I DO believe in child support: From a mom who doesn't accept it.







I have been noticing an anti child support trend lately.  I see articles popping up everywhere from women who claim not to believe in it.

While I understand why they may not want to accept child support,… Continue

Husband number one

Adult children of divorce

As I have mentioned before, my parents divorced when I was young. There is no doubt in my mind that it was the best decision for both of them. There is also no doubt in my mind that it was a hard decision for them to make.



I was one of the only children of divorce in my Catholic school (no surprises there),…

Our Final Anniversary

My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at a fancy restaurant. After he ordered an expensive bottle of wine, he reached into his pocket and pulled out his gift to me. It was a handwritten list of treasured memories from our marriage. Memories, he said, that reminded him of how much we belonged together.

It was a long list, maybe twenty or so memories. I glowed…

Finding a Compromise

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

Starting when Hana was a toddler, I’ve raised her to be very polite and respectful. Hana always uses please and thank you, excuses herself from the table, and asks before taking. Her teachers constantly rave about how obedient and helpful she is in school. I beam when people tell me how well behaved she is and how amazing her manners are. There had been no…

Making Fitness Fit

Exercising regularly was definitely high up on my list of goals when I got divorced. It was yet another way to get myself out of rock bottom. Before Hana was born, I went to the gym 4 or 5 days a…

My Straight, Gay BFF

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

Many women seek a gay man as a BFF for several reason including, but not limited to: the security of male companionship without worrying about sexual advances, harmless flirting with no expectations, and total honesty to relationship insights. I have all of these BFF qualities with my friend, Jordan, except that he’s straight. Jordan and I met in college, where we…

One Big Happy Family?

My daughter, Hana, often comes up with ideas to enlarge our little family, though I always teach her that Every Family is Different. The most common idea is for Mommy and Daddy to get back together. If you’ve kept up…

Shortest Celebrity Marriages

Some people just weren't supposed to get married, but it seems like that is almost always the case with celebrities.

Why is it? Too much exposure? Is it the price of being famous? Are the rumors too much? Is the schedule an issue? I'd say that all these things come into play, but I'm no marriage counselor. I recently read an article on the longest celebrity marriages, which made me curious about which marriages didn't stand the test of time. By that, I mean, I want to know…

What's a Testimony?

Recently, a friend asked me to share my testimony. I was a taken aback. No one had ever asked me for my story before. Come to think of it, I wasn't so sure I had much of a story to tell. When I hear testimonies of how people had drastic circumstances that brought them to the Lord, I am usually in awe. Former gangsters, former drug dealers, former atheists, former prositutes, orphans, homeless...these are the people that have a testimony, right? I've done plenty of stupid stuff in my…

The Divorce War

I am a divorcee. I am also a second wife (the remarriage kind, not the polygamy kind), a stepmom, and a frustrated ex-wife.

Ask anyone who truly knows me: very often, I have to learn things that hard way. Unfortunately, this sometimes comes at the expense of those around me. My poor decisions that led up to my first marriage (which was also a poor decision) created a world that now creates a harsh reality for me and my children. That reality is a split living…

Are you alone and wondering how you'll be celebrating the holidays this year? Whether you're divorced or widowed, a single parent or the spouse of a deployed serviceperson, it most likely seemed easier when you had a partner to share in the planning.
