Source: Darren Baker/Shutterstock If I wanted to know how people who are not married are doing when they reach the age of 65 and beyond, I would ask them about the joys and successes of their lives, as well as their challenges and difficulties. But social scientists haven’t often viewed single seniors as people who are psychologically strong and resilient , so instead they study only the “strains” in their lives. Nonetheless, I’m grateful for a study that does not toss all unmarried people into the same bin, but instead asks about the experiences of the different kinds of unmarried people. Among seniors, who experiences single life as especially difficult? Is it the lifelong single people, who never got a taste of marriage ? Or is it the widowed people or maybe the divorced ? Do Blacks or Whites experience more “single strain”? Does it depend on whether we are talking about women or men? What counts as “single strain”? The researchers conducted face-to-face … [Read more...] about Do Lifelong Singles Fare Better Later in Life?
Source: Andrea Piacquadio/Pexels Over the past week, I had two experiences that either make me challenge my ability to function in the online world or represent the online world gone wild and a bit crazy in terms of trying to eliminate the human element. Story Number One I decided to take my 12-year-old car out for a drive just to make sure that things were working since I am driving very little these days. Everything was fine until a bright red light came on the screen saying, “Your tires are dangerously low, and you need to do something about it!” It didn’t really say that, but that’s what the big red flashing sign means. OK, I understand that tires sometimes go flat on their own, and I don’t know whether driving more or less makes a difference, but I received a signal to do something. As I was pulling back into my garage, it suddenly occurred to me that if something were to happen as I was driving to a gas station to refill my tires, I might get into deep trouble. In … [Read more...] about The Challenging Online World: How to Make the System Work for You
Over the years, I have discovered that some of my divorcing clients were hiding secrets. Sometimes the secrets were to be kept from their spouse, and other times the couple colluded to keep a secret from their attorneys or divorce coaches. The discovery of these secrets can quickly unravel an apparently amicable divorce and cause enormous damage to the soon-to-be-ex relationship. The divorce will become more adversarial, expensive, legally complex, and it will take much longer to reach a final resolution. Are you harboring a secret? It might be a lie or perhaps a lie by omission…you haven’t revealed something important and relevant to the divorce. When it is discovered, a divorce that started out as a “conscious uncoupling” may wind up in court, where a judge makes the decisions that will affect the rest of your life. Worse, if you have children, there will be serious damage to the co- parenting relationship and the children’s relationships with you and your co-parent. … [Read more...] about Are You or Your Spouse Keeping Secrets During Your Divorce?
Competing intentions. We all have them; Exercise as we intended, or spend another night as couch potato. A recent study on academic delay of gratification sheds some light on the self-regulatory skills and learning strategies that successful students use to delay gratification.
