    Post-divorce period: when do not commitment relationships cease to be the norm

    Post-divorce period: when do not commitment relationships cease to be the norm

    The non-commitment in relations become common not only among those who are divorced but also among young people. The reason is the fear of repeating a failure in a relationship. In fact, such a reaction after a divorce is somewhat natural. But when a person spends many years in a relationship without commitment, it is worth seriously considering that this is not entirely normal. This is especially true among women since it is much easier for men to overcome this fear.

    The Meeting

    The Meeting

    In September 2016 I met him. Good looking, strong, confident, tall, deep voice. I paid him no attention. Honestly I just wanted to get the day over with. A group of us were headed to a recruiting sub station to run what was called an initial strength test in order to qualify for the Marine Corps. He did so well and I did so bad that I was embarrassed. I didn’t speak to him until I graduated boot camp that December. I felt so motivated as most new Marines do. I was able to earn extra time off assisting recruiters with another new group of Marines, and he was one of them.

    I Found My Voice

    I Found My Voice

    I’ve been crying ever since I woke up this morning and I can’t stop asking myself “Why?” I also can’t stop asking myself, “Who?” or “What?” I’ve been trying to just move along in my day, but I am finding it impossible. I am losing myself, slowly, into the depths of something I cannot understand. And nobody will explain it to me, no matter how much I plead. And now it’s come down to the moment that I have to be honest with myself. And everybody else if there’s ever going to be closure to this sad state in the world. The thing about it is, I haven’t been honest throughout this entire book. But I’m going to be honest now. Because no matter how hard I try, I just can’t see things any other way. I see it in my head, no matter how hard I try to convince myself it isn’t real. And no matter how hard others out there try to beat me down to silence. I’m going to do what they’ve been promoting me to do all along. I’m going to speak my truth and be honest, as I see it from my point of view. From the picture in my head.

    Patriarchy

    Patriarchy

    If you are an incarnated female in this time, you have experienced suppression in some form, whether you are conscious of it or not. The suppression and misuse of feminine energy and her sexual creative force were evident to me not only as a young girl but throughout my adult life.

    Newly Divorced?

    Newly Divorced?

    To the newly divorced woman, vacation and holiday season can be especially difficult. With all the focus around family, being together, love and happiness, it sometimes feels as if the world is literally celebrating around your loss. While vacation is something that we are expected to look forward to, experiencing it on your own again takes some getting used to. It can be lonely, and hard to find things to do. BUT, we can get through it. And how do I know that? Because we always do.

    My Story

    My Story

    I am Ronalda Angasan (Ronalda Rude {Olivera}). I am a survivor of a 20+ year abusive relationship. Before that, I was in other equally abusive relationships. My mother, my aunts, my grandmother—all survivors of either rape, domestic violence, or assault (in some cases—all three). As Alaska Natives we have many traditions, this is one I hope stops with my generation.

    10 Truths About Divorce—A Series

    10 Truths About Divorce—A Series

    I’ve chosen to work with women in transition. Nearly 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. Ending a marriage is one of the most difficult transitions women will face. I’ll certainly discuss having children, balancing work and family, re-entering the workforce, empty nesting, and many other life changes. This series examines the consequences I wish I had known about before I embarked upon my own divorce. Sure, friends and family offered advice along the way, did I listen? No. We tend not to listen clearly when our lives are bordering on disarray. This much is now clear: despite the hardships, I know I made the right choice in “uncoupling.” Knowledge is power and my goal is to share the realities of divorce to empower you to make confident choices.

    Divorce Protects the Institution of Marriage

    Divorce Protects the Institution of Marriage

    A friend had contacted me from across the other side of the world in the UK. She is a good Christian friend with whom I experienced some very meaningful prayer times and understanding of the Bible because of her care. This was during a time I lived in Japan which was were I had converted to Christianity in 2002. I later became Muslim in 2010. Seventeen years later she contacted me recently having been concerned about the fate of a divorced Muslim female. The concern was "There would be no chance of her being able to remarry" and that it is "the reality for most Muslim women."
