Episode 028: Crazy Dates, Cops, & A Book with special guest Robert James My very favorite podcast. Fun and entertaining. Robert James goes back into the dating world after 20 some years of married life. He found out it had changed big time. In the process, a friend suggested he change his wardrobe and maybe even his hair style. He did update his wardrobe,but the hair style has stayed. Online dating was his choice — first just emails, then phone conversations and then the dates. His assistant at work would always inquire about how the dates worked out for him. After hearing how different the dates were she suggested he keep a journal. So he did. Who knew this would inspire Robert to write a book?! He self-published his work. His son suggested he open a Twitter account and post excerpts from his book. He now has over 35,000 followers. His book “Next! The Search For My Last First Date” has drawn attention from a Hollywood screenwriter with the possibility of being made into a movie. Robert shared various date stories about the strange things these woman did. They were so funny and unbelievable. I was totally entertained. It was such fun to listen to. I

Episode 028: Crazy Dates, Cops, and A Book! with special guest Robert James Ever have a weird date? The boyfriend had a weird occurrence after dating someone for several months. His ex showed up at a Laundromat to talk to him. The Boyfriend hadn’t told her where he did laundry. She just staked out the one closest to his place. He wasn’t scared about what she might do, but he certainly didn’t want any negative confrontation. Leanne accepted a date with someone on the phone thinking it was someone else so she was surprised when a completely different person picked her up. One time she was set up on a blind date with a pediatrician. He annoyed her by calling her sweetie, ordering for her without asking, and was rude the servers at dinner. Overall, Leanne and The Boyfriend have experienced some bad dates or dates they had no connection with. Meet Robert James, divorcee and author of the book Next! The search for my last first date. He married his college sweetheart and divorced after 20 years. Once it fell apart he did his best to move on. Robert never planned on writing a book, but he had encouragement from an assistant who worked

Episode 027: What’s your divorce plan with Leanne Linsky & The Boyfriend I did listen to today  podcast and found it a worthwhile topic. So many of us have at one time or another thought about this either for ourselves, friends, or even family members. A couple’s state of mind can vary due to their circumstances. It can be very emotional, hateful, or spiteful. It can still be quite the undertaking in even the best cases. Your reminding listeners about state law is so important. Sharing the cost also is also important. Couples should undo their assets fairly and in a timely fashion along with deciding who takes what. Dealing with the children and pets are probably the hardest, as there are many emotions to deal with. Divorce has to be the most difficult and heart wrenching thing a couple can go through. Great advice today. Love your podcast. Each week Mom-nonymous shares her thoughts on the episode. Mom-nonymous is a wife, mom, and listener of Life Lafter Divorce Podcast. She’s been married for over 50 years, has never been divorced, and would like to remain anonymous.

Episode 026: Triple Threat

By lifelafterdivorce|July 31, 2017|Show notes, Uncategorized|

Episode 026: Triple Threat with special guest Karen Beach As we know, divorce affects everyone. However, it affects some more than others. For instance, I’ve been divorced twice, which is two more times than I would have liked, but it happened. If I had children, they would have been affected twice, too. So what about children of divorce who grow up and have a divorce of their own? That’s a double whammie! Now those divorced children of divorce are back out there dating and run into other divorcees. Bam! That’s a 3-pointer right there. It’s hard enough handling it from one angle, but they’re getting it from all sides. How does someone handle that? Meet Karen Beach, child of divorce, divorcee, and divorced child of divorce dating other divorcees. As we call it in theater, “she’s a triple threat!” Karen’s parents divorced when she was thirteen and her dad’s bipolar disorder was creating issues. Karen was very aware of what was happening and began to take on a lot of the household responsibilities as her parent’s focus began to change. Her father’s bipolar disorder wasn’t out in the open, but as Karen sought guidance from teachers and some independent research, she eventually figured it out.

Episode 025: Without A Net with special guest Lex Morales Lex and his wife grew up in the same religion. His parents had divorced at some time. Lex and his girlfriend dated for awhile and had sexual relations.They admitted their sins to the church elders and for this she was shunned from her church for a year. They did get back together dated and became engaged, then marrying at the end of that year. The religion didn’t dictate he marry her but he felt it was the right thing to do. As time passed on they were not so happy or in agreement on having children. So they lived in the same house slept in separate bedrooms not talking with one another. Agreed to counseling which didn’t solve anything either. Jeff left the church, shortly after they divorced and once again his wife was shunned by the church. His best friend committed suicide and when Lex attended his funeral none of her family and friends would talk to him but called him names. Divorce doesn’t come easy and without a support group of family and friends you are lost. Reflecting on his religion and the control or should I say rules one understands you lost

Episode 025: Without A Net (experiencing divorce without any support) with special guest Lex Morales Divorce is tough enough with the love and support of your community. Imagine how different your experience would be without it. NYC comedian, Lex Morales, opens up and shares details from his divorce that he’s never shared with anyone before. In fact, he didn’t talk to many people about it at all, not even in the midst of it. Leaving a marriage and his faith left him without the support of a community he thought he could count on. Lex believed he could find happiness and a better life. And he did.   Links https://www.facebook.com/lexreuben https://twitter.com/funwithlex  https://www.instagram.com/funwithlex/. www.lifelafterdivorce.com www.twitter.com/lafterdivorce https://www.facebook.com/LifeLafterDivorce/ https://www.instagram.com/lifelafterdivorce/

Episode 24: Never Married / Never Divorced with special guest Dennis Holden I have just listened to Dennis Holden on Life Lafter Divorce. I do wish I knew how old he is to put his thoughts in perspective. He does know what he wants in a partner: Humor being No. 1 Compassion for # 2 a positive mindset also. His analogy of “jumping into the lake means now you are out of the pool”. Well Dennis that’s what a commitment is. I think your fears outline your real desires for a marriage. I do think you are clear on what you would like to have in a marriage; 1 sense of humor 2 compassionate and 3 a positive mindset –are all good traits. But you may be over thinking this and all your fears come back. When you do date the right person you will know it and and get past her short comings as she will yours. Happiness between two people is what it’s all about. Good Luck to you. Each week Mom-nonymous shares her thoughts on the episode.
