Everyone knows that it's possible to get a divorce. But what if you don't want to get divorced from your spouse? Is it possible to refuse to get divorced? The short answer is "no." If your spouse wants to get divorced, you can certainly try to talk him or her out of it. You can take your husband or wife out to dinner and reminisce about all the positive things that have happened over the course of your marriage. But, if these tactics fail, you are probably going to become a divorcee.
All children deserve love and attention from their parents. Without this, children may struggle to thrive as children and even as adults. Yet, in the throes of divorce, it often becomes difficult for parents to give their children the attention they deserve. Parents may find they are too busy or pre-occupied with mourning the loss of the relationship or fighting the divorce in court to properly care for children.
In most discussions of divorce, spouses seem to be the only players. They bicker and battle in court, and then the matter is presumably settled. But what about the rest of the family? Each spouse may have parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members who play integral roles in their children's lives. Unfortunately, children of divorce often find themselves separated from family members of their non-custodial parent, including grandparents.
There is no denying the strength of those in America's armed forces. Those in the service risk their lives taking down terrorists, hostile regimes, and drug cartels on a regular basis.
