our culture, so there’s a good chance that this person has absorbed some misinformation over the years. But how a person responds to your disclosure may tell you a lot about this person’s sensitivity, biases, and capacity to listen with an open heart. If there is a risk that they won’t be sensitive enough, it is also good to know early on that this person would likely not be a good match.”


Rebecca Chamaa, who has paranoid schizophrenia, was dating her boyfriend long-distance. About three months into the relationship, she was hospitalized after a suicide attempt.


“After my release, I told him about my diagnosis,” she recalled. “He told me he didn’t know if he could handle it. I said, ‘Fair enough.’ But we were in love. The information may have given him pause, but it didn’t scare him away.”


“We were married less than a year later, and since that time my husband has been my number one fan and biggest help and support,” she went on. “I’m glad I was honest with him, and he was able to decide whether he wanted to give our relationship a try or walk away. The best thing that ever happened to me is that he stayed.”


They have now been married for 19 years.


Disclosing can be a valuable litmus test of whether a partner is a good long-term match. Sometimes, it turns out they’re not. Judith (who asked to be identified by a pseudonym to protect her privacy) has complex post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, experienced this when she disclosed to a new partner.


“The first time I spent the night, the sound of his belt buckle as he undressed caused me to completely freeze and shut down, and I had to explain,” she remembers.


At first he was gentle with her, and very understanding. But a few months later, when he witnessed her depression, he didn’t know how to react.


“He had only seen the charming, adventurous optimist I was when healthy,” she said. “When my physical and mental health crashed, he couldn’t wrap his head around the amount of pain I was in, no matter how much I tried to explain it.”


It’s sometimes difficult for those who have never experienced a mental illness to grasp how debilitating it can be.


“You can say you’re drowning, but a fish has no frame of reference for that experience,” Judith says. “I thought I was disclosing fully, but he didn’t understand until I texted him at work to tell him that one of my friends was taking me to the psychiatric ER because I was suicidal.”


If Judith could do it over, she would be much more explicit in describing the seriousness of her depression.


“I didn’t realize he didn’t understand the difference between the clinical use of the term ‘depression’ and its popular use,” she said. “Next time, I will spell it out a lot more clearly.”


The good news is that educating oneself and one’s partner about mental illness is easier than it’s ever been. “There’s so much information online and blogs kept by people who struggle with mental health,” Krieger says. “The more you learn, the more you realize how common these are.”


Another positive aspect of early disclosure is that it can jump-start vulnerability. When one person opens up about something sensitive or challenging, it can elicit trust and an equal willingness to be vulnerable in the other. “It’s rare there’s a relationship in which one person is perfect and one is complicated,” Krieger says. “Both people usually have ‘stuff.’ Disclosing is dropping into that trust and vulnerability sooner.”


Iesha Williams waited 11 months and until she was married to tell her husband about her anxiety and depression.


“It wasn’t a planned conversation,” she remembers. “We talked about my depression on the anniversary of losing a baby, which was an emotional trigger. The depression was intense and seemed inescapable. Thankfully, he listened and was attentive to what I expressed.”


“He admitted to not fully understanding, but did everything in his power to support me,” she went on. “Disclosing my struggles made us stronger and better able to support, understand, and love one another. I’m very glad I disclosed.”


Steinhardt believes these conversations often result in both partners feeling more known, accepted, and loved.


“I can’t think of a romantic relationship where we don’t need to tell one another how we need to be loved, what our challenges are, our triggers, our weaknesses,” he says.


Confronting something this real and personal early in a relationship can be a catapult into deep intimacy and trust.


I told Joel everything right away, that first night. He responded beautifully, holding me and sharing painful aspects of his own life. Within the first few weeks, I taught him about common anxiety-induced relationship pitfalls, and more about panic. Four months in, he has been unfailingly responsive and calm, encouraging and nurturing, and inspires me to be the same with him.


Still, I’ve tried to end it a few times, to save us both the trouble. He reminds me this is part of it: the doubting, the fear, the bliss.


