Power Rules the World (and Rules the Home).

In cities all across the United States, both large and small, at least one million women, men and children marched this weekend to protest the abuse of power and to regain power from those presently in power. They were protesting the Machiavellian power dynamic that runs rampant now. They were contending that this dynamic is antiquated and destructive and must yield. Social science shows that they are correct.

Collaborating with your ex may make a marital breakup easier

Navigating a divorce can be confusing and difficult both financially and emotionally. This is true no matter how long you and your spouse have been married or how many or few assets you have.

Family Law and the Hollywood Drama

I love "A Christmas Carol" and "It's a Wonderful Life," both great progressive, humanitarian dramas about "finding your religion" at Christmastime. Both are meaningful and life affirming. While both of the protagonists in those stories reach their epiphanies and help their fellow man, they only get there after tremendous drama. Perhaps one needs drama to reach an epiphany.
