But if there is no abuse taking place in your marriage and the two of you have simply “grown apart”,or fell out of love, I urge you to seek out help for your marriage before you give up completely.For your children’s sake, even if you’re feeling hopeless right now, get help for your marriage today.Single mom Kate Gosselin is, evidently, ready to date again. The reality TV star's divorce from her former hubby, Jon, was finalized last year, and after about a year of trying to sort things out and come to some sense of normalcy post-divorce, most of us are ready to get back into the mating game.By the time we hit age 36, as Kate did late last month, we're pretty hip to what dating's about -- unless somewhere along the line we procreated.
True, Kate has eight kids, and to steal a title from an Allison Pearson novel, I don't know how she does it.
(Dawson, “Family Structure and Children’s Health and Well-being” Journal of Marriage and the Family) – Most victims of child molestation come from single-parent households or are the children of drug ring members.
(Los Angles Times 16 September 1985 The Garbage Generation) – A Child in a female-headed home is 10 times more likely to be beaten or murdered.
There is, of course an exception to every rule, and in this case it is households where abuse is taking place.
Children should under no circumstances remain in an abusive atmosphere that is unsafe for them.
