The video report of NBC’s John Yang states the statistics but spins the trend in a shallow way. Okay, increased freedom and independence may be part of divorce adjustment. Starting to do things you’ve always wanted to do sounds like a positive adjustment. But it doesn’t sound to me like people are learning much by simply “getting used to going solo at middle age.” I have some questions.
How can a couple learn to do more of what they want to do by helping each other?
Doesn’t learning how to build a relationship of intimacy sound more like growing into adulthood?
Where does personal growth fit into the picture? I don’t believe “it is what it is” any more than “I am what I am.” too static for me. Seems to me that a healthy marriage is one that stimulates personal growth for each person!
If “knowing God” is our ultimate goal in life (and I think it should be), then shouldn’t we devote ourselves to any and every means of complying with His design?
Do you have some questions? Let’s hear them.
