The divorce courts have become mired in disputes about who has what, and where. Not everyone loses out in this wrangling, of course. The lawyers' meters keep ticking as the very assets to be divided get depleted by fees.
Relationships are notoriously fraught with difficulties, no matter how much you love and adore your partner. It doesn't matter how compatible you are, there will be times when things can get a little testing. I've compiled a list of five handy points to bear in mind when the going gets tough.
Research has made it clear that the way we argue carries more heft in determining relationship quality than whether or not we argue, or how much. Fighting filthy will bring a relationship undone. Fighting fair will keep the connection close and intact.
It is sad to say that even the most amicable of break-ups can turn nasty when discussions about money start. Obviously a divorce will have a financial impact on lifestyle for most people.

The Pont des Arts, the centre of this trend in Paris, was beginning to collapse beneath the weight of the thousands of public declarations of affection. Municipal Paris workers have descended with bolt-cutters to peel away the padlocks.

I'm not talking about one night stands and I'm not talking about a major porn-style session. I'm talking about the feeling of acceptance. From one person to another.

That veranda, with its endless, ocean view, brought us both a semblance of peace in a time of growing turmoil and uncertainty. Just to sit there was enough. On other occasions, we would take my telescope up to the roof to study the stars.

Dating after kids is a different world from dating before kids. No longer does my date have to impress my mother over Sunday lunch before the relationship becomes serious. Now, I care more about whether she impresses my children.
Have you ever noticed how good it feels to help someone? It's strange how helping others can give you a boost too. Even the little things you do can make a huge difference to their day but it can also have a positive impact on your day too...
