  • Wife Gets Divorce From Man Who Loved Her More Than His Mother

    Saudi Gazette ^ | 1/1 | Ali Al-Rubaie
    A 29-year-old Saudi man was in for the shock of his life when his wife, whom he loved so much, approached the court for a divorce. The estranged husband did not know why his wife would want divorce from him even though he did everything possible for her, but she was adamant in her demand. She admitted that her husband had never denied anything to her but she insisted on leaving him because he preferred her over his own mother. "I can never trust a man who does everything for his wife while he denies even a small favor to...
  • 2018 Will be the "Year of Divorce"- Tax Law Changes

    For any divorce or separation agreement executed after Dec. 31, 2018, the act provides that alimony and separate maintenance payments are not deductible by the payer spouse. It repealed the provisions that provided that those payments were includible in income by the payee spouse. This will diminish the income benefits of increasing alimony and decreasing property settlement to take advantage of the differences in tax rates and deductions between the former spouses.

    FORMER Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue has revealed how going broke has led him to the brink of suicide. The 34-year-old Ivorian used to make millions in the Premier League but is now sleeping on his friend's floor, washing his clothes by hand and hiding from bailiffs.In an interview with the Sunday Mirror, Eboue told how he lost a divorce battle that left his wife Aurelie with all of their assets and how he has no contact with his daughters Clara, 14, and Maeva, 12. "The money I earned, I sent it to my wife for our children. “In Turkey I...

    She just wanted to bring him a meal from Al Baik. In one of the most bizarre divorce cases to be reported in Saudi Arabia, a man recently divorced his wife because she left home to get a surprise meal for him on his birthday. According to Ain Al Youm, the woman went to popular Saudi restaurant Al Baik, in Al Kherj governorate, to pick up her husband's favorite meal after she'd set up everything to surprise him at home. Speaking to the local news site, a social worker who handled the case, explained that when the wife was...
  • When A Licentious Culture Becomes An Accusatory Culture

    Jewish Press ^ | December 13, 2017 | Sara Lehmann
    Another day, another allegation. Or two or three allegations. The era of sexual McCarthyism has dawned and shows no sign of abating. And as the accusations reach back farther and farther in time, the chasm between those decades and today becomes ever more glaringly incongruous. What could be more ironic than the fact that we are experiencing an unprecedented outbreak of long-belated sexual harassment charges in a generation defined by its sexual licentiousness? We are, after all, living in an era that a 2013 article on the American Psychological Association website dubbed the “Sexual Hook-up Culture.” A time of “uncommitted...

    A few months after becoming pastor of Parkway Baptist Church, a 21-year-old Armour D. Stephenson III, or “AD3” as he is affectionately known, sat down with his deacons — almost all men over 40 — and laid out plans for his own version of the great flood. “The entire dynamic of our church was about to change,” AD3 recalls of the fateful 2006 meeting. His first decree: “Stop wearing suits on Sundays.” The congregation’s response? An exodus. Membership dwindled from about 300 to a low of 85. “Any time you’re shifting culture, there’s going to be some casualties,” AD3 says.
  • Mississippi Supreme Court to decide if boy’s legal ‘biological’ parents are two lesbians

    Life Site News ^ | December 8, 2017 | Doug Mainwaring
    The Mississippi Supreme Court heard arguments last week about whether a boy born to a lesbian couple should be legally considered the biological son of his mother's female partner. Because of the nature of the child’s conception and the relationship of the adults in his life, the story is complicated. The two women who were “married” chose to have a child that would be conceived in one of them via anonymous sperm donation. The boy is now six years old. His mother’s “ex-spouse,” who helped raise the child from birth, sought to be recognized as a biological parent when the...

    New York Post ^ | November 30, 2017 | Julia Marsh and Chris Perez
    It looks like The Mooch is out of the dog house. Court records show that Anthony Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre Ball, decided to drop her divorce case against him Wednesday. And sources close to Scaramucci confirmed their renewed relationship status to The Post on Thursday — saying they were, in fact, a couple again. The pair had bitterly parted ways back in July, with Page Six exclusively reporting that they were ending their three-year marriage because Ball was sick of Scaramucci’s “naked political ambition.”

