Peaceful Divorce

Springtime in the Rockies and Your Relationships

“Partly Cloudy, Windy, Sun Mixed with Occasional Snow Showers”: Springtime in the Rockies & Your Relationships

We had snow the first weekend in April, driving, blinding, Colorado blizzard-type snow. The interstate north of us was closed, and cars were off the roads all over the place. I drive out to a local dairy on Saturdays to pick up our weekly dairy order, and could hardly see the road in some places; the wind was blowing snow so badly.

Two days later, it was warm, sunny, still, and my husband was outside pruning shrubbery, which has tender new green growth on all the plants in our garden. The crabapple tree in front of my office window is covered in buds, and looks likely to burst open in a profusion of pink blossoms any day now.

My dad used to say, “If you don’t like the weather in Colorado, just wait a minute”. This is never truer than in springtime. The season of spring - a time of new beginnings, new growth - is a bumpy, up and down time. Cold one day, hot the next, wind mixed with snow, mixed with sun. Springtime in the Rockies can be quite ride. Probably the most changeable season we have, far more so than autumn, spring is the season of biggest transition for us.

Eventually the weather evens out more, and we gradually find ourselves in summer. Summers in Colorado are wonderful - warm, sometimes hot days, but low humidity so you don’t feel exhausted all the time. Cool nights when the earth and the garden and families become refreshed. Summer in Colorado is a steady, even season. A few thunderstorms in July or August, but that is about all the storminess we have that time of year. No wonder we have crowds of tourists in summer as well as winter!

Relationships go through transitions, too, which subscribers read about this month in Creating Joy! the Relationship E-newsletter. Just as springtime in the Rockies can be a bumpy, tumultuous time of transition, but which does even out to the “lazy, hazy days of summer” in Colorado, so too, can the bumpy transition periods of relationships even out to stages of sweet fulfillment and fruition.

This month, even as you are creating a peaceful divorce, begin preparing yourself for a new happy marriage, and learn about the foundation Stages of Married Love, including which stages are the most tender transition points.

What Is a Caucus?

One of the guiding values in mediation and collaborative law is transparency. It comes with the territory when one is trying to establish trust with two different parties.

These meetings are called caucuses.Caucuses can be…See More

How Important Is the Budget in Divorce Planning?

I think everyone’s least favorite word is BUDGET. Why don’t we want to hear that word? Think about it: We’re asking ourselves to do something we don’t want to do — or worse yet, someone else is asking us to do it. While we might not like them, having a budget does help. In divorce planning — whether you are going to litigation,…See More

21st Century Parenting Plans

I remember when the default custody arrangement had one parent as the custodial parent, and the other parent was known as the “Disneyland parent.” They had their children every other weekend, and maybe once during the week for dinner. Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More
