"Why do some women do well after a Massachusetts divorce, while others get stuck?" a divorcing client asked me, confronting her worries head on. "I want to be happy again. I want to rely on myself and not be afraid of the future. I can't make it without his support, but it's tough being tied together for so many years through the kids and the money."
Massachusetts parents' love for their children can make them do peculiar things. Like staying up until 1 a.m. gluing glitter on a second-grade class project. Or driving 40 miles to deliver a single soccer cleat. Or, perhaps, bribing their teenagers' way into a fancy college. But one of the weirdest things parents do is love their children more than their partners.
Back-to-school season is a pretty crazy time for all Massachusetts families. There is a rush to buy supplies, new clothes, and organize class schedules to make sure the children are ready to return to class.
A good night sleep and some exercise may not be the secret to happiness, but they certainly help. However, things are different for new Massachusetts parents trying to maintain a healthy marriage.
Raising Massachusetts kids is a messy, complicated and stressful undertaking. And it can put a lot of strain on a marriage even in the best of circumstances. When parents have conflicting ideas of how best to approach child-rearing and don't work to get on the same page, that strain increases and arguments ensue. Done regularly, this not only adds tension and resentment to a marriage but is also harmful for kids.
Whether you're fantasy-prone or a pragmatic realist, the temptation to romanticize the past (including your former flame) can be emotionally gratifying.
Sites like Facebook and Instagram are an easy way for new Massachusetts parents to share photos with friends and family.
A Massachusetts divorce can be a complex and lengthy process with a variety of emotional, practical, and financial implications for both spouses, and any children that may be impacted. During such a stressful time, it can be easy to overlook basic items like the family's insurance coverage. Nevertheless, it's important to review all insurance policies to determine how your coverage may change once the divorce is final and, more importantly, how you can prepare.
A Massachusetts divorce is not an everyday occurrence for most individuals. Because of this, most of our clients come to us seeking help in a divorce with certain ideas and preconceived notions as to what they expect their divorce to look like. Whether they get these ideas and notions from television, magazines, or even from friends and family members who have experienced their own Massachusetts divorce, there are certain myths which are quite common about the divorce process.
