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?

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

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…

My Divorce: A New Kind of Motherhood

Three months ago my husband moved out.  Two months ago, I filed papers for a divorce.  One month ago, I spent any spare time in bed trying to wrap my head around the failure of my marriage.  And last week, I dragged myself up, put a smile on a my face and started to refocus.  And now that smile has become real.

I'll be honest, as I try to always be with you guys, I was not going to share this life changing experience on here.  The title 'Divorce' comes with preconceived notions, ideas…

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…

By Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

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.

The Power of Hate



Those who divorce often experience hateful feelings towards their ex at some point, especially if their partners cheated.

Parental Contempt

As a parent, I have been judged so many times I have lost count. It starts in the grocery story line or in an airplane. As the kids kick the back of your seat or scream through the entire flight, your anger and frustration is not necessarily focused on the child, but at the parents.

As a parent of a child with reactive attachment disorder (RAD), the parental judgment reaches higher levels. Now the judgment doesn’t come from strangers, but from friends and family. “Why can’t…

With Malice Towards None

I am a child of divorce. I wasn’t little when my parents divorced, so there was no custody fight, parenting plan, or alternating weekends. I was 40 years old. I can’t remember how I found out...whether it was by phone or in person...and I can’t remember which parent told me. The details aren’t important.…

Separation/ Divorce: How Does it Effect a 4 yr. old?

Sadly, my husband and I have separated and are on our way to getting divorce. I'm staying at my moms for now, and of course my son is with me. He thinks we've been on vacation this whole time, it seems. When he says "home", he's talking about daddy's house. His bed is still there, etc. He and I share a room at my moms and there wasn't room for all his things to come with us. I also didn't want to freak him out if we were going to go back at some point. As it stands, this seems to be a permanent… Continue
