  • Are You at Risk for Having an Affair?

    || 29-May-2015

    Infidelity can be defined very differently depending on who you ask. While some may define infidelity narrowly as sexual intercourse with an individual who is not your spouse, others see it more broadly, including sexual activities and/or emotional entanglement. So how exactly should people be defining infidelity? To put it simply, if you break the rules of sexual or emotional intimacy and ...

  • How to Rebuild Trust: To the Spouse Who Was Unfaithful

    || 31-Mar-2015

    Choosing to commit an affair is no easy decision. Most spouses wrestle through frustration, guilt, and bitterness even in the midst of an affair. If your spouse has just found out that you cheated on them, all of these feelings may be rushing to the surface, with shame or regret becoming increasingly overwhelming. While it may seem like your world is turned upside down with no course of relief, ...

  • This, the third in our series of six articles, is my analysis of how most couples allow marital bliss to go adrift to the point where they believe divorce is the only option. We define what makes a good relationship and how it can change over time in ways so subtle that couples miss the warnings, until the “Danger Ahead: Road Ends” sign appears. We will discuss our take on good ...

  • In Part 1 of this article, I spent a lot of time explaining how my past as an elementary school teacher and Sylvan Learning Center owner helped me understand the Power of Positive Thinking in getting through tough times, using children as the example. In a divorce, the children go through one of their toughest times. We also mentioned the role of the parents in the success of helping their ...

  • Why I Believe in the Power of Positive Thinking in Divorce

    || 5-Feb-2014

    I recently heard of a survey taken in 2012 quoting that 77% of marriages in Orange County end in divorce. To me that is a staggering statistic and also an American tragedy. It got me thinking about our practice here at CMD and why I even got into this facet of the law. It also forced me to think about what I have learned from my many years of practical experience that may be helpful to divorcing ...

  • The 7 Year Itch is Real

    || 5-Aug-2011

    It’s interesting to me that people are marrying now at an older age, divorce rates have risen over the years, but the theory of the 7 year itch remains steadfast. Census data released earlier this year shows that for divorced couples, the median time from marriage to separation is about 7 years. Marriage experts think that the accumulated stress of having children, work and family pressures, ...

Before choosing divorce, I believe couples should really try to resolve their issues and awaken their relationship. However, there are some very common reasons that people stay unhappily married, which really ends up ...

  • How to Divorce-Proof Your Marriage

    || 1-Apr-2011

    Okay, so it’s April Fool’s Day and I thought I might take a lighter approach to our blog this week. I came across this article in Real Simple magazine about how to divorce-proof your marriage. It’s a somewhat tongue-in-cheek article from a couple of happily wed comedians. I laughed, but even through the comedy of the article, there are some genuine nuggets of good advice here. I ...

  • What's Your Fight Style?

    || 11-Mar-2011

    A recent article in the Chicago Tribune caught my eye titled “Married and Fighting”. This article discusses the recent study at the University of Michigan that theorizes it’s not so much the fighting in a marriage that can lead to divorce, but the fight style. This is an interesting article that discusses the differences in men’s and women’s fighting styles, and ...
