This might be worth a closer look: Instafam

The name tags are laid out for the parent-teacher meet-and-greet. My name isn’t there. I Sharpie “Sarah Humphreys” on a blank one, but that doesn’t clarify much, because I am actually the fiance of the dad of a new student going into kindergarten. Which is as hard to jam into conversation as it is to fit on a tag.

This looks unusual: 20 Lessons About Divorce I Wish I Could’ve Told the Younger Me

I met the woman of my dreams while living in Hawaii and was married for 15 years. Things were great for most of it. We decided to split in August, 2011. She moved out two months later.

Fascinating: 11 Pieces Of Relationship ‘Advice’ You’re Probably Sick Of Hearing

We all know someone who constantly offers unwanted commentary on our relationships: Still single? “You need to get yourself out there!” Happily coupled up? “It’s been a while, are you guys thinking marriage yet?” Newly single after a split? “Don’t worry, I’m sure you won’t stay single for long!”

They may be well meaning, but their advice is less than constructive — especially if they’re just dishing out relationship cliches we’ve all heard.
