Here is a link to a very good article at Christianity Today titled What I Wish I’d Known Before I Got Divorced. More of my clients and/or their spouses need to know this before they decide to go through with the divorce.

The Art of Listening

Written by

My friend and fellow divorce lawyer, Ben Stevens of the South Carolina Family Law Blog, pointed this article out to me. It is an article titled On Listening and Other Rare, Exotic Habits by Hans and Donna Finzel.

A quote from the article – “In this age of telecommunications and voice messaging, there is still no substitute for quiet, prolonged exposure of one soul to another. With all the marvels of the Internet and a reach-out-and-touch-someone technology, husband and wife are more in need of quiet and prolonged communication than ever before. The more busy and crazy our lives become, the more communication protects the marriage.”

If more husbands and wives communicated better and more deeply, I’d have a lot less work.

Healthy Marriage Initiative

Written by

I recently came across the website for The Healthy Marriage Initiative. The site states that their mission statement is
To help couples, who have chosen marriage for themselves, gain greater access to marriage education services, on a voluntary basis, where they can acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to form and sustain a healthy marriage.

Click here if you’d like to view their site and see if they have any resources that you or someone you know may be able to use.
