Although the divorce rate has stabilized at around 117,000 couples a year - from a marriage rate of around 247,000 per year - and despite the increase in co-habitation, the bad feeling that lingers after an adversarial divorce still continues to spoil the atmosphere of family weddings on a regular basis.
If someone constantly takes advantage of you, why wouldn't you tell them? Why would you place them above yourself and give into their unreasonable demands and inappropriate behaviour? You have the 'Nice' Syndrome. I used to suffer from that syndrome for years.
It's Christmas time, the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer and winter is on our doorstep. So what is a Muslim girl to do if she wants to find Mr Right?
Long-term committed dating demands clarity - you need to be transparent about your "requirements" and "wants". Requirements are elements that you must have in your relationship. They cannot be compromised; they are your deal-breakers.
Most men secretly want to grow a moustache. As much as we may deny it there is a definite attraction in adorning our faces with an expressive, character defining moustache. While beards have retained a certain roguish charm... moustaches on their own have remained resolutely anti-fashion.
For those people who say that they never meet anyone, there are opportunities to meet 'the one' everywhere. From coffee shops to train stops, potential dates are everywhere. Perhaps it's just a case that you've not been interested in them or haven't felt brave enough to spark a conversation.
Alcohol isn't always a must on a date, but it helps. Not only can inebriation aid attraction and conversation or soothe disappointment, it is also handy to have something to sip during awkward silences. Will I really be able to fall in love without a glass of beer in my hand?
Though I continue to believe, seven years on, that multi-partner relationships are a healthier and happier choice for me, my family and my partners, I have no problem admitting that at least one catalyst for my inclination was a painful formative experience.
The interveiws with Psychotherapist Caron Barruw provide a real insight into the children's perspective on adversarial divorce, and also the wider effects on work life and the cost to employers.
Ashton argues that almost a third of under-16s have already had intercourse, so lowering the limit will send a clear message to 14s and under that they absolutely cannot have sex for another 12 months. But where does it end? Over a third of under-16s have tried booze, but that doesn't mean we should let them into pubs. For a start they can't afford to buy a round, the free-loading bastards.
Divorce separation and marital relationships have a huge impact on people in the corporate world, especially on their productivity and how they are relating to people, and it has a massive effect on their teams, because somebody who is normally quite productive, suddenly becomes quite unproductive.
I have become a bit evangelical around issues of sex and disability. When I started my career as a TV presenter and journalist in the early 1990s I convinced Channel 4 to commission a documentary on the subject called Willing and Able, which I think explored many of the issues that Enhance The UK are still trying to confront over twenty years later.
Studies show, statistically if you have been friends for seven years it is likely to last a lifetime. Yet, I'm a different person to who I was at 21 and some of the people I knocked around with then aren't here today. That statistic doesn't always bode true with me.
On the same floor yet light years away, Marketing is the department with the best women - knowingly beautiful, charming, and ostentatious. Naturally, not a one had ever displayed the slightest interest in me.
I learned the hard way that these guys have such an enormous ego they usually always have one woman they can 'fall back on' as they always need to have someone in the wings and there is always a woman who will welcome these guys with open arms. Women with a deep fear of being alone, lack of confidence and low self- esteem.
We're not 'hot young talent', we're the most disposable, and once disposed of we'll probably have to work for free again. Britain's brutally uncertain jobs market is the perfect clammy breeding ground for a mid-twenties crisis.
