SHOULD I CREATE A CALIFORNIA PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT?

Don't prenups indicate a lack of trust?  Even though one in ten couples enter into some kind of prenuptial or premarital agreement (“prenups”), many fiancĂ©s remain reluctant to consider a prenup because they believe it seems unromantic and indicates a lack of trust. There are several reasons why this reluctance is misplaced.
You can gain control over your future financial situation.  If you don’t sign a prenup, your marriage will be governed by a complex set of laws. In California, these laws are the California Family Code and Probate Code. The choice is between a set of rules negotiated by you and your fiancĂ©, or those imposed by the State, over which you will have no control. And remember, prenups can be drafted to protect both spouses, not just a wealthy spouse.

NBA STAR DWAYNE WADE ON BEING A SINGLE DAD

I'm on the road a lot during the NBA season. Needless to say, I miss my sons, Zaire, who's 10, and Zion, 5, so much when I'm gone. As a single dad with sole custody of my children, keeping the lines of communication open while I'm traveling is the top priority. Zaire has a BlackBerry, and he loves to text and use instant messaging. Some days, we exchange up to 50 messages between us. Zion keeps asking if he can have his own phone, but I told him he has to wait until he's at least 7. For now, phone calls and Skype will have to do.
When I'm away, we always set aside a specific time to talk every day, no matter what. When I was in China, we still had our daily phone call. I always ask how their day was. Even though I'm not there, I still want to share in the experience of being home: something new they learned in school that day, or an accomplishment they made on the basketball court. It comes down to two words: attention and affection. You never want your children to have to look outside of their parents for those two things.

WHY ENGAGED COUPLES SHOULD SIGN A PRE-NUP

Although prenuptial agreements are often associated with celebrity couples -- and their headline-generating divorces -- they're not just for boldface names.
Any couple who brings personal or business assets to the marriage can benefit from a prenup. The most basic of these contracts lists an inventory of premarital assets that in the event of a divorce will remain the property of their original owner.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT DATING AS A SINGLE PARENT

When it comes to dating as a single parent, there is one single most important thing to consider, above everything else:
Would you allow your potential partner to date your child? Or in other words, is your potential partner good enough for your kids?Time and time again, I see women and men dating people who don't exactly cut it: The man whose girlfriend treats him like a bank account and handyman; The woman whose boyfriend treats her like a "sidepiece" and inconvenience.

10 LESSONS MY DIVORCE TAUGHT ME ABOUT LASTING LOVE

I've learned a lot of lessons over the last 20 years since my divorce. It dawned on me recently that even though I didn't have a divorce party (just wasn't in the mood) it doesn't mean that I can't mark the 20th anniversary of my divorce in some way.  So here it goes, my list of the 10 most important lessons I've learned in the last two decades:
1. Your partner is not going to change. In other words, you can't change a cat into a dog. Love just isn't enough to significantly alter a person's basic nature and upbringing. For instance, if you fall in love with someone who is reserved and you need outward signs of affection to feel secure, you'll feel chronically dissatisfied. Most likely, these differences will probably erode loving feelings over time and diminish positive interactions in your relationship.

8 PIECES OF ADVISE FOR DIVORCE IN YOUR 20's

It's easy to be hard on yourself when going through divorce in your 20s. While all your friends are busy planning their weddings on Pinterest, you're planning a new life without your spouse and dealing with mounting legal bills.
To make the process a little easier, we asked experts -- divorce lawyers, psychologists and financial advisors -- to offer their best advice. Here's what they had to say:
1. Chalk the divorce up to a lapse in judgment. 
Don't fall into the trap of feeling like a failure for splitting up in your 20s. Forgive yourself and remember that you were young and maybe a little naive when you said "I do," said Andra Brosh, a Los Angeles-based psychologist.
