  1. What About Me? Maintaining a relationship with your ex-boyfriend’s kids post-breakup

    Comment
    Article By Dani Alpert How did I feel when my boyfriend Julian and I broke up after nearly eight years and the fate of my relationships with his kids, Nicole and Tyler, unknown? It felt like I’d been fired, asked to pack up my belongings and leave the house key under the mat. For years, my identity had everything to do with Julian and the kids. I contorted, knotted, and sacrificed, investing my time and emotional energy into our relationships. And over time, I fell in love with them, only to see it all implode. I remember my first thought was, “What happens now? What happens to me and Nicole and Tyler? Could I still call myself the Girlfriend Mom? Was I the Ex-Girlfriend Mom?” The kids and I...

  3. How to End a Toxic Relationship: Divorcing over 50

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon It’s never too late to start over. Ending a relationship or marriage is never easy – at any age, but once we are in our 50s and beyond it can appear to be more daunting.  Is the relationship really toxic or are you just going trough a bad patch? If you are in a toxic relationship you have probably had your confidence eroded gradually over a number of years, with your partner convincing you that any issues in the relationship are totally down to you. You have probably been isolated from family and friends as your partner has attempted to exert more control over all aspects of your life. Do you want to escape? You may feel trapped and worried, but there’s hope. You can...
  4. Ways to prevent grandparents from being frozen out in 2020 when children divorce

    Comment
    Article by Peter Jones, founder, Jones Myers niche family law firm January can be a challenging month in many ways for parents who have undergone divorce or separation. It can also be an unhappy time for distressed grandparents who are being prevented from seeing their beloved grandchildren. Grandparents can be instrumental in sustaining their grandchildren’s critical routines both during and after divorce – as well as supporting their son or daughter practically and emotionally. Unfortunately, reasons including fractious and difficult relationships between their children and in laws/former partners can result in grandparents and other relatives being marginalised. Steps for grandparents to consider when children divorce If you are in this position, here are some steps to consider. We strongly advise only using the court route as a last resort. Negotiate some quality...

  6. Divorce over 50: How to Have a Good Divorce

    Comment
    Article by Sara Davison WARNING: It is NOT easy to have a good divorce – but it is possible.   There is a good reason that it is known as the second most traumatic experience in life after death of a loved one. It is an emotional rollercoaster and has a huge ripple effect across your entire world. It will affect your mental and physical health, lifestyle, daily routine, children, work life, friends and family. We see the ‘Conscious Uncoupling’ celebrities who release amicable and loving statements on Twitter – and frankly I admire them for this. It is without a shadow of a doubt better for everyone involved if you can...

    Comment
    Article by Julia Keyes Whether you are working through a current relationship challenge, or trying to move on from a previous relationship, writing a journal can be a very therapeutic experience. It can help you move to a place of positivity and clarity. In our book, The MANScript , we describe the feelings of hurt, from a relationship breakdown and betrayal, as like being hit by a bullet or a ton of falling bricks. The impact of what is happening is such a tremendous shock, it might as well be a bullet or bricks!  The after-effects completely shatter you and can leave you metaphorically ‘on the...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
