THE DOCTOR'S FAQS ARCHIVES
Best for the Baby
Dr. Berman- My husband and I have been together for 4 years. Married 2. We tried to get pregnant immediately after we got married and it didn't work. We ended up getting fertility treatments that cut into our saving a lot, but we finally got pregnant and I am due in the middle of May.
Child Support...
Dr. Berman- I am 35 years old, never married, no kids. The man I started seeing has never been married but does have 2 daughters that he supports. He is amazing in every way to me and to his girls. Recently, his ex has been on his case that she needs more money for the girls because she sees how he and I spend our time. I am lucky enough to have a small trust and a really great job. I pay for a large majority of the more elaborate things that we do.
Prenup
Dr. Berman, I got involved with a man who had just left his wife a few weeks before we met. Their divorce is no where near final, in fact they are still securing lawyers. 3 months in, and he keeps talking about what a great life we will have together once everything is final. I believe that too, but he keeps referencing about how we can do all of these elaborate things. While I know he makes decent money, I also know that they have been together for over 20 years with no prenup and with 2 kids.
"When you know, you know"... Right?
Dr Berman, I met a man that I am convinced I am going to marry. We have only been together 4 months. He says that he feels the same as I do. We are both in our late 30s and want children. It's like we were made for each other. We have told our friends and family and they think that we should slow down.
Making your kids earn money
Dr Berman- When I was growing up we got 5 dollars a week allowance and we were happy about that. The kids these days are getting more and more and doing less and less. Now that my daughter is 13, I understand that she wants money to shop and that all her friends have carte blanche to their parents credit cards but I still want her to know what it is like to earn money.
Being clear on how you feel...
Dr. Berman - I have been married for 18 years. My kids are 16 and 14. I love my family with all my heart, but it feels like my wife and I are just roommates. There is very little intimacy and that was always the case, and I accepted it, but now that the kids are growing up and the co-parenting is getting easier, I would like some kind of affection or touch from her. I feel like I am just a paycheck. She plans all of our stuff and manages the house, but I don't feel appreciated. I love her, but we don't connect like we used to.
Will he ever get serious with me?
Dr. Berman, I have been seeing a man pretty regularly for about 3 months. We go out at least once a week. We both have busy schedules and he has his kids on weekends, so we have never spent the night together. If anything happens one of us always goes home afterwards to bed. I am falling for this man, and I want to make it official between us, but he never talks about that with me. We are in our 40's and at this point, I want a real relationship.
Dating Older
Dr. Berman, I am in my mid 30s but since I was a young girl, I have always found myself attracted to older men. This wasn't that big of an issue as they were still young enough to not have much baggage. Now that I am older, meeting older men often means they come with an ex wife and possibly children. I have never been married, no kids. I realize that in many cases love conquers all, but I have had some relationships that were just really complicated and ended up always getting my heart broken.
Should I leave?
Dr. Berman - My fiancé and I have been together for 3 years and we live together, but for the last 6-8 months I haven't exactly been happy. He's very old fashioned and believes the man should work while the woman stays home and keeps house. I also have a degenerative disease so I'm no longer able to work and since he's the sole provider he feels that I shouldn't go anywhere or do anything without him.
Fear of Missing Out
Dr. Berman, I am 35 and a mother of 2 great kids aged 10 and 12. I had them on the younger side with my college sweetheart. He was only the 3rd guy I dated. I love my family and would do anything for them, but I am so bored with my life. Some of my girlfriends are still single and they tell me how lucky I am to have a great husband and I get that, but then they go to Africa or sky diving or out on great dates and weekends away with new lovers.
