Now that the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes marriage is completely over, many are talking about who they should date next. The Hollywood Reporter took a poll with Kim Kardashian, topping the list for Tom (oh boy!). While that is what the tabloids would have a field day with, is it the best thing to start dating immediately after a divorce? Sure, you have to get back there, but it’s important to take your time — especially if you have children. You have a sea of emotions that you have to deal with after the break-up. However, when you are ready to take the leap there are lots of helpful tips in my new book The Divorce Ritual.

In the chapter “Suddenly Single,” I get into dating tips for the new divorcee. Take a look at a few sample divorce rituals by clicking here.

What’s Your Ritual?

Hi all! I wanted to share this nice email I got with you. Here we go…


I first want to thank you for writing The Divorce Ritual. Finally something to make me laugh in this whole divorce dibacle.  Anyway, I wanted to share a ritual with you that I did last week. I call it “The Run” and it involves my dog. My ex and I brought our dog together to the same dog run all the time. Felt a bit strange going there now alone. So I Googled and found a new one not far away. I switched things up and glad I did. Great dog run! Sam (that’s my dogs name) loved it. I also met another dog owner there who was quite handsome. Our dogs met, then we met and exchanged numbers. We’ll see! Thanks a lot Lois.


Email me your divorce rituals ( and I will post them! Don’t forget to check out my book The Divorce Ritual.

The Number 33

Category : Celebrity


It was just announced — and unless you have been living under a rock — you know that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are headed for divorce.  Katie filed in New York City and is looking for sole custody of their daughter Suri. While there are so many articles and reports in the news, I found an interesting consistency in all of Tom Cruise’s three divorces. Every wife of his filed when she was 33 years old. Is this just a coincidence? Or, is there something about a woman who is heading into her mid-30s that she comes to certain realizations and is looking for a change. I do know that certain ages can play a factor in a divorce. Women look to maybe want to have a child with someone else and want to leave that option open. What do you think? Is age just a number when it comes to divorce or is there more to it?
