The Ultimate Indignity

Category : Break-Up, Dating, Divorce Rate, Favorite Articles, Financial

Read an article in the Los Angeles Times about the fact that since the economy is getting better, divorce is going up. 

I had heard a while ago that so many people stayed married and living together because they couldn’t sell their home — their biggest asset.  Many of the couples stayed together and waited until they could get a price that made sense for them.  I actually met a woman who lived like that for about a year and a half.  It must have been quite an experience.  She would sort of slide out the backdoor when she had a date and then had to be pleasant when she returned.   Talk about a schizophrenic lifestyle.

Obviously, it’s not love that keeps some married people together.  To read the article in the Los Angeles times click here.

How does a top celebrity divorce lawyer suggest that married couples stay together? Raoul Felder, who was called the “Duke of Divorce” by Us Magazine, offers his tips for couples to have a lasting marriage on Glamour.com  The article entitled, “How to Not Get Divorced, According to a Top Celebrity Divorce Lawyer” is something any couple heading down the aisle should read as well as the couples already married. Here is some of the article:

1) Do your own thing. “Too much togetherness breeds complacency,” says Felder. Have a life outside of your relationship. “If you were single, you’d continue to develop and grow, and that shouldn’t change just because you’re married,” he says. “Otherwise, it becomes like reading the same story over and over again. Even Shakespeare gets boring.” Which is why he also recommends you…

2) Read a book every two weeks. “You have to keep introducing lines of conversation,” he says. “Nobody wants to go to bed with someone knowing exactly what they’re going to say the next morning. Seriously, keep reading. It helps.”

Living Under the Same Roof Post-Divorce

Category : Children, Ex-Spouse, Favorite Articles, Huffington Post

Have you heard of ex-spouses still living together after a divorce? It’s happening often these days. Check out my latest article for The Huffington Post that covers this trend. Here is some of my article below:

With the difficult economy, you hear about more and more couples who get divorced and find themselves still living under the same roof.  Often, this is due to financial issues and the inability to sell their home (probably their largest single asset) in a bad real estate market.

With few options available, the most obvious one is for two people to live together in the family home as they wait for it to sell.  If you have children, I think this situation must be really difficult to maneuver .  The divorce is confusing enough for kids to understand without compounding the problem by their parents still living together.  If there are no children, it may be easier to take this path for a short while.  Either way, I can’t imagine it being a picnic living with your ex after a divorce. If you are forced to do this for the time being, here are some tips that may help keep the household peaceful.
