Ringing In The New Year With A Divorce Lawyer

Posted by familydynamics on January 8, 2008

I am not suggesting that you spend your New Year with a divorce lawyer; I am only commenting on how people, in a bad relationship, view the beginning of the “New Year” as an opportunity to get a “Fresh Start”.

Thousands of Britons called their divorce lawyers or marriage counselors Monday, a day widely referred to as D-Day because of the large number of people filing for divorce after spending long periods of time with spouses over the holidays.

Many British divorce lawyers said that in recent years they have noticed that their busiest day of the year is the Monday of the first full week back to work after New Year’s. Divorce lawyers in the United States have also reported a similar bulge after the holidays.

Are You A Victim Of Emotional Infidelity?

Posted by familydynamics on December 28, 2007

According to an on-going poll of over 1,000 women conducted by, about 51 percent of women believed that viewing porn was emotional cheating. In a similar WomanSaver’s poll, 63 percent of all women felt that online affairs constituted infidelity. The main difference between physical infidelity and emotional infidelity is physical contact.

Physical infidelity involves people meeting directly and then engaging in physical intimacy. Emotional infidelity can occur in distant locations with absolutely no physical contact occurring. The primary difference between traditional cheating and emotional infidelity is actual, physical contact. With emotional infidelity, there may be a meeting, but it can occur on a cell phone or a computer.

Some people who emotionally cheat don’t consider the act to be a true form of infidelity because there is no physical contact. Others see no difference between physical and emotional infidelity because emotional infidelity has the same basic behavioral actions as traditional infidelity.

Do you believe there is a difference between physical and emotional infidelity?
