Surprise! Surprise! King of the One Liners, Barry Weisenberg, returns to share with us. Today Barry has found happiness with The Very Best Woman Ever (we’ll refer to her as The Girlfriend from this point forward). They met on Match.com. The girlfriend, now divorced, had been married for 20 years with two children. Both she and Barry knew on their first date that it felt right. Barry was single after a ten-year relationship, which gave him a son. Barry shares custody with his ex. Now that relationship is behind him, has finally found THE ONE. They are immensely happy with one another. The Girlfriend has updated his look, cooks for him, and can do his comedy if needed. She enjoys seeing him perform. What could be better than that for a comic? The Girlfriend even likes his son and enjoys spending time with him. Sounds like everything is right for the two of you. It’s better than winning at Bingo! Sorry, Barry, even this blogger can be funny. I do wish you both the best. 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
Episode 098: Moving on After Divorce with special guest David J. Glass, JD, PhD J D Glass Family Law Attorney and Author of a Best Selling Book “Moving On” was an especially informative guest this week. Not only is David an attorney, but he’s also has a degree in Psychology. He worked as a therapist, but decided that law better suited him. He and his first met while in law school. They married, had two daughters, and lived in Philadelphia. A few years later they moved to California which offered big promises. His wife went into Real Estate and David practiced family law. They drifted apart and both agreed it was time to move on. The two of them worked out custody issues for their girls and had an amicable divorce. Being single again meant getting back into a social network with friends in his free time. Prior to divorce, David and his wife went to couples therapy and learned how to work things out in a new way. It was a smart thing to do. They brainstormed solutions instead of knocking heads over one. Loved your idea of holding the egg and how to agree who has the bigger issue right now and deal with that

Episode 097: Reduce Holiday Stress For Your Kids with special guest Alan Plevy Alan Plevy is a Top Family Law Attorney at Smolen Plevy. This was very fitting for your discussion today about holidays and family gatherings, especially between divorced parents. Take time to plan ahead on when and where your children will be going for the holidays. If you can’t agree, get a mediator for help. Be fair, have plans in writing and stick to whatever you have decided. The kids need to know the plan, what to wear, and what to take along for their stay – especially if it’s an overnighter. They may need certain toiletries or a stuffed toy they sleep with. Create some family traditions. Bake cookies, go ice skating, or go sledding. If you’re living in a warmer climate go bike riding or hiking. Anything outdoors can be fun. Other ideas include, board games, reading stories, or maybe caroling. Keep it simple and teach kids to be charitable. Its’ that time of year, and giving does lift one’s spirit. Buying a joint gift (from both Mom and Dad) is great – maybe a puppy or bike that can go with them on their weekends to the other parent’s home.

Episode 096: The Funny Thing About Relationships with Barry Weisenberg This week’s guest, Barry Weisenberg, “King of One Liners” Stand Up Comedian, tells how relationships affect comedy and vise versa. On board with this is Leanne Linsky, another Stand Up Comic. They compare notes and The Boyfriend joins in with lots of questions. What a fun episode this was! Comedy is a science which takes a lot of thought, writing, and reflection of moments in their lives. For Barry, it goes back to his childhood, bullying, and rejection. Barry said that at times he had really low self esteem, depressen, and even thoughts of suicide. Relationships can also affect us that way. However, these two comics share more in their comedic skills. While waiting in the wings to go on stage and observing other comics they learn so much. When a comic bombs, and they have all done that at one time or another, they relate to that feeling. They will encourage that comic to come back and do something new next time. The more you perform the more you learn. Sometimes doing comedy makes for short relationships. The nightly hours don’t always work. Significant others have to enjoy your humor and talent. It takes
