Sometimes, mixing money and romance ends in divorce

Although money might be the furthest thing from the minds of two people in love, it is a subject for discussion if the relationship is serious. Many marriages in New Jersey and across the country have ended in divorce over financial disagreements. Relationship advisers recommend open and honest discussions about spending, saving, investing, debts and financial independence before saying, "I do."

Divorce: Social media addiction as powerful as alcohol or drugs

When does social media start to threaten a marriage? In most cases in which one spouse becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol, the threat becomes real when the source of the addiction becomes that person's primary focus. Social media has developed into a similar risk. Many marriages in New Jersey have ended in divorce because one spouse's use of social media has gone beyond interacting with other users, exchanging messages, and sharing views and opinions.

Holiday season challenges of child custody and parenting time

With proper planning, divorced parents in New Jersey and across the country can make sure that the holiday season remains "the most wonderful time of the year," just like the classic Andy Williams song from 1963. The first step would be to check the most recent child custody court order to be clear which parent is scheduled to have the children, and when. Changes can be made by agreement, but it's best to plan ahead. Discussing holiday plans with the other parent is best done well in advance, and involving the children in the planning -- at least to some extent -- can help them to adjust to the new family dynamics.
