  1. 4 Tips for Coping When You’re Caring for a Disabled Partner

    Comment
      As we get older, many of us will become sick and infirm, and a portion of us will end up with disabilities. This means that a portion of us will also end up caring for a partner with a disability. Carers of the disabled are more likely to be stressed and suffer from symptoms of loneliness, isolation and depression than the general population, which is shocking, but perhaps not surprising. There needs to be a change in the way that carers are supported via official means, but until that happens, if you are caring for a disabled partner, you need to do what you can to take good care of yourself.   With that in mind, here are some tips that...
  2. How To Support Your Husband Or Partner With Hair Loss

    Comment
    Hair loss or male pattern baldness is very common. Men that are approaching their 50s usually begin to lose their hair somewhat rapidly. However, some men also begin to lose their hair in their early 20s or early 30s. This is also quite common as the bald gene is dominant and if you have a family history of baldness, you stand a high chance of losing your hair as well. For women who are married or with their boyfriend or husband that is losing his hair, it can be quite sad to witness them begin to have confidence issues. You may have never seen your husband act so timidly before, unsure of himself and unhappy with the way he looks. We always...
  3. Online Dating over 50: How I Rescued My Sister from a Romance Scam Criminal

    Comment
    Article By Shelley Frost I didn’t want to believe it. I pretended like everything was fine. But when my sister’s online boyfriend told her to call him King and he will call her Queen, I finally accepted that she was caught in a romance scam.   Why did this little detail pull the trigger for me to begin an investigation? I was guessing that some of these scammers juggle multiple victims. The chances that he will mistakenly say the name of one of his ladies while talking to another is too risky. Having his women respond to the name Queen ensures that he won’t screw up anytime soon, and the money keeps flowing.   But at the time when I deduced her guy was a bad guy, I knew very little about...
  4. Relationships over 50: 7 surprising relationship lessons you can learn from movies 

    Comment
    Article by Dawud Gurevitch Whether you’re a filmophile, a filmophobe or somewhere in-between, movies can do much more than simply entertain us. Yes, the film industry exists primarily for this reason in exchange for our Netflix membership or our cinema ticket fee (before the pandemic) but did you realise that some movies can teach us surprising lessons about life and relationships? In this article I touch upon seven popular films that each reveal a different take on love and life in all its glory, which doesn’t mean that everything you will see and hear in them will be “sunshine and rainbows” as my wife likes to call it, but will mean that overall you get a realistic view of some of the very things we live for: love, laughter,...

  6. Who Do You Notify After Changing Your Name? The Complete List

    Comment
      Situations like divorce or separation may require changing your middle name or surname. You need to order a deed poll for that. However, having successfully changed your name with a deed poll, you also need to inform many organizations and companies of your new name. This is important to avoid any confusion regarding your name and identity.  For example, you’ve got an important flight to catch, but the Airport authorities may stop you from boarding the flight because your name doesn’t match with the one in their record.  To avoid a situation like this, the following list should help you identify many relevant institutions and businesses that will need to know your new name. Who...

  8. Midlife Divorce: How separated parents can support their children’s return to school

    Comment
    By Kate Banerjee, head of Jones Myers Children’s Department Many children and young people will no doubt be feeling apprehensive as they return to the classroom for the first time since March this year. However, the school environment and routine that used to be reassuring and familiar to them has changed dramatically as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. New measures implemented to help safeguard pupils’ well being include one way systems, different playground rules and staggering starting and finishing times. Secondary pupils in local lockdown areas will also have to wear face coverings in school corridors.  While looking forward to being reunited with their friends, children and teenagers will understandably feel anxious about the new rules, particularly those who are old enough to have seen...

    Comment
    We’ve seen a surge in people seeking divorce later in life. The so-called grey divorce is on the rise, with a 5.8% in 2016 among opposite-sex couples compared to 2015.

  10. Midlife Divorce: When is the right time to divide assets on divorcing?

    Comment
    Article By Anna Sutcliffe, Jones Myers Senior Family Law Executive Deciding on crucial factors that will change your life forever is challenging at any time – particularly in today’s turbulent climate following the covid-19 pandemic. Physically separating is one thing – but when is the best time to divide your assets? Questions around your financial settlement are not resolved until a final order from the Court sets out your obligations and what you will keep. In most cases, it ends any claims you might have against each other. But what happens if your assets increase or decrease in value after you have separated but while you are still attempting to reach a settlement? Any decisions on “who gets what” will not be based on their value at the time...
