I'll Leave it Up to You

by: Jim Duzak, JD.

Dear Jim: My boyfriend and I are in our late thirties and have been together for three years. He’s a real sweetheart, and he’s the only man I’ve ever seriously wanted to be married to.

Regretting Divorce

by: Toni Coleman, LCSW, CMC

Dear Toni- I’m a divorced woman in my early forties with two tween aged kids. About 3 years ago I initiated the divorce action due to feeling overwhelmed as a working mom, a perceived lack of support from my spouse- and a belief that the grass would be greener on the other side of marriage.

Celebrate Our Differences

by: Michele Sfakianos, RN, BSN

Everyone is Different and that’s Okay! A lot of people say it is human nature to try and change people to be exactly how WE want them to be. Everyone was born to be different.

Seriously Considering Divorce

It doesn’t have to be unhappy! After a divorce, many holidays can be depressing. Valentine’s Day can be the most depressing of all. The media promotes this day for “lovers” and those not in a relationship – or just getting out of one – may feel left out.
