Simon Cowell’s complicated family life is similar to many second time relationships however couples can help their situation via Collaborative Marriage Planning.
Congratulations to Simon Cowell for becoming a daddy. He’s been posting lots of great photos on his Twitter account showing him enjoying some father / son bonding, however all is not perfect for this new dad.
The Daily Mail reported recently on The bitter divorce that threatens to keep Cowell apart from baby Eric and how his complicated personal life could threaten his time with his own son:
“For the arrival of the Cowell baby brings with it seemingly unconquerable practical challenges. What stands in the way of family life, aside from Cowell’s formidable work schedule, is a divorce and custody agreement over Lauren’s older son which has been privately described to me as ‘impossible’ .
Indeed, I can reveal that Cowell’s lawyers are quietly negotiating to attempt to overturn the agreement now, because they fear that it will prevent him and Lauren from building a family life.”
Cowell’s situation sounds especially fraught due to his girlfriend’s bitter divorce from her ex-husband. However even without this, when families breakdown and couples then remarry and set up new families, it can often be difficult to keep this larger group of connected relationships all on a positive footing. Emotions can run especially high when there are children involved.
Often couples come together quite unaware of how these complex personal relationships will be managed. The result can be conflict, misunderstandings and resentment and if not dealt with, this can be the very thing that can end up threatening the new relationship.
We have introduced a new family law service ‘Collaborative Marriage Planning‘ which can help couples consider their partnership together in a holistic way. It can help couples discuss those difficult questions such as those involving step children, or extended family. By giving both parties the chance to explore important issues, family dynamics and expectations can be explored fully and discussed beforehand, and a way forward agreed upon. Find out more about how this new service can help you by going to our Collaborative Marriage Planning page.
