What is Infidelity?

No doubt the revelation of the identities of millions of married people who have used “Ashley Madison,” an internet site dedicated to marital infidelity (“Life is short; have an affair”), has caused many people to reexamine what conduct on the part of a spouse or partner is infidelity:  Are thinking, looking, sexting, acts of infidelity?  Read More

Quality Time and Child Access

Recently, the Washington Post reported a study by Canadian and American researchers that concluded that “quality time” is more related to successful outcomes for children than the “quantity of time” parents spend with their children.  A bit of history may contribute to this discussion. I would start this history with the decades during which courts Read More

Grounds for Divorce?

I do not know whether Reader’s Digest still fills in space after articles with oddities and jokes, but I recall that the magazine sometimes published laws that were found on the books of States, Cities and Counties that no longer had any purpose, but did amuse its readers.  Lost in the mists of time were Read More

“Typical” Families

The Washington Post published another fascinating article on changing families this morning, citing a report from the Council on Contemporary Families being released today.  The study shows empirically what we know to be true (and what I blog about frequently) – families are more diverse than ever, and it is not necessarily a bad thing.  Read More

Millennials Say “No” to Marriage

An article that was posted Sunday from CNNMoney reads, “When it comes to marriage, Millennials[1] are saying ‘I don’t.’” The entire article, sans graphics, can be summarized in the first paragraph:          Today’s young adults are on track have the lowest rates of marriage by age 40 compared to any previous generation.

The Supreme Court yesterday denied Mandamus in In Re Electronic Privacy Information Center, a case that would have challenged the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court’s order to Verizon to disclose local telephone calls to the National Security Agency.  See Order List here.
