Are you happy at the moment? All things considered, I’d have to say yes. I am healthy, my children are healthy and we have all that we need in life and I’m excited about this chapter. If you could go back and say anything to your 16-year-old self now – what would it be? When [...]Read More →
How about you try this one on for size. The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers says that two thirds of divorce attorneys cite Facebook as evidence in the bust up of marriages. You may recall the story of the New Jersey minister who called Facebook “a portal to infidelity” and told his church leaders to [...]Read More →
Hi Will, Here’s my question… How soon is too soon to sleep with a man? I mean, in college we held off because we didn’t want to get a bad reputation. But let’s face it, everybody needs to get their groove on every so often and women are no different. So honest answer Will, would [...]Read More →
My question is a funny one as it’s not about kids or parenting – but I hope you can help!
My boyfriend Jake and I have been together for 4 years, live together and are close to settling down, getting married and doing the whole family thing!
About a year ago we adopted a rescue dog called Charlie, a Dalmatian, who’s about 3 years old and just adorable!
However as lovely as Charlie is he’s completely out of control. He drinks water from the toilet bowl, sometimes pees in our house, steals food from our plates and runs wild when we try and take him out.
I’ve been trying to train him but Jake is completely uninterested and uninvested in helping me discipline our dog. He loves Charlie – he just can’t see to be bothered.
I know it sounds silly – but I’m starting to wonder if this is the man I want to settle down and have kids with. If he can’t take the time for a dog – what will he be like with children? To be honest Jake also doesn’t really help much around the house either, and I deal with all the bills and do all the cooking and cleaning (even though we both work full time jobs)
Do you think I’m being too sensitive? Or do you see problems ahead?

I’ve got a bit of a mess on my hands at the moment and would love your advice.
My husband Ray and I are good friends with another couple Carrie and Jim.
Well a couple of years ago Carrie confided in me that she’d had a one-night stand while on a business trip overseas. She said it didn’t mean anything and was a mistake but she didn’t see any reason to tell Jim and cause him unnecessary hurt. I agreed.
I told my husband, thinking he could keep the secret – but recently he and Carrie had a silly argument during a night out and he brought up the one night stand – right in front of her husband…
Now Carrie and Jim are fighting, Carrie is mad at me, and I’m furious with my husband for spilling the beans…
My question is – a) what should I do next to smooth everything over and b) are there any topics that are off limits between husband and wife? Is it a given that when you tell someone a secret, their partner will automatically be in the know too?Read More →
Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi (and quite frankly it scares me that I know their last names without having to look it up) are from the last season of ABC’s The Bachelor. Jake hails from Texas, where I spent many years and Vienna, oh who the heck knows? But somehow these two misfits wound up together, their short union, solidified by a rose ceremony. Oh brother.
Now Good Enough Mother would like her children to know, and anyone else who will listen, that this is not real life. The idea that these two people were somehow made for each other and it was all played out on national TV is more than laughable.Read More →