One evening I arrived late to a concert and saw him sitting there, eyes closed, body still. We walked wordlessly toward each other through the crowd and rubbed our faces together, swaying slowly. I let myself submit just the smallest bit more. A woman near us said, “Ah, love.”


We listened to the music.

If You’re Sleeping With A Married Person, Here’s How To End It

Wed, 24 May 2017 18:08:51 -0400

There’s plenty of advice out there focused on affair recovery and what married couples can do to rebuild trust after infidelity. There’s considerably less information available on how to move forward from an affair if you’re the other man or woman. How do you convince yourself it’s over ― and what do you tell the married person you’ve been seeing?


Below, therapists from around the country share the advice they give affair partners looking to disengage from an unhealthy relationship and move on with their lives for good.



1. Pay attention to your affair partner’s actions, not their words. 


When your partner tells you they intend to leave their marriage, you want to believe them; it’s easy to fall for false promises or half truths when you’re deeply invested in a relationship, said Alicia HClark, a psychologist in Washington, D.C. It’s a lot harder to recognize that your partner likely hasn’t made any real attempts to break free from their primary relationship, she said.


“An affair derives romance and passion from ‘what-could-be’ but that’s generally not sustainable,” Clark told HuffPost. “Avoiding reality only hurts you and the future you deserve with someone who can fully love you. Facing reality and your understandable disappointment is the first step in making yourself available for true love.”


2. Recognize that there’s a whole different side of your S.O. you’re not exposed to.


Affairs are intoxicating because they’re built on brief, heady encounters, and they’re entirely free from the day-to-day demands primary relationships face, said Kurt Smith, a therapist who specializes in counseling for men. That’s why it’s important to ask yourself: What’s my affair partner like when they go home to their spouse and kids ― and how have I idealized them in this on-the-side relationship?


“Affairs are built on fantasy, not real life,” he said. “No kids, no household to run. When you’re with someone who’s still married you’re also only getting part of them because they’re not fully available, which means you’re usually only seeing their better side.”


3. Remind yourself that you’re worthy of someone’s full attention. 


Your may savor the time you do spend together ― but ultimately, you’re selling yourself short if you don’t have their full attention, Clark said. There’s even a possibility that carrying on the affair in secret has taken a toll on your self-esteem, leading you to believe you’re not worthy of love or a trusting relationship. 


“Remember, just because you’ve become accustomed to waiting your turn, thinking about your partner’s needs first or keeping shameful secrets doesn’t mean this is who you are,” she said. “You deserve to be in a mutual relationship, where you can get your needs met without shame.


4. Break it off in person, not through text.


Ghosting is no way to end any relationship, let alone one as fraught and complicated as an affair. To avoid messy emotional entanglements later on and gain some closure, end the relationship in person, said Megan Fleming, a New York City-based psychologist and sex therapist. 


“It might be tempting to send a ‘Dear John’ text or or cut off the connection cold turkey but you owe it to yourself to say goodbye to what drew you to this person and what will never be,” she said. “It needs to end properly so that the relationship you truly desire can come into your life.”


5. Don’t use vague terms when ending it. 


You may be tempted to couch your breakup language in vague statements to lessen the blow ― “maybe one day this will work out” or “I’ll always have feelings for you” ― but doing so isn’t helpful to either of you, said Sheri Meyers, a marriage and family therapist and the author of Chatting or Cheating: How to Detect Infidelity, Rebuild Love and Affair-Proof Your Relationship.  


“You can be compassionate and considerate, but do not backpedal; give no mixed messages of hope,” she said. “Say goodbye and that you can’t see them anymore ― period, no exceptions. You’ve got to close the open emotional door between you and cut off all contact.”


6. Then, resist any attempts on their part to get back in touch.


Once you’ve ended it unequivocally, don’t allow your ex to re-enter your life, said Caroline Madden, a marriage therapist and the author of After A Good Man Cheats: How to Rebuild Trust & Intimacy With Your Wife.


“They may still call you and try to see you in person so they can convince you to stay,” she said. “Fight the urge to see them again. Think of all the times you tried to contact them in the past, but they were too busy with their actual partner. Then, remember that ultimately, you are breaking free from an unhealthy relationship.”

