What is being happy in a Massachusetts marriage? It's an often-said desire, achieved by some, but for many couples, it feels like an endless struggle, and people are left to wonder what's wrong with their situation. But rather than a missed opportunity, maybe the problem is the wrong approach. As noted psychiatrists say, "Marriage isn't supposed to make you happy. It's supposed to make you married."
Dads need to make sure that they are taking care of themselves if they are going to be able to be the best dad for their kids. Dads have a propensity to want to ignore their own losses in order and focus on ameliorating the pain their child might be feeling. This is an admirable impulse, but not really a healthy one.
Massachusetts kids are expensive, but while conventional wisdom usually suggests that they'll cost the most when they're small, a new survey is suggesting that isn't exactly true. In actuality, most parents say quite the opposite, as the survey found that parents actually spend way more money on their adult children than they do on babies.
A new study has found that disagreement between Massachusetts' spouses over their children's bedtime can lead to major tension, and potentially divorce. Researchers posed questions to 167 mothers and 155 fathers about checking up on their child during the night at one month, three months, six months, nine months, and then 12 months.
Having kids is seen as an integral part of a Massachusetts' married couple's life; it marks the transition from just marriage and living together to, well, being parents. It's a shift that's been explored in pop culture for ages now, because it's come to symbolize the moment that your family really begins to form.
During and after divorce in Massachusetts your children may be hyper-sensitive about many things. What may have formerly been routine conversations, questions or activities can now be touchy subjects fraught with anxiety, resentment or anger. This is understandable when you consider that the stability of the world they knew has been dramatically altered.
Does a Massachusetts landlord have to approve a Section 8 applicant? No, so long as the reason for the rejection is not the Section 8 voucher. Landlords are required by state law to participate in the Section 8 program, if a Section 8 voucher holder is the most qualified applicant. That does not mean you have to approve the rental application for anyone just because they have a Section 8 voucher. You can reject their application for the same reasons you would reject other applicants, so long as the reason is genuinely unrelated to their receipt of public assistance.
While the overall divorce rate is slightly down from the '70s, '80s, and '90s,divorce for Massachusertts couples aged 50 or older or "gray divorce" as it's called doubled between 1990 and 2010. Now, roughly one in four divorces is gray.
According to relationship and marriage experts, Massachusetts couples wait an average of six years of being unhappy before getting help. That means that after an issue arises, people are more likely to live the better part of a decade with resentment growing, as opposed to addressing and fixing it with a divorce while it's manageable.
