I think divorce should be an option that is used after every other avenue is explored unless abuse or addiction is involved.

I think it's better to get divorced than to remain in a horrible marriage. Seeing parents separate amicably is better than watching them fight all the time.

Can divorced parents actually co parent better than married parents?

Joanie, what impact do you think technology has had on relationships? Like, since we seem to be living in this consumerist, disposability-driven culture (and the exponentially growing world of technology has played a major role in advancing that way of thinking), do you think people are beginning to think of relationships as "disposable"? As far as I can tell, the divorce rate is down, but so is the marriage rate...

I grew up with divorce being a constant in my life. My mom married 6 times and divorced
6 times. I have sworn to keep our marriage intact. Whether that means therapy if times get rough or sitting down once a month to discuss what is bothering each of us, if anything. My question is, do you think children of divorced parents are more likely to stay in a marriage?

What I want to know is, when going through a divorce, is it a good idea to do family counseling with the kids to help them prepare and adjust?
