A Cheating Start

couple-arm-in-armDoes the circumstances in which something begins  dictate its future outcome? A philosophical question that deserves some further exploration particularly when it comes to relationships. In this case, if a relationship is born out of infidelity, is it bound for failure?

Now one’s first instinct may suggest that of course since infidelity is labeled a selfish and therefore negative action its offspring cannot in turn create a positive. However, those  quick gut judgements may become tempered by the details which led to the ultimate action. What if a person is in a poor unfulfilling relationship, one marred by poor communication, disinterest, substance or physical abuse etc. He/she knows that their current situation is not in their best interest, but at the same time remains locked in by a sense of obligation to the pleasant memories of the past, a fear of the unknown due to a sense of interdependence, the potential judgement/ humiliation of divorce etc. Read More→

The Road Which Leads to Divorce

couple-fightingInfidelity is the action which gathers the most glaring attention when a relationship is on the skids. However, the reality is that cheating is often the grand gesture or tipping point of a situation that has gone bad. Below, we will discuss a handful of the circumstances that can put a couple on the path to failure.

  • Activities: part of the connection which binds two individual is the simpatico or compatibility. In simple terms a couple gets each other. They each can have unique interests, hobbies etc. However, they understand where the other is coming from and appreciate and spend time together experiencing these activities. Now over the course of time, one’s interests may change. Work and other responsibilities can shift the priority scale. However, a couple which has a hard time making time for each other will more easily grow apart.

  • Appreciation: Anyone can become the victim of habit or routine. However, that becomes an issue when we fail to recognize what each other does that benefits both of our lives. Some of the most common things which are taken for granted are household chores (cooking, cleaning, laundry, maintenance, grocery shopping, bill paying etc.) Over time this actions can occur as if on autopilot, but it doesn’t mean that they should be taken for granted.
  • Finances: Many households disagree over the way in which the mighty dollar is spent. This can aggravated by income inequality between spouses or disagreements over how money should be spent regarding purchases etc. The point being, you should try your best to be on the sam page regarding the checkup.

Untangle Alimony

alimony-money-1Divorce can cause a significant money crunch. You’re off on your own; you may need to find a new place to live,of course that place will need to be furnished, the lawyers you hire to handle the legal paperwork are a necessary component. However, their services can cost a pretty penny. While these changes are inevitable, they hit one’s bank account. Just when you think you’re starting to settle into your new state of existence, that monthly reminder of your recently departed marriage hits you and your cheque book hard.

Alimony or spousal support is aimed at aiding the transitional period after divorce. This makes sense on many levels given that any number of financial and career-oriented arrangements may have been agreed to before or while married. One shouldn’t be unapologetically thrown to the wolves because the other decides he/or she wants out. This scenario is further exemplified when innocent third parties i.e. children are thrown into the fray. Read More→