    Since details of the new tax overhaul bill were released on Nov. 2, people of all income levels and ages have been trying to figure out how they could be affected going forward. One group of folks not likely to be happy: those paying alimony. Section 1309 of the House bill would eliminate the deductibility of alimony. Killing the alimony deduction is one of the smaller revenue targets for the House Republican tax bill, yet it is exceedingly significant to the people affected. Under current rules, alimony payors may deduct their payments from their taxable incomes, thus lowering their income...
  • Why parents should never spank children

    The Conversation ^ | Oct 29, 2017 | T.O. Afifi, E. Romano
    The research clearly shows that spanking is related to an increased likelihood of many poor health, social and developmental outcomes. These poor outcomes include mental health problems, substance use, suicide attempts and physical health conditions along with developmental, behavioural, social and cognitive problems. Equally important, there are no research studies showing that spanking is beneficial for children. Those who say spanking is safe for a child if done in a specific way are, it would seem, simply expressing opinions. And these opinions are not supported by scientific evidence.

    TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - According to a new report released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) the number of cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis reported in the United States reached all-time highs in 2016. In the U.S., there were 1.6 million cases of chlamydia and 470,000 cases of gonorrhea last year. “Increases in STDs are a clear warning of a growing threat,” said Jonathan Mermin, M.D., M.P.H., director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. “STDs are a persistent enemy, growing in number, and outpacing our ability to respond.” The increase...

    Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner both showed up to a Manhattan courthouse Wednesday to go before a divorce judge. Abedin, the longtime close aide to Hillary Clinton, arrived at 2:05 p.m., wearing a trim black suit and high black pumps, carrying a white handbag. She was with her lawyer and only offered a polite, “Hi” to reporters. Thirty seconds later, Weiner arrived with his lawyer. The disgraced former congressman from Queens wore black slacks, blue-grey blazer, brown shoes. “I have no comment at all,” he said as he posed for photographers. “Got what you need? I’d hate for you guys...

    Market Watch ^ | 08/19/2017 | Angela Moore
    Looking ahead to the next phase of life can seem pretty dreadful if you can’t stand the person who you’ll be spending it with. That may be what some boomers are facing. Among U.S. adults ages 50 and older, the divorce rate has roughly doubled since the 1990s, according to a recent Pew Research Center report. Statistically speaking we’re healthier and probably going to be living a lot longer — possibly 30 years longer — than average retirees once did. The surge in late-in-life — or “gray” — divorce is one possibly unintended consequence of this so-called longevity bonus. Read:...

    A divorce coach who charges $2,500 a session to advise women how to leave their husbands has insisted she is not a “marriage wrecker.” Single Emma Heptonstall ditched her high-flying job as a lawyer and set herself up as a self-proclaimed “divorce alchemist” — teaching mainly women, but occasionally men, how to have “happy splits.” The 44-year-old said: “I’m the divorce alchemist for ladies who leave. I know some people think I am not in a position to advise, having never been married, but I think that makes me objective.” “I’m not going to compare my situation with other people’s...

  • India's Supreme Court Declares Triple Talaq Unconstitutional

    Dunya News ^ | 22 August,2017
    India’s top court on Tuesday banned a controversial Islamic practice that allows men to divorce their wives instantly, ending a long tradition that many Muslim women had fiercely opposed. The Supreme Court ruled that the practice of "triple talaq", whereby Muslim men can divorce their wives by reciting the word talaq (divorce) three times, was both unconstitutional and un-Islamic. Victims including Shayara Bano, whose husband used triple talaq to divorce her by letter in 2015, had approached India’s highest court to ask for a ruling. A panel of five judges from India’s major faiths -- Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism and...

    With every week, life under the Trump administration becomes more unnerving. The administration is trying to “phase out” the 15,000 trans people in the military, Trump is basically threatening nuclear war with North Korea and Mueller is tapping a Grand Jury to look into the Russia connection. We live in interesting times, and by interesting, I mean on the very verge of the second dark ages. Or, at least, some people believe that. Other people believe everything is fine, somehow.

    Anthony Scaramucci's wife, Deidre Ball, has filed for divorce from the White House's new communications director, according to a new report. "Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce," a source told Page Six. "She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits' end. She has left him even though they have two children together."
