Recently, TIME Magazine ecstatically broke the “news” that women over 30 are still totally “dateable.” But here’s another newsflash: not all single women (over 30 or not) are desperately looking for a date, much less a for-life mate.

Indeed, plenty of wo…

Interesting: Instafam

The name tags are laid out for the parent-teacher meet-and-greet. My name isn’t there. I Sharpie “Sarah Humphreys” on a blank one, but that doesn’t clarify much, because I am actually the fiance of the dad of a new student going into kindergarten. Which is as hard to jam into conversation as it is to fit on a tag.

I had spent nearly 37 years as a relatively single, relatively happy, hardworking New York City girl. I planned fun vacations, mastered needlepoint stitches beyond the bas…

I wonder what the implications are of this: 20 Lessons About Divorce I Wish I Could’ve Told the Younger Me

I met the woman of my dreams while living in Hawaii and was married for 15 years. Things were great for most of it. We decided to split in August, 2011. She moved out two months later.

California law affecting what we call “spousal support” creates a situation where the supported spouse has, in many cases, little if any incentive to work. Moreover, the legal presumption that one who is married for ten years or more is entitled to support until death or remarriage is patently unfair, mandating that the payor of support continue to fund the recipient’s lifestyle for years far beyond the duration of the marriage.

Not exactly shocking: 11 Pieces Of Relationship ‘Advice’ You’re Probably Sick Of Hearing

We all know someone who constantly offers unwanted commentary on our relationships: Still single? “You need to get yourself out there!” Happily coupled up? “It’s been a while, are you guys thinking marriage yet?” Newly single after a split? “Don’t worry, I’m sure you won’t stay single for long!”

They may be well meaning, but their advice is less than constructive — especially if they’re just dishing out relationship cliches we’ve all heard.
