Couples have many more choices than they did in the past. Today people can get married or stay single, have babies or remain childless, and go to work or be stay-at-home parents. Women can keep their name when they get married or change it, sometimes, men change their names too. The choice is up to you...
Let's talk about it!

Relationship Abuse is a pattern of abusive and coercive behaviors used to maintain power and control over a former or current intimate partner. Many assume that if they're not being physically abused by their partner, then they're not being abused. That's not necessarily true. An abusive relationship means more than being hit by the person who claims to love or care about you. Abuse can be emotional, psychological, financial, sexual or physical and can include threats, isolation, and intimidation. Abuse tends to escalate over time and can happen to anyone, regardless of size, gender, or strength, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. Noticing and acknowledging the warning signs and symptoms of domestic violence and abuse is the first step to ending it.
Join the ladies of OWWHH as we discuss the signs and symptoms of domestic abuse and the support available.
You are back on the dating scene after a serious break up. You’re enjoying the idea of some casual dating and getting back into the swing of things, but the relationship with your latest prospect is getting pretty serious. What’s the big deal? Well, dating this time around is a bit different because you are no longer on the market by yourself…you are now a package deal.
Dating after already having children can be reenergizing but also worrisome. In the midst of falling in love you are also burdened with questions: When should I introduce the kids to my new love? How? Should I talk to them about it first? What if they tell me don’t want to meet him, or worse, tell me they don’t want me dating anyone?
Introducing your children to your new partner is important. They will become a part of the child’s life as well as yours. The situation must be handled delicately, in the right time, and there are a few things you can do to make things go easier.
An affair is usually a symptom of other problems in a relationship. Now is the time for each of you to fully examine not only your relationship, but yourselves as well. Have we just run our course? Are we better off just as friends? Is there too much hurt to move on from this? A high percentage of the wronged partners will walk away and never look back, and then there are an impressive percentage of partners who decide to stay and give it another shot. Some relationships not only survive, but they actually grow in the aftermath of an affair. An affair challenges both partners to look at themselves and their relationship in a radically new way. Staying and trying to survive the betrayal and hurt is commendable but there are some things that need to be considered.
Whether you and your partner love each other unconditionally or whether the two of you fight every minute, your relationship is going down hill, and you feel like it's almost over. All relationships lose their sparkle and passion after a while and if you don't do something about it, you can easily become strangers and problems can surface. What can you do to get that "spark" back and have a thriving relationship again?
