The Divorce Dividend: When Children of Divorce Marry

I am the only child of parents who divorced when I was 9 and they never reconciled. My father remarried. My mother is still single. I have been married for the past 19 years. I have been determined from the beginning to make it work. Many of my aunts and uncles are divorced and remarried. However, I do not believe that statistics are always a strong indicator of outcomes. Many couples do not utilize counseling. Many times, one partner will seek help while the other will not. Even when two people are invested, sometimes it just doesn't work. I work at my marriage every day. I don't look to the past to predict my future. I wish that more couples would seek counseling. Also, hate is a very strong word. I try to live, love, and move forward. Hate can consume a person and cause great internal damage.
