WHAT IT'S LIKE TO DATE AFTER DIVORCE IN THREE WORDS

If you're getting back into the dating scene after a divorce, you're no doubt realizing that things have changed quite a bit since you were last single. (Tinder and ghosting and what to wear -- oh my!)
You're not the only one who's a bit befuddled by the whole process. We recently asked HuffPost Divorce readers to sum up their post-divorce dating experience in just three words. The general consensus? It can drive you crazy but once you meet someone you connect with, it's ultimately worth the effort.

WHAT WE CAN LEARN ABOUT PRENUPS FROM THE BEN AFFLECK-JENNIFER GARNER DIVORCE

Earlier this week, the world learned that beloved Hollywood couple Jennifer Garner, 43, and Ben Affleck, 42, have decided to split—ten years and one day after their wedding. If you read the tabloids, you’ll know the breakup has been coming for awhile. Indeed, the couple has been separated for months, and it seems clear that the timing of the divorce filing, initiated by Garner, was not a coincidence.

4 BEHAVIORS CAN PREDICT DIVORCE

Ever been in the middle of a heated argument when suddenly the other person pulls out their phone and starts texting?
If the answer is yes, and if you find it happening constantly, we hope that person isn't your significant other.
This behavior, known as stonewalling, is one of four reactions that John Gottman, a psychologist at the University of Washington and the founder of the Gottman Institute, has identified as a telltale sign that all is not well with a married couple.

8 THINGS SINGLE MOMS AND DADS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TAXES

Unmarried parents face a unique set of concerns in life, and that includes taxes Before filing, consider these federal tax considerations:
  • Head of household status. If you were unmarried on Dec. 31, 2014, earn at least 50 percent of your household income and your kids live with you for 6 months of the year or more total, file as head of household. This usually affords you a lower tax rate and higher deductions.
  • Determine who you can claim as a dependent. This determines whither you can take any number of other credits and deductions. This is usually stipulated in a separation or divorce agreement, and the parent who would normally claim the child can agree to sign a waiver allowing a non-custodial parent to make the claim. You cannot split this deduction for a single child, but some parents agree to take turns claiming children on alternate years, or if there are two or more children, agreeing that each parent can claim one of the kids. However, the IRS determines that a child is a dependent based on if the child lived with a parent for at least six months and was financially supported for the same time.

CHILD CUSTODY - THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD

When courts need to make decisions about child custody and visitation, they consider what arrangement will be in the child’s best interests. (They are much more interested in what’s best for the child than they are in the parents’ concerns.) Most judges consider things like whether the current situation is working well for the child (if so, they’re unlikely to change it) and which parent will be most likely to support the child’s relationship with the other parent (a cooperative parent definitely has an advantage in a custody dispute). Beyond these basic things, though, each state has its own rules about what is in the child’s best interests.

DEPRESSION FROM DIVORCE

Experiencing grief and depression from divorce is common when a person's marriage ends. The sense of loss can be comparable to the pain of losing a loved one. In essence, it is the death of your marriage. It can be a very sad time in your life as you lay to rest all the dashed hopes and dreams. Right now, you may feel as if you’ll never love anyone the way that you loved your husband.

CHILDREN'S NEEDS WHILE GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE

A child's psychological needs are greatly increased during and after a divorce. They live in the middle of an economic and emotional roller coaster, experiencing guilt, fear and confusion. If parents are consciously focused on and sensitive to their child's needs during and after a divorce, they will do a better job of meeting them.

In Dr. Phil's book, Family First: Your Step-by-Step Plan for Creating a Phenomenal Family, he lists the most profound needs of children while going through a divorce — a time when they may be on an emotional roller coaster of guilt, fear and confusion. Your overall goal should be to meet all of these needs, in order to minimize the price your child has to pay for you and your ex being unable to sustain your relationship.
