My oldest daughters have officially entered into the dating age. I have dreaded this time, but knew that sooner or later it was coming.
The following is a list of things you can do to make your children’s lives easier after a divorce. Read these tips as reminders of what you and your co-parent should be doing to ease the stress of divorce on your children. Remember that the reason why you should do these things is that if you don’t your children will join the ranks of those who become emotionally hurt by the process of divorce.
When single, you likely engaged in flirting as a way to introduce yourself to men and entice them to take a romantic interest in you. Based upon this logic, it would seem that, upon marrying, your flirting would stop. While for some, a ring on the finger does prevent them from engaging in playful flirtation, for many women, flirting while married is commonplace. Even though flirting while married may seem odd–or perhaps even wrong–a number of biological and emotional reasons explain why some married women fail to give up the flirt.
After a separation it may seem like your marriage will never be the same again. While this may be true, you can try to make the change positive instead of negative.It’s amazing how much you can shift within a relationship by simply shifting your own thoughts and behaviors.
What with the hormonal changes, the morning sickness, and the uncertainty of exactly what’s happening inside your body, you may find yourself at what seems a total impasse when it comes to sex while you’re pregnant. Fluctuations of libido are normal, especially during pregnancy. The best thing you can do is relax and take care of yourself.
Sex without condoms feels better for both men and women, but you risk pregnancy–and sexually transmitted diseases–when you don’t use them. If you are not using hormonal birth control and want to limit your chances of getting pregnant without using condoms, you need to time your intercourse correctly. Using fertility awareness, you can use condoms only when you have a higher chance of conceiving.
The Cancer woman is devoted to her home, family and lover, which can sometimes seem smothering, but she simply has a desire to protect. Cancers are known for being sensitive and reluctant to share their feelings. My Daily, a horoscope website, cites that a Cancer’s biggest weakness is the fear of repeating past mistakes in his present life. Nurturing and careful, Cancers are picky when it comes to love, but once they find a mate, their loyalty and sexiness shine through.
Myths about sexual activity during pregnancy abound, but the idea that sex will harm the baby or the mother, or that the baby somehow “knows” mommy and daddy are having sex, are simply false. Unless there are complications such as a history of miscarriage or leaking amniotic fluid that may prompt your health care provider to advise against it, sexual activity during pregnancy is normal, natural and healthy. Whether you desire sex while you are pregnant is a different matter altogether.
It is difficult to know the right thing to say to someone who has lost a loved one. You want to comfort them, not make matters worse. Here are some things you should say and some things you shouldnt say at a funeral, wake, or whenever you encounter someone who is grieving.
So, it is much easier to give advice on what NOT to say to people who are struggling to conceive (see previous blog, What Not To Say). The truth is, there isnt really a lot you can say to someone who is struggling with this difficult journey. Like with many hard things in life, there are no words to capture the sorrow, the pain, the loss and the heartache that this path brings. At any given moment, a caring supporters words can seem trite or meaningless, even with the best intentions.
