During a divorce, parents will always fear that their children will end up feeling as if they are being left behind or less than loved by the parents who have to leave.

It doesn't have to be that way, however!


Facebook user Dylan Lenox is planning to marry Sarah, a divorcée with a beautiful daughter named Willow. United by love of the young girl, Dylan and David, Willow's biological father, became close friends.

Dylan penned a touching Facebook post on Saturday, January 19, writing about how lucky the entire family is to have two loving dads.


In his post, Dylan wrote:

"Our daughter Willow. You may never know how your love has changed us all. The guy to the left is myself (Daddy, Daddy Dylan or Bonus Dad), in the middle is of course our Princess Willow and the guy to the right is David (Daddy, Daddy David or biological Dad). No we are not a same sex couple, but we do share a daughter."
"David is Sarah's ex husband and I am the Fiancé. We have molded ourselves into one unique family, of only for the sake of our children to know the power of love."
"Not only did I gain a daughter, I gained a brother and a best friend. Thank you Sarah for letting this all happen!"

He continued:

"When we care more about our children (on both sides of the party) than the way society has taught us to be towards (ex's/baby mommas/daddy's) then walls will fall, life will be free of hatred and remorse, and our children will conquer the foolish "norms" that media has shoved in our faces."
"He stays at our home when he visits, because family is always welcome. He is not an outsider, he is and will always be apart of my life for the simple fact that we share the same daughter!"
"Of course not a single moment would be like this without Sarah (mommy) and her kind and generous heart! Willow Grace you are loved by so many people in this world and your Daddies love you!"

Dylan left readers with a final thought, just in case anyone was looking for a loving partner:

":::FYI David is SINGLE::: This Is NOT a photo shoot, Sarah is a photographer though::: This was taken before a daddy daughter dance:::David took her this year:: This was an impromptu photo op. This is real and this is us."

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
