Family Law : A Hot Potato only Fathers seem prepared to handle!
Posted by Natasha in Research. We live in a world where men are, sometimes explicitly, expected to be tough and strong all of the time, and sadly women now too, are expected to be nothing short of superhuman, but the reality for both sexes has always rested somewhere in between immortal and not, and now research has confirmed what most of us knew already: humans are, well, human after all.

According to a recent article in Journal of Men’s Health,a new publication which focuses on improving the health of men around the world, divorced men have higher rates of mortality, substance abuse, depression, and lack of social support, (Tell us something new! Davey)all related to psychological and behavioral disorders which can be brought on in men as a result of divorce.

Previous research also highlights the fact that men find it harder to adjust after divorce, although typically they are often better off financially, but it will be interesting to see if that turns on its head in the next twenty years or so, as more and more women take on the role of joint or main breadwinner.

It’s a tough old world out there, but we can have our superheroes and heroines: after all, we need them so; we just need to let their skin breathe under the latex from time to time.

    i remember that corny episode of Batman...what a gem of a series it was full of character, style, imagination, power, heroism and laughs. It was a young boy's delight! What's on the tube these days with similar class that even comes close for our young ones?