6 Times I Can't Believe He Stayed With Me

Wed, 24 May 2017 11:13:21 -0400


When I Debuted the Getup That I Really Wear Around the House

For the first few months I was dating my now-husband, Tom, I’d wear normal civilian outfits when he came to my apartment, like pants and a clean shirt. Then one Saturday, I couldn’t maintain the charade any longer, and swung open the door, clad in the outfit I actually wear around the house: a mangy black sweater that resembles a deflated Muppet; ancient, saggy black sweats spangled with bleach stains; and something called Socks to Stay Home In, a gift from my mother, which are just as sexy as they sound.

”Hi,” Tom said uncertainly, hesitating at the door. A very formal dresser, he does not own a pair of sweatpants. “Is this...is this a bad time?”

”Nope,” I said cheerfully. I reasoned it was, in fact, a good time for him to know precisely what he was in for.

I should say that when he cautiously—and symbolically—stepped through the door of my apartment, this was not even the time I can’t believe he stayed with me. It was during his next visit, when he saw with dismay that I was wearing the same outfit. It was then that he knew: My Recently Discharged look wasn’t going away. Ever.

When It Dawned on Him That He Was Going to Be My Retired Parents’ IT Guy for Life

If we visit my parents in New Jersey, Tom barely has his coat off before my father is asking to “borrow him for a quick second.” Then, he is pulled into my parents’ den to tinker with their various accounts, and tackle issues such as “Why does that darn ad follow me around on Facebook?” And, “Why do I have to listen to different artists on Spotify when I only want to hear Josh Groban?”

Recently, my parents have begun to phone Tom at home with additional queries. “It’s my dad,” I whispered one Saturday, handing him the receiver. “He just has a quick question.” That was the moment that grim comprehension flickered across Tom’s face, as he realized that, because technology is always changing, he would be receiving these calls for as long as my parents remain on earth. Furthermore, with my parents, there is no such thing as a “quick question.” Instead, it typically goes like this:

Dad: Did you get my email? I think the photos we send from our phone are blurry. Is the photo I attached blurry?

Tom: I don’t see anything.

Dad: Well, it takes awhile to show up. I sent it about 15 minutes ago to your AOL account.

Tom: I closed that account three years ago.

Dad: All righty, I just sent it to Gmail. I think! Do you see it?

Tom: I’m afraid I don’t.

Dad: How about now? No? Well, then, I’ll call back in 15 minutes.

Tom: But, Jay, that mail should show up pretty much instantly. It’s not the Pony Express. See, it’s—

Dad: Talk to you soon! (click)

When He Witnessed My Worst Meltdown Ever

A few months after the arrival of our new baby, I asked Tom to do the dishes after I had made what I felt was a very nice dinner of spaghetti Bolognese.

“Later,” he said, plopping on the couch and pulling out his phone. “Let’s just let them soak.”

Well. The phrase “let them soak” just unhinged something deep inside of me. Granted, at the time, I was deranged from hormonal changes and sleep deprivation, but I was suddenly filled with rage. Tom said later that in 10 years of marriage, he had never seen my face turn that particular shade of purple.

I can’t remember exactly what I yelled, but the expletive-laden gist of it went something like this: “For women, there is no ‘later’! You men treat everything like it’s an option! When you put things off, the pile of crap I have to do just gets bigger!”

I do recall yelling incoherently at the end of my tirade, “You just want to let the whole world soak! Women can’t...can’t not let it soak!” Then, I collapsed into hysterical sobs. At which point he gently led me to bed, and then quietly did the dishes.

When He Saw Me Dance for the First Time

Oh, my. Not good.

When My New Mom Friends Descended on Our House

As our daughter grew, I fell into a raucous group of mom friends. One day, I told Tom I was going to host a playdate at our apartment, and he nodded absently.

However, he snapped to attention as the moms and kids piled into our house. He quickly discerned that after the kids were stashed in my daughter’s bedroom, it was the moms who planned on doing most of the playing. These gals were wiping noses all day, and they were ready to get loose! It was like having the suburban versions of Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones in your living room.

