Try something new…together: take an art class, learn to woodwork, join a team sports league or take a cooking class.
Take a staycation: hop online for great same-day hotel deals and pack your overnight bag for a luxurious hotel stay with room service, spa treatments, gym time or whatever hotel amenity will leave you both happy and refreshed the next day.
Say something positive to your partner, about your partner, every day for a month: while this may seem like an easy task, try it, and you will be amazed by the results.
Schedule a lunch date: because dinner dates often require babysitters and include exhausted parents after a long day at work, simply schedule a lunch date instead to meet up for a quick bite and meaningful chat.
Switch roles for a weekend: whatever your usual routine is, switch it up and take over your partner’s usual routine and responsibilities to get a better understanding and, hopefully, appreciation for what makes your life work.
Play a board game: bring out your teamwork and competitive nature in a card game, board game or puzzle where conversation should flow easily and you can engage on more than one level.

It was quick and easy and those are two words I did not think I would say about my divorce. We are still friendly too. We just were not meant to be together anymore. Ward Family Law made sure to draft the documents with the terms that we agreed on which kept us on good terms and there was no fighting. I cannot recommend them enough if you are looking for a clean, honest, quick, easy divorce.
We were set to get married in a little over a month and my family insisted on a premarital agreement. On my very first call Jennifer explained the entire process and timing. They hit the ground running and got everything completed and signed well before our wedding date. That made everything much less stressful so I thank them so much for their professionalism and timeliness.
Our plan was to get married after the baby was born and then a year later we still were not married and we were going our separate ways. I had no idea that the birth certificate alone did not make me the legal parent of our baby in Illinois. Luckily, Ward Family Law handles these cases and established paternity through a DNA test and submitted the results to the court. We now have an agreement on time with our kids and support too.
