Do Working Moms Lose Child Custody in Divorces?

Not long after I graduated from college, I worked at a government agency. One of my co-workers was in the middle of a bitter divorce. Prior to the divorce, he stayed home caring for his two young sons. Once his wife left him, however, she filed for custody of the children. At the time, he did not contest the filing, as he did not want to upset his kids any more than they already were. However, he was clearly heartbroken and missed nurturing his children. ...more

When You, Me and the Ex Make Three

After nearly ten years of marriage, my ex-husband and I called it quits. Our situation may not be the norm, but there were no harsh words nor nasty litigation involved as we essentially split everything down the middle, including shared custody of the kids. Now, more than three years later our relationship is as amicable as ever. We try to speak at least once a day and meet up for dinners weekly and for family affairs and social events. ...more

Going to see UP? Bring tissues.

Up is the number one movie in America, by far, bringing in $68 million in it's first weekend alone. When I took my daughters to see it (the first time) I was expecting just another entertaining, lighthearted, there's-a-lesson-in-there-too, colorful and beautiful to look at Pixar film. I mean, there's a floating house, talking dogs, an adorably chubby little boy and an equally adorable elderly man, the Disney equivalent to Clint Eastwood's character in Gran Torino (minus the racism). I'm a huge Pixar fan, loving just about everything they've produced so far besides Cars, which I just don't get the hype about, and I knew from the previews that Up would be no different, but I had no idea that I'd be sitting there fighting back tears for the the first 1/2 an hour and biting my lip intermittently throughout the entire thing. ...more

You, Your Partner, and Your Friends.

I know exactly when I became paranoid about meeting my partner's friends. It was the first time I dated someone with a close-knit group of friends... many of whom didn't like me. I was too straight for him. I was too old for him. And I wasn't one of them. Maybe I could have written that off as a fluke. But then it happened again. Worse. ...more