Tom had never seen this side of his wife. He tried hiding out in our bedroom, but in our small apartment, you can still hear everything. They—no, I have to own it, we—rooted through the fridge to unearth the craft beer Tom had stashed in the back. We made vulgar jokes about how Bruce Springsteen may be 67, but we’d “definitely hit that.” We had loud and incredibly detailed conversations about hair removal.

After a few hours, Tom was visibly twitching and sent me pointed looks when he emerged from the bedroom that said, “When the hell are they going?”

He brightened when my friends called to their kids playing in the bedroom, “Five more minutes, okay? Seriously. I mean it.”

Then, they found the Pinot.

When I Revealed the Full Extent of My Germophobia, Neat Freakiness and Recycling Mania

One afternoon, Tom looked on with alarm as I jammed a perfectly good pillow into the trash.

He asked what I was doing. I told him I had just read an article that pillows are filled with dead dust mites, which sent me to a bad place. The queasy expression on his face clearly read, “Is this going to be a problem?”

I’m afraid it is. If Tom wants to let the whole world soak, I want to declutter, straighten and sterilize the whole world. I’m the sort of carefree, fun person who buys hospital-grade alcohol wipes called Sani-Hands in bulk, even as the rational corner of my brain knows that my puny attempts to rid my environment of microbes are ultimately futile. The moment Tom puts down an empty can of seltzer or a section of the newspaper, I race over and whisk it into to the recycling bin. My idea of a good time is to fussily arrange my closet, folding sweaters with Gap precision.

Yet happily, despite this foible and many others that continue to be revealed, my husband has made the decision, over and over again, to stay. We all know it’s important to actively look for the good in relationships, but I think it’s just as crucial to be willfully oblivious. As Ben Franklin wrote in Poor Richard’s Almanack, “Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, and half shut afterwards.”

16 Teens Who Wore Their Moms' Prom Dresses And Looked Just As Stunning

Tue, 23 May 2017 19:23:54 -0400

They got it from their mama: Instead of heading to the mall or ordering online, these teens decided to wear the prom dresses their moms wore years ago. 


It just goes to show, everything old eventually comes back in style ― and it definitely pays to raid your mom’s closet.

Brave Souls Tell Parents About The Night They Lost Their Virginity

Tue, 23 May 2017 15:09:17 -0400




Recounting the story of how you lost your virginity is always a bit awkward. When it’s your parents you’re sharing the story with, all the more so. 


In the WatchCut Video above, a few brave souls do just that, divulging the nitty gritty details of their first time doing the deed.


“I was a virgin and she didn’t think I was a virgin, so I had to play it cool,” a guy named Lance tells his dad Cliff. “I was like, ‘yeah, I could do cowgirl.’” 


“What is ‘cowgirl’?” a confused Cliff asks. “I don’t know what it is! A cow is a cow, what does it have to do with you and a girl?”


OK, dad, that may be a question better suited for Google.


Watch the clip for more.

Obama Photographer Reminds The Trumps How Couples Hold Hands

Tue, 23 May 2017 12:52:49 -0400






Pete Souza FTW. 


Just a day after President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump had a hand-holding incident that turned into the swat heard ‘round the world, the former White House photographer decided to remind everyone what a couple holding hands should actually look like.


So he shared a photo of former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama from 2015. 



Holding hands.

A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on




The image shows the Obamas holding hands during an event at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, marking the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery civil rights marches. 


Souza previously explained what is was like to capture the tender and personal moment between the two. 


“I was moving around trying to capture different scenes away from the stage during the event to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the Selma to Montgomery civil rights marches,” Souza said. “When I glanced back towards the stage, I noticed the president and first lady holding hands as they listened to the remarks of Rep. John Lewis. I managed to squeeze off a couple of frames before they began to applaud, and the moment was gone.”


Twitter was loving it. Obviously.

My Life At Age 27 Versus My Mom’s Life At 27

Mon, 22 May 2017 15:07:26 -0400






Ever get the impression that your parents had sorted out all the important details of their lives (marriage, kids, homeownership) a lot sooner than you have at the same age?


