When I was 21, I had my whole life ahead of me. I felt unafraid of almost anything. Physically, I felt wonderful. I was free-spirited and happy most of the time. All that said, at 21, I was so naive, I made so many mistakes, and I didn’t have wisdom, self-confidence and common sense when it came to dating.  Thirty five years later and after divorce, I have the opposite of what I had and didn’t have at 21 (except I’m still happy. ) It would have been so nice to be able to give myself dating tips! Ever wish you could travel back to the past,  walk up to yourself and give yourself some ..read more

The problem is that I don’t have enough money to fight for custody for very long. I can delay contributing to their college funds, though, a ..read more

Many people going through a divorce will say, “My dog is anxious. Do you think he/she knows I’m getting divorced?” Here is my answer.

Everyone going through a divorce, and everyone who is divorced has problems. So does every PERSON, even if they are happily married. What I want to share is a very personal experience about a day that that made my divorce seem like a teeny tiny problem.
