HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY DO CHEATERS CHEAT? “Oh, don’t be silly darling, we are just friends!” Kebab Smokelet It seems we are living in a world where there is a culture of cheating that is increasingly accepted by the masses. Cheaters today are bolder, more shameless, and are increasingly gender neutral. That means both […]
Which is worse? Infidelity or Wife Battery? Tell us what you think.
“The factors the court considers in awarding Alimony differs from state to state. For example, in Alabama, the state may consider whether a party cheated in determining alimony. But in Alaska the court may not be so inclined to consider that. It really depends. But most states’ statutes are pretty similar in terms of alimony […]
Thus, any unfaithful act by an unmarried person is merely an act of “infidelity.” Even if this act is sexual in nature. However, the reverse is not true. Married person persons can commit both acts of infidelity as well acts of adultery. Indeed, one can consider that every act of adultery is also an act of infidelity but not every act of infidelity is an act of adultery.
For example, a one night stand could just be a “meaningless fling” to the person committing the deed, but what if it has more long lasting and far-reaching consequences such as the contraction of a disease or the creation of a child? It also depends on who the one night stand was with. I would imagine for some spouses, it doesn’t matter who it was with. The unfaithfulness and act of betrayal – even if it only happened once – is enough to destroy trust. But for others, this could be an extenuating circumstance.
I was reading this article and I came away wondering whether hair color could be determinant for likelihood of divorce for some women. According to the author of the article, a poll was taken of 1000 men who expressed a preference for brunettes as wives by a rate of 54 percent to 16 percent. It […]
Also important is not to put the child’s teacher or administrators in the middle of the drama. Parents need to act like adults and to remember that the teacher is not a referee or marriage counselor. So parents should refrain from giving too much information and from bad-mouthing the other parent to the child’s teacher.
A recent article in the UK Guardian about a wife, married 30 years, who suddenly received – to her shock – divorce papers from her husband got me to pondering: How is it that you could be married to someone for 30 years and not know if they are happy in the marriage or not? […]
A popular Connecticut blogger discussed an interesting topic the other day about how conflict divorces and family court cases in the state have skyrocketed in recent years and she blames the spike on corrupt lawyers and judges who keep the conflict between families going in order to exploit clients of their money. Are family lawyers […]
SPONSOR THIS PAGE The short answer is yes. Divorce lawyers can petition the court for an order of protection just like a criminal lawyer can. So if you are the victim of domestic violence or if your ex is staking you or in any way physically putting you in fear of harm, abuse or harassment, […]
Airline pilots have a higher rate of divorce than most people. It is unclear why this is but the constant and prolonged absences from the marital home seems to lead to trouble. For one thing, the wives left back at home (pilots are still predominantly male) tend to get used to hubby being gone. For […]
This is a tough question because just because a lawyer or law firm does other types of legal work other than just divorce or family law does not mean that he or she cannot competently handle your case. But the conventional wisdom would seem to be that if ALL a lawyer does is family law, […]
Ideally, you should interview a few lawyers before you select the one you will work with. It is not a good idea to just take the first lawyer you speak to just because you may feel desperate or eager to get the divorce over and done with. A good rule of thumb is three lawyers […]
I read this story about David Mann, a British mining tycoon who went broke trying to support his wife and two daughters post divorce for over 15 years and I just wondered whether at some point, the divorce laws are enabling former spouses to under-achieve while at the same time to become almost parasitic against […]
I do not imagine that the average court is faced with “dividing an art collection” in the average divorce situation. It is the rare one percent of divorces that involve art collections. Most people do not have money to purchase expensive works of art. But sometimes it happens. Sometimes the court must decide who gets […]
I was reading this article about how polls show that family leave pay is a huge issue for voters this year. Apparently people – women in particular – between the ages of 40 – 64 really think this is a huge issue for them in this presidential election. They want it to be law that […]