You’re not alone. Millennials are waiting later to have kids, and when they do look to buy homes, they face a ton of affordability issues. Comparing your life now to your parents’ lives decades ago is like comparing apples to oranges.


Still, it’s interesting to see how things have changed. In The Scene video above, a mom and daughter review what they’d respectively achieved at the age of 27. It’s easily one of the most relatable things we’ve seen in a while. 


Mom at 27: “I had my first child ― my son.”


Daughter at 27: “I have food babies when I eat burritos.”  


And then there’s this exchange, about homeownership or lack thereof: 


Mom at 27: “I had built a house at 23 and it’s the same home I still live in now. Four bedroom, four bathrooms, a finished basement, two car garage.”


Daughter at 27: “I rent an apartment where if I lie down I can touch every wall. I don’t have a closet.”

Chelsea Handler Says Melania Would Be An 'American Hero' If She Divorced Donald Trump

Mon, 22 May 2017 14:09:30 -0400




Everyone is having a good laugh over Melania Trump publicly humiliating her husband, Donald Trump ― including Chelsea Handler. 


Handler, who was promoting her Netflix show on “The View” Monday, was absolutely delighted by video of Melania swatting away Donald’s attempt at holding her hand when the first couple arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel. 






“I have a fantasy. I just want Melania to finally come out and divorce him. She would be an American hero,” Handler told the “View” co-hosts. “We would embrace her if she just said, ‘Listen, this guy’s disgusting, and I know all of his dirty secrets and I’m willing to tell everybody.’”


Even if Melania is willing or wants to divorce Donald and spill his secrets one day, actively embracing her might be a step too far.


In 2011, Melania appeared on “The Joy Behar Show,” where she defended her husband’s false, racist conspiracy theory and repeated his birther claims almost verbatim, according to Vanity Fair. 


“Do you want to see President Obama’s birth certificate or not?,” Melania asked Behar. “In one way, it would be very easy if President Obama just show it. It’s not only Donald who wants to see it. It’s American people who voted for him and who didn’t vote for him — they want to see that!”






There are plenty of people who love the idea that Melania seemingly hates her husband. During Trump’s inauguration, a meme was born when, as soon as Trump turned his back to her, Melania’s face completely fell. The Twitterverse went on to use the hashtag #FreeMelania, which was also spotted on signs at Women’s March in January.







Perhaps, in this case, it’s actually easy to mistake schadenfreude for sympathy, but author and sex columnist Dan Savage previously explained that no one should be giving the first lady a pass.


“[T]here are some folks on the left who not only don’t hate her, they view her as some sort of sympathetic figure. The pretty princess in the tower locked up by the orange ogre with the bad combover, a princess desperately blinking out distress signals during swearing-in ceremonies and inaugural balls,” he said during one of his podcasts in March. 


Adding, “She’s an immigrant who doesn’t give a s**t about the plight of other immigrants. She’s famously a plagiarist. And she’s brought ruinous lawsuits against journalists and bloggers accusing them of among other things, potentially interfering with her ability to profit off her role as first lady.”

4 Ways To Overcome A Toxic Relationship

Mon, 22 May 2017 10:14:58 -0400


1. Admit that the relationship is toxic.


If you are experiencing a toxic relationship, then you likely move in and out of a state of denial about how unhealthy it truly is. At one moment you feel revulsion and at another you are making excuses and justifying your partner’s intolerable behavior. Most will let certain issues go from time to time in longer-term romantic relationships. And it is important to be willing to accept your partner as they are. They likewise need to do the same for you. On the other hand, there are certain things that a person should never dismiss in a relationship. You are sowing bad seeds in infertile ground if your partner lies, cheats, humiliates you, exploits you for money or other resources, emotionally or physically abuses you.  End it, if your partner does not hold themselves accountable and causes you chronic pain.


