Love for the your Husband/Wife avoids divorce

The divorced couples I know usually have one of them completely centered on THEIR OWN life. Marriage is NOT work as she says. Sometimes rough spots occur but NOT work if you love the other one. I did 61 years and loved her every day. She was a gem.. Her virtue was unselfishness. G-d blessed me.

If you can manage this, remarry.

Darn, it...remarry! If you can manage this, remarry. Make their lives complete and remarry.

differences in divorce

Divorces differ. Some couples may just not get along and realize that divorce is the best course and after some legal wrangling work out something reasonably fair. Another group involved infidelity. If a husband leaves his 50 year old wife for his 25 year old secretary, working things out may be harder. Another group involves one spouse who still loves the other and particularly with men, that may manifest as anger, or court filings.

Advisers sometimes do not help. Lawyers are prized for being tough and nasty, yet understanding to their clients. Thus there becomes a ready market for telling clients what they want to hear. Psychologists may tell their female clients the husbands are borderline abusive or husbands that their wives are narcissistic and both can be told they are enablers.

Ultimately the entire group needs to try to get along and create a new life, and have emotional intelligence with their spouse though there can be barriers to doing so. A commitment to putting children first and realizing that having two parents is good is the first step.
