My parents were divorced when I was 10, and it was far from a pleasant situation. I wouldn’t say that it was the worst divorce imaginable, especially after watching several child abduction episodes on Dr. Phil, but I am still dealing with the aftermath of the divorce today as an adult. More
It’s important to know that if your child is acting “fine” in a divorce, then they probably aren’t. And many times, even the most obvious things are left unsaid because they seem so obvious. But really, these obvious things should be said to your kid again and again and again until you are 100% sure they believe it. Trust me on this one. More
I’m not necessarily clicking my heels in the air because I take pleasure in cutting my dad out of my holiday celebrations indefinitely. But I am happy that my kids won’t have to experience any instability, unpleasant emotions, or toxicity coming from that side of the family treeâ€”on a holiday, no less. More
My husband and I got married at 26, which is still fairly young by many people’s standards. By that time, he was already a card-carrying (or divorce-paper-carrying) divorcee. He was someone that got married young to his high school girlfriend. Spoiler alertâ€”it didn’t work out because now we’re married with two sons. Yay! More
A New York father has been accused of being “wholly incapable” of caring for his son after he didn’t give into his “I want McDonald’s” tantrum. Who deemed him incapable? A court-appointed psychologist. More
I have a soft spot for Courtney. I have seen her called the worst sorts of names, names no mother should ever hear in conjunction with her DAUGHTER spewed in headlines, in article comment sections, on message boards, on social media, all over. Put her in a pair of sweats and wash her face and at the end of it, she is just a girl, now pretty much a woman, and it just can’t be easy being her. More
He was extremely abusive. I wasn’t allowed to use birth control or have a job. My job was home in the kitchen, and that’s that. I almost lost our second at five months pregnant from taking a steel toe boot to the back. After three years, the physical abuse tapered off, but it was daily verbal abuse. I was called a “bitch,” “dirty cunt” and a “whore” daily, in front of the kids. Our second daughter was a HUGE disappointment to him, as it was his third girl, and she has autism. More
While children of divorce are more likely to grow up and also divorce, the notion that nuptial bliss all comes to your genetic code makes all those “work it out” adages seem even more futile. Resist the urge to ring up that marriage counselor and demand alllll that money back, now. More
Yes, if he wanted to kill himself using a cocktail of heroin, ketamine, morphine and codeine – fine. But don’t include your helpless little son in this scenario and submit him to such a heinous act. More

Facebook — and social media in general– is clearly a sensitive landmine for many. If it wasn’t, we wouldn’t have so many unanimous Facebook transgresses and digital fight outbreaks, as well as addictions. But despite whatever awkwardness might assume your social media browsing, let us hope the happenings on digital mediums wouldn’t transcend actual dissolutions of unions or relationships. To one guy’s ex-wife, however, not being Facebook besties would hit harder than their divorce — so he estimates. More
Believe it or not, I was not always the snark-tastic, awesome writer that I am today. No, my friends, I once dated a Juggalo. Actually, I created a brand new PERSON with a Juggalo. I shit you not. More
My family is what most people call a blended family. I married my husband almost seven years ago, and when we met I had a child from a previous relationship, a daughter (now nine) who my husband loves like his own kid. We went on to have two kids together, my 5-year-old daughter and my 3-year-old son.
It worked for us then and it works for us now, but this isn’t always satisfying for the teeming masses, yearning to
breathe free stay all up in my biznezz. More
All but one of my girlfriends has split families where they only have their kids two to three nights a week and every other weekend. When they call me or I call them weâ€™ll shoot the shit for awhile and theyâ€™ll tell me how last night (when they were childless) they got their hair done, or nails did, or went to the movie, or out to supper and it was SO AWESOME!!!! And OMGâ€™S!!! What did you do last night?!?!?! I swear, if I bit my tongue and harder itâ€™d bleed and thatâ€™s when I tell them, same old stuff, played with the boys cooked supper, did chores and went to bed. More