2. Stop believing this relationship is the best you can do.


If you are in a toxic relationship as described above, then you probably have stopped confiding in friends and family. You keep your relationship separate from others because you are afraid loved ones will see how unhealthy it is. Or, you feel that your toxic partner is the only person who will ever understand and love you. Withdrawing from others and avoiding face-to-face intimate interactions with others reinforces the idea that you will never be known or cared for by anyone other than you toxic partner. It keeps you in a panic-like state of thinking you will find yourself alone. This desperation will prevent you from drawing boundaries and wholeheartedly holding your partner accountable. Before doing anything, work to build up your support system. Join a gym, a hiking or book club, start a new hobby, meet friends to exercise, eat with different acquaintances. You need to start letting others get close to you so that you no longer feel as if your orbit will collapse without this toxic partner at the center of your life.


3. Detox.


You are deluding yourself and wasting precious time if you are trying to believe that you can somehow still be friends or have a phone relationship with your toxic partner. These people have a way of manipulating and getting others to feel sorry for them. If you keep contact going, then you enable this individual to continue to work to draw you back toward them. The only realistic way out is to stop all contact so that you can start anew. And too, time away helps positively enhance perspective.


4. Pursue self-growth.


And, of course, change will not be instant and you won’t meet Mr. or Mrs. Right immediately. Take all of that time you spent trying to better understand your toxic partner or to fix the flawed relationship and invest it in yourself. Use your energy to pursue self-growth. Start meditating, journaling, read self-help books or take up weekly psychotherapy. When you do date, thoughtfully consider those you have gone for before, and work to date new and different types of personalities. Strong immediate attraction can mean trouble ahead for a relationship. Hold back and wait a few beats. That tactic will help you avoid another disappointing relationship.


Even if a pattern of toxic love describes your relationship, there is a way out of the spiral. I describe in my workbook, Toxic Love: 5 Steps, specific strategies for how to overcome this pattern, and also how to start attaching with healthy romantic partners.

9 Strategies To Help Your Children Cope With Divorce

Sun, 21 May 2017 22:17:11 -0400


Divorce can be especially hard on children. Whether they are young or in their teens, kids will have to process his or her parents’ divorce just as Mom and Dad are. But because of their position in the family unit, they will likely turn to you for support. Even though you are dealing with your stress, it is important to also focus on your children’s and how you can best guide them through this life-changing event. Here are nine suggestions for helping children cope with a divorce.


1. Tell your kids. Children are more perceptive than we think, even young ones. So if Mom or Dad suddenly starts sleeping in a different bedroom or moves out of the house, kids are going to notice. Let your spouse know that you want to inform the kids and be unified in your approach. Tell them the truth, keeping the ages and maturity of your children in mind. Don’t offer too much in the way of details, but do be honest about the situation so they are not wondering what is going on and drawing conclusions that may be false. Divorce is an extremely difficult topic for children, so your sensitivity radar must be on at all times.


2. Encourage communication. During your initial conversation and as the divorce process unfolds, your children will likely have questions or commentary about the situation. Leave the lines of communication open and remain receptive whenever your kids want to discuss their feelings. If your children are not coming to you, go to them. Frequently check in and make sure they are doing okay. Strike up a conversation about divorce and explain why everything will be okay. Even their initial reactions speak volumes.


3. Offer reassurance. After informing your kids of your split, reassure them that although your marriage is ending, you will continue to be their parents no matter what. Reassuring your children should be an ongoing process, so do it often. Insecurities have a way of sneaking up. Remember, children need to know the split has nothing to do with them and that they are the biggest reward resulting from your marriage. And just as in any other area of your life, make certain that your words match your actions, which brings me to this.


4. Don’t badmouth your ex. One of the worst ways you can undermine your children’s sense of security is to speak badly about your soon-to-be-ex. Part of letting your kids know that Mom and Dad are still there for them is to show support of one another, especially when it comes your role as parents. You may not agree with your ex’s parenting style nor be in a position to control it. If you do take issue with the way in which your spouse is parenting, bring it up to them privately, not while your children are present or in earshot. Remember, your kids love both you and your spouse and hurting your ex inevitably hurts them.


