  1. Ways to prevent empty nest syndrome being a key factor in divorce

    Comment
    By Peter Jones, founder of Jones Myers family law specialist  As anxious and excited students leave home for the first time to embark on the next stage of their life at college or university, their departure also marks a new chapter for their parents. For many ‘empty nesters’, this is the beginning of their lives without children in the house. It can also bring to the surface long suppressed irritations and tensions that have bubbled under the surface, but whose impact may have been lessened by the demands of children and busy lives. Two decades of hectic work and child care schedules can result in parents losing touch with each other and becoming different people to the couple who tied the knot. In today’s climate...
  2. Why Tini Owens continues to play the waiting game for a divorce

    Comment
    By Peter Jones, founder of Jones Myers family law specialist  The high-profile case of Tini Owens has highlighted loud and clear that being unhappily married does not justify being granted a divorce. The Supreme Court ruling that Mrs Owens must stay in a “loveless” marriage to her husband is the culmination of an expensive and protracted legal battle with wider repercussions. The validity of the original evidence that 68-year-old Mrs Owens gave to illustrate the “unreasonable behavior” of 78-year-old Hugh Owens lies at the heart of this landmark case. Mrs Owens filed for divorce in 2015 before moving out of their marital home and the case escalated when Mr Owens refused to agree to a divorce. In 2016 a Family Court judge rejected Mrs Owens 27...
  3. Dating after Bereavement: Creating your Dating Profile and being Happy with your Body Image

    Comment
    Dating Again as a Widow If you’ve been widowed for some time you may find yourself considering the possibility of dating again. This is a bold move and if you would prefer to meet other bereaved singles, joining a niche-dating site specifically for widows or widowers, could be the way to go. Your dating profile is very important: ‘your shop window’, if you like. Creating a profile should be taken seriously and needs the very best you can give in order to capture the eye and interest of potential matches. A poor self-image can make us self-conscious and withdrawn and this is not something you would want to reflect on your dating profile. Taking stock of how others see us can be an...

  7. Parisian Valentines

    Comment
    Article by Meredith Keeve  a.k.a. The Wandering Parisian Yes, Valentine’s Day has become an international occasion, even in France there are cards and decorations for Cupid’s fete. However, our Fabulous French Fifty year old knows there is nothing less romantic or inspiring than dinner in a restaurant on the night of February 14th.  A “Holiday Special“ menu, overworked waiters, crowded tables, and a great deal of social pressure do NOT a fun evening make. Much as they decline to go out on Saturday nights (preferring to leave downtown to millennial revelers and tourists) the Parisienne is unlikely to insist on a restaurant dinner for Valentine’s Day. For a truly romantic evening, stay in! First, figure out how much your restaurant meal would set you back, including taxis or parking, and...
  8. The ‘Grey’ Divorce: Why is it Becoming More Common to get Divorced at an Older Age

    Comment
    Statistics clearly show that it is now far more common for people to get a divorce at an older age – the “grey” divorce. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the nature of romantic relationships has changed, but is perhaps indicative of a more accepting and liberal society. An Irish Divorce In an article for the Washington Post, Brigid Schulte detailed how her grandparents had lived separate lives without getting a legal divorce and referred to the situation as an “Irish divorce”. This is a term that describes couples who, because of societal pressures, decide not to pursue divorce formally, but instead just to live apart. This type of separation would not show up on official statistics, but now because such societal pressures are seen as archaic the number of people who once felt them feel free...
  9. Five signs that you should end your marriage

    Comment
    Article by Helene Fermont   Today is “divorce day” – statistically the day with the most divorces in the year. But how do you know when it’s time to end your marriage? We asked psychologist Hélene Fermont for her advice. Marriages can be difficult and it’s hard to know when you are just going through a rough patch, and when it might be time to call in quits. Hélene Fermont, psychologist and novelist, says that only you can decide when the relationship or marriage has come to an end, but has listed some warning signs that signal it might be time to move on. When the respect is gone If there is no respect for the other person in a marriage, it is only a matter of time before it crumbles and fails. If...
  10. Dating over Christmas: Save your Dating Adventures for the New Year

    Comment
    Article by Olga Levancuka Christmas, lights, festivities, caroling!  Everyone is out and about. Shopping, cuddling, hugging, kissing and smiling. And here we are, happy by ourselves. We know where we are with everything in life, we are comfortable with what we’ve got, yet with the New Year approaching, we feel that we have to set some kind of resolutions. We feel energised, full of expectations for the year ahead and even ready for a challenge. If you’re single, then dating is probably on your list. And that is exactly where it should stay at this time of the year. Let me explain. Christmas is traditionally a time of year when rationale goes out of the window and sometimes we can make bad decisions about things that we think will make our life better and that includes dating but dating...
