    Thank you for sharing your story. The rise of divorce is indeed the cause of the breakdown of the family across society.

    Have you read Christopher West’s “Theology of the Body”? Definitely pick it up. It summarizes Pope JPII’s description of marriage as the basis of humanity.

    Another great post!

    • I haven’t read it, but I’ll see what I can do to find it. It certainly sounds like something I’d be interested in. Glad you enjoyed the post. Thanks for reading!

    Thanks for sharing! My best friend is going through a divorce right now. Her husband cheated on her. She was willing to work through it, but he wanted to quit and start something new with someone else. Makes me so sad for her as I see the damage to her family.

  3. My husband’s first wife abandoned him and their 2 year old daughter several years before I met him. The lasting damage it did to him and especially to her were devastating. I spent the first few years of marriage feeling like I was doing emotional triage with them, trying to heal the wounds left.
    I hate the attitude I saw as a teacher, when parents decided that their needs overshadowed their vows, their children’s well-being, everything. They would tear their family to pieces for an old flame or a new love interest, and then wonder why their child was suddenly failing, starting fights or skipping class.