5. Leave your kids out of it. Your children are not messengers. Nor are they pawns in your divorce. So refrain from using them as leverage or for manipulation. No matter how amicable your divorce is, your children’s home and family life are changing. The goal is to keep their environment as stable as possible, which is best accomplished by shielding your children from as much conflict as possible.


6. Be flexible. Your entire family, including the kids, are adjusting to new roles and schedules as a result of your impending divorce. During those early days, things are bound to go wrong. You may miss appointments. Pick up and drop off may be delayed. And emergencies may come up. If these types of situations occur relatively infrequently, try to be as understanding as possible, simply for the sake of keeping the peace. The goal is to maintain stability for your children, even when your lives seem anything but stable. Going with the flow and seeing what works and what doesn’t will go a long way toward establishing expectations everyone can meet.


7. Allow your kids to grieve. Even if your children appear to be taking your divorce in stride, recognize that they, along with you, are experiencing a loss. Grief can reveal itself in many ways and at any time. The time it takes to heal also varies. Divorce is not a situation to be made light of, and your children need time to mourn the end of your relationship just as you do. Give that time to them, observe their behavior, and be patient.


8. As for help. There exist many resources to help children cope with a divorce. If you find that you need assistance getting your children through this difficult time, or if your child is struggling, ask for help. Many therapists specialize in divorce and how it impacts children. Enlisting the services of a professional can make the transition a lot smoother, not only for the children but also for the entire family.


9. Take care of you. Your kids will look to you as a source of strength and as difficult as it may be, you need to be there for them. Just as in an aircraft emergency you would place an oxygen mask on yourself before you would the person sitting beside you, take into consideration your needs. You can only be as good to your children as you are to yourself. So breathe deeply, exercise self-care, and stay positive.

This Photographer Captured Her Dog's Last Days Without Even Realizing It

Thu, 18 May 2017 17:24:02 -0400

Photographer Jasmina Lozar Povše’s favorite subject has always been her dog, Lilly.


When Lilly got sick in October 2016, Povše continued to take pics of the pup, thinking she’d document Lilly’s recovery and return to good health. 


“I took photos because I was truly positive she would be fine,” the Slovenia-based photographer told HuffPost. “Instead of a recovery, though, I captured my hardest goodbye.” 



In December 2016, after months and months of tests and vet visits, Lilly died from what the doctors discovered was liver cancer.


“My heart broke when I lost her,” Povše, who runs a music site, said. “Even though I couldn’t let her go I know now I had to.” 


Initially, the beautiful black and white images show Lilly at ease, hanging out with her canine bestie Deuce, Povše’s other dog.



“Deuce loved Lilly so much, it’s incredible,” Povše said. 



Povše found Lilly in a shelter in Croatia and said the dog quickly became her best friend. 



“When I spotted her there, she was so little and scared,” the photographer said. “But then she became my partner in everything I did. Lilly and I liked long walks, hiking, playing with the rocks, anything.” 


Povše even credits walks with Lilly for relieving her of asthma and allergy symptoms.  



Gradually, the photo series begins to show Lilly slowing down because of her illness.  




“When I look at these photos now, every single picture takes me to that exact moment and it tears me apart inside,” Povše said. “She didn’t give up once.”



As painful as the photos are to look at, the series reminds Povše of the great dog she once had.


“She was my best friend. She was up for anything, she was playful, happy and loving,” the photographer said. “Lilly will be in my heart forever.” 


See more of the heart-tugging photos below.

Making It Work: How Creative Couples Survive The Common Hurdles That Trip Others Up

Thu, 18 May 2017 16:33:24 -0400

While the divorce rate is high for the general population, and is even higher for a second marriage, the rates are even higher for those with a creative nature and personality, especially those who make their living based on their art form. Think of all the failed relationships of your favorite actors in Hollywood, your favorite musicians, or your favorite artistic couple. Is it that their split is more public? That is partly, true, but unfortunately, their split is also more common. So, stacks the deck against a couple, and what can be done to try and avoid these same pitfalls and nurture these relationships?


