Half of people felt differently about their marriages after some time.
Maybe this breaking point in your life is an opportunity for you to get to know yourself, possibly for the first time in your life.
Your partner is already feeling negative, and then what happens? You douse the flames with more fuel.
The longer you stay in this toxic environment and remain a magnet to narcissists, the more desensitized you become to the abuse.

Father's Day is joyously anticipated by your children, as it is a day to show their appreciation and love for their dad and stepdad.

Life after a divorce can be painful, mostly because ending a relationship with someone you once cared about feels like a loss, and let's face it losses hurt. However, life does go on, and eventually the pain of losing your loved one does go away.

As a divorce attorney, I've seen marriages dissolve for reasons that run from the trivial to the deadly serious. But there's one cause of divorce that seems to draw the most attention: adultery.

I practised family law from 1985 to 2009 and was never so relieved in my life as when I finally stopped. From that vantage point, there were things that I was easily able to predict. One of them was that some men would be driven to suicide by the burdens the law thrust upon them.

Where is my group of friends from childhood? Or the couple friends my ex and I had been cultivating when we were married? The family trips with our friends and their kids? When you're divorced, it's hard to maintain those friendships. Some people fall off the map, or couple friends remain friends with one of us or the other or find new couple friends altogether.

"Do not argue in front of them. Do not discuss stressful things in front of them."
We want to prepare and protect our child against something dangerous. Our protective role is clear. So the truly complicating factor that makes talking to your children about divorce so difficult is that the parents are the source of the pain.
