Boating is one of my top favorite hobbies. The sun and surf are always gorgeous, and the time I spend with friends and family on the water is priceless. When my kids grew old enough to join us on the lake, I expected them to inherit a similar passion for watery fun — but to my surprise, one was utterly uninterested while the other was terrified of the loud motor, chopping waves, and distant shoreline. However, with a smart strategy (and ample patience) I was able to turn their frowns upside down. Here are five ways I got my kids to fall in love with boating.
Marriage is not an easy commitment, and for the longest time, the consensus is that about half of American marriages end in divorce. In a recent survey, however, researchers found that this rate is not all that accurate.
The New York Times published the results of this study, which shows that while divorce rates did increase in the 70s and 80s, they have dropped significantly in the last 20 years.
In fact, for couples who married in the 2000s, the divorce rate is around 15 percent! However, divorce is still not uncommon, not to mention separation.
San Diego Divorce Lawyer Sandy Meade says that while the divorce rate is going down, the reasons for divorce haven’t changed all that much. While people don’t enter a marriage planning divorce down the road, these reasons come up at some point, leading to a potentially disastrous situation.