Dr. Ichak Adizes makes an important point when he wrote about creativity and intimacy being incompatible. He stated, “Because energy is fixed. And being creative requires lots and lots of energy. Little if any is left for interpersonal relations; marriage requires work. Intimacy is not free; it takes energy to maintain it.” There is a theory that we use in my chronic illness community, that I feel applies to many things, it is called the “Spoon Theory.” The Spoon Theory postulates that each of us starts the day with a handful of spoons, and each of these spoons represents a certain amount of energy and effort. Each thing that we must do, or choose to do each day is a certain number of units of energy. So, in rare disease, people really must pick and choose where they are going to exert that energy, but the same can be said for all people, and for relationships especially. If you are creative, and working on your chosen skill takes a certain amount of your energy, you should be vigilant to leave enough energy every day to dedicate to your relationship. It is choosing to divide things up in a way that matters and prioritizes.


Another major issue is jealousy. If you have two creative people, and especially two creative people who practice in the same medium, jealousy is a common issue. If one partner starts to achieve a level of success that the other has not yet been able to achieve, it is a very human emotion to feel pangs of jealousy, but it is also a very destructive feeling to have between the two of you. Jealousy can eat away at the foundation of even the strongest relationship, and it is unfair to your partner to not support them and let them bask in the glow of their hard-fought success. Worse, for them to feel like they cannot share each of their successes with you, out of fear that they will hurt your feelings. There is a Buddhist concept known as “Mudita,” that I have discussed before. It is learning to cultivate your ability to appreciate the joy, success, and good fortune of others, simply in genuine support and happiness for them. It is unselfish joy, and a feeling of contentment in their good fortune, no matter what your personal circumstance. Developing this skill not only enhances all areas of your own life, but truly strengthens the creative relationship.


Another important factor to keep in mind is simply, time. Time together, balance in how much time you dedicate to each area of your life, and knowing the difference of what is and is not worth your time. It allows you to make both your creative work, and your personal relationship a priority. While you may need to be away from home more often than many relationships can tolerate, make sure to keep in frequent contact, and let them know you are thinking of them and miss them. When you are home, try and make the most of your time together. Let your partner know how much they were missed, and how glad you are that you can have this time with them. While it feels important, and it is, to dedicate a certain amount of time each day to your craft, make sure there is time in that day dedicating to cultivating your relationship as well.


While these couples will face the obstacles that I have talked about couples facing many times in the past, these are struggles that can be especially prevalent in creative relationships. Attend to these issues and each other, and you will be far ahead from the average couple. Keep the lines of communication open, and be sure to always attack the issue and not each other. Let your partner know when you feel like things are slipping out of balance, and have solutions to how you might fix the issue instead of just pointing out problems.


People are much more open to hearing someone come from a solution-focused, vs problem-focused perspective. I know, personally, and have worked with, many creative couples that have let these issues implode their relationships, as well as couples who make their relationships work beautifully because they have really made a point to incorporate these philosophies as part of their lives. It is up to you to decide what kind of relationship you want.

This Is The 'Secret' To Brian Austin Green And Megan Fox's Marriage

Thu, 18 May 2017 13:10:58 -0400






Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox have been together for 13 years, and they’re clear-eyed when it comes to what makes a marriage work.


“I don’t know what the secret is. Just stick it out. Like fighting and making up, believing in each other,” Green told People magazine at the Women’s Choice Awards on Wednesday. “I’ve dated people before and you kind of get to that point where you go, ‘You know what, I don’t feel the same way,’ and I’ve never reached that with her.”


“I mean we fight, we disagree on things,” he added. “But I don’t want to go anywhere and she doesn’t, you know? So we stick it out.”



The pair, who have three children together, married in 2010 and split in 2015, when Fox filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” The two reconciled last year while Fox was pregnant with their third child. 


While Fox has not spoken publicly about her relationship recently, in a 2014 Cosmo interview she echoed a similar sentiment. 


“You have to be with someone who loves you at your absolute worst, because you can’t be an actress every moment of the day forever,” she said. “Brian and I have done everything you can do to ruin a relationship and we still love each other. I don’t want to be boastful and say that we would never divorce, but I can’t imagine a scenario we couldn’t work through.”
