Why does dinner at your house resemble feeding time at the zoo? Why is it so difficult to get your kids and husband to all sit down at the same time and share a peaceful meal?
I’ve been thinking about why so many marriages end in acrimonious divorce. People who once declared they would love each other forever end up fighting over who gets the towels and linens, or something equally insignificant. It doesn’t have to be that way, if we could do a better job of honoring the transition of divorce. Here are some patterns I’ve noticed with couples who don’t manage the transition gracefully.
The National Enquirer reports that Kate Gosselin drinks after dinner (big deal), smacks her kids, and has cheated with her bodyguard. And Jon? Absent.
A recent study came out in the UK suggesting that children actually make couples less happy. How is this possible? We were always told that having kids can solve all problems and is the best thing to do if a relationship is starting to waver. Thank goodness someone finally put that theory to a test.
