    A woman has successfully appealed against a court order to contribute S$1,500 [$1,137.25USD]for the monthly maintenance of her children post-divorce, after suffering an adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine that left her wheelchair-bound and jobless. The woman and her husband divorced in 2016. The man then relocated to the United States in 2022, taking their two children aged 16 and 18 with him. The woman, however, had suffered a severe adverse reaction to her second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in March 2021, according to a High Court judgment released on Friday (Jan 13).

    First comes love, then comes an indeterminate period of conveniently living together to decide whether your partner’s dishwasher-loading habits are a dealbreaker, then comes marriage.Today a lot of young daters assume moving in together is a prerequisite for matrimonial success. But it actually hikes up a couple’s proclivity toward divorce compared to spouses who wed without first cohabitating — a statistic that shocked hosts Jordyn Woodruff and Alex Bennett of Barstool Sports’ “Mean Girl” podcast in Wednesday’s episode.“Couples who live together before marrying have nearly an 80 percent higher divorce rate than those who do not,” Bennett noted incredulously.

    THE Philippines has rejected outright the recommendation of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to legalize same-sex marriage, as well as to allow abortion and divorce. Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said such recommendations of other UN member-states during last week's Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in Geneva are "not acceptable." "It's a matter of policy whether we accept it or not and I think we know as a country, we are not ready for that," Remulla said in a press briefing on Monday. poster "Culturally, our values may conflict with many of the values that they (Western countries) want...

    Some time ago, I was out walking when I saw a group of female ‘friends’ I’d met when I first moved to a small village in Oxfordshire. We’d all been to each other’s social gatherings over the years. We’d done nursery school as co-parents. We’d decorated the church, showed up at Christmas fetes, helped dress each other’s children in fancy dress for school parties. We’d bonded over the usual things — husbands, work, dogs, children. We’d done sponsored walks together and even been away for a weekend to a spa.

Cooper has only spent eight and a half hours with Sophia, now almost 16, since the child left her house in 2019.“I have an understanding of the concept of...

    I have the honor of serving as the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, and I’ve had a successful and fulfilling career as a gang and homicide prosecutor, but the most important title I will ever hold is being called “dad” by my two sons. It is the privilege of my life to be able to raise them to be kind, courageous and most importantly, to know that I will always love, support and protect them. When I took the helm of the Florida House back in 2020, the cyclical issues affecting our families and society became increasingly apparent...

    had wanted, I thought, soapstone counters and a farmhouse sink. I had wanted an island and a breakfast nook and two narrow, vertical cabinets on either side of the stove; one could be for cutting boards and one could be for baking sheets. I followed a cabinetry company called Plain English on Instagram and screenshotted its pantries, which came in paint colors like Kipper and Boiled Egg. Plain English cost a fortune, but around a corner in the back of its New York showroom you could check out the budget version, called British Standard. But it cost a fortune too....

    The ruler of Dubai was ordered to pay his princess ex-wife and their children more than $730 million in the most expensive divorce settlement in British history. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, 72, was ordered in London’s High Court on Tuesday to pay Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, a half-sister of Jordan’s King Abdullah II, a lump sum of around $333 million within the next three months. He also has to immediately pay several million more for the education of their children — Al Jalila, 14, and Zayed, 9 — and then guarantee $385 million to cover future payments.

    When relationships end it might be because the spark has disappeared, or maybe you just can’t make time for one another. But can climate change cause break-ups? It might do, according to a new study which suggests albatrosses – some of the world’s most loyal creatures – are “divorcing” more. Research published in the Royal Society journal looked at 15,500 breeding pairs in the Falkland Islands over 15 years. Albatross divorce is basically just cheating, in human terms. It’s when one part of a couple mates with a different individual. Like humans, albatrosses also have an awkward growing-up phase, trying...

    When Goldman asked whether the seemingly low number was “for tax purposes,” Porizkova claimed, “Yes, it was. … In the very early days, they just had to put down a number. So they just put down a low sum, so that it wouldn’t seem like he was maybe holding away a lot of money from me? I don’t know. I’m not sure.” She added, “I know exactly how much I’m owed under New York law, how much is due to me. And I am getting it. The estate is settling with me.”
