A lot can happen in seven years — except, apparently, if you're Bethenny Frankel, and you want to move on from your ex. On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, the Skinnygirl mogul was feeling the stress of the constant battle, which currently has to do with custody issues (clip above). Major stress like that can take a toll mentally and even physically. Dr. Elizabeth Lasky, Ph.D., LCSW, tells Personal Space she feels for the mom of one.

Former brides are burning their wedding dresses during divorce parties, which are now the new trend in Ireland, according to an event planner. Throwing paint pots on the dress, halving toasters and even splitting friends between ex-couples are now often the rites of passage to celebrate the end of a marriage. Former Red Rock soap star and event planner Steven Mangan has been organising divorce parties for the last 10 years but says the end-of-marriage rituals have been really taking off in recent months. “I suppose I have helped to plan about 60 parties in the last year, mostly on [...]
“More often than not, parties who are separating are in a tense and highly emotional situation. The potential for conflict is high. Their interaction and communications may greatly frustrate the possibility of finding sensible resolution of their differences. Unless they find mechanisms or processes to control and reduce their disagreements, the situation can flare up in ways that drive them further apart and into long-term conflicts that can not be in their best interests. Alternative dispute resolution – such as mediation – can be very useful at such times and produce outcomes that reduce tension, control conflict and save time, [...]
At the end of 2017, a courageous individual – known in the case as RF – took the decision to take the Department for Work and Pensions to court over changes to personal independence payment regulations. The case was led by lawyers at the Public Law Project and supported by a number of charities, including Mind, Inclusion London, Revolving Doors, Disabled People Against Cuts, Disability Rights and the National Autistic Society. RF won and the DWP announced that it would review the entitlements for 1.6 million benefit claimants, with about 220,000 people expected to receive more money. It was a [...]
