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.
Whether you're fantasy-prone or a pragmatic realist, the temptation to romanticize the past (including your former flame) can be emotionally gratifying.
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.
Recent research details factors that can lengthen your life, and those that can shorten it - everything from eating less, exercising more and being optimistic (longer life) to obesity, alcoholism and sleeping too much (shorter life).
Arguments are a natural part of a Massachusetts marriage. They are necessary to push one another, to settle disagreements, to make feelings known, and arrive at the best solutions. But, of course, not all argument tactics are created equal. When spats are recurring, explosive, frequent, or never move on to solving a real problem that exists couples need to recalibrate the way they talk and discuss their issues and, well, figure out how to fight "well."
Maybe it started with a snide comment or passive-aggressive sigh. Or maybe the why-do-you-always-take-the-kids-side argument turned into an hour long fight that touched on everything. Whatever happened, things escalated. Tempers flared, frustrations were vented, eyes were rolled, feelings were hurt. Eventually, you lost your cool and called your wife a bitch.
If you have a happy Massachusetts marriage, "'til death do us part" may be a long ways off.
It has long been known that children whose Massachusetts parents split up have lower educational prospects than those whose parents stay together. But a new UCLA study found that divorce does not affect all children equally. Somewhat counterintuitively, the study suggests that divorce shortens the academic career of kids from stable families more than it does those from already struggling families.
