If divorce occurs there, there are many ramifications. Children become confused and are often forced to take allegiance with one parent or the other. There can be major custody consequences. Many courts are biased towards the mother, and she may  almost automatically gain custody of the children.

The father is usually required to pay alimony and child support. These are often very high expenses and costs him much financial grief,  and may even prevent him from marrying again.

And there are the problems for the division of property. Some states have common law property rights in the properties, no matter who originally on them, are divided in half. Pre-marital agreements may be negated.

Both husband and wife, because of stress, can become abusive to each other and to the children.

Couple should seek to find a effective solution to their problems. They probably will need to seek advice from marriage counselors. A good marriage counselor can teach couples how to resolve problems between themselves.

You should review the credentials and qualifications of lyour marriage counselor. You should ask for references. Then you will be assured that the counselor, who will be handing problems, is professional and will help you solve the problems facing your marriage.

You can use a counselor such as clergy for free marriage advice. Some say that unmarried clergy should not give advice on marriage. However, many unmarried clergy have been trained to give marriage advice.

If you want to solve your own problems, you can use books or online sources such as

Free online marriage counseling removes the need for hiring a paid therapist.

The important thing is self involvement. You should have faith and be patience to learn how to have a happy married life.

How to Show Love to Your Spouse

You remember he movie, don’t you? William Holden and Jennifer Jones? Love is a many splendored thing is one definition of love, but not too descriptive:

When I was a college student after I got back from the Korean War, I took the course in courtship and marriage. There I was told that there are three kinds of love:

Platonic love: we are friends and like to be together.

Physical love: we are physically entwined.

Spiritual love: this might occur during childbirth.

The song is talking about romantic love which is a combination of the three. That is why it is many splendored.

Now When I Was in the Army

In 1950, to combat infantryman returned from Korea. One was a young man who had worked at Gen. MacArthur’s headquarters where he had to gun down Japanese who tried to kill MacArthur. He is a Thompson submachine gun. Then he was shipped to Korea where he was wounded a number of times. In the shower I could see that there was not one part of his body that did not either have a bullet hole or a shrapnel. He was immediately given leave and when he came back he was married. I think he had decided that life is too short not to move on.

The other man, a truck driver, who was serving in the unit that I joined a few wants later in Korea, had gotten lost when the Chinese came running over the border from Manchuria. He joined up with a platoon of Turkish soldiers. He was sure that the Lieutenant over the platoon would soon retreat but instead he called, “Fix bayonets!” He jumped in his truck and got out of there as the Turks charged down on the Chinese causing them to turn heads and nails back towards Manchuria.

The second man was a corporal and he was 42 years old. I was 19 years old, but because I had the stripes, a he asked for my advice because he was having trouble with his wife. She was ornery, cranky and mean to the children and especially to him. I listened for a while and I said, “It’s all your fault.”

I told him that he had alienated his wife and that he had to make up to her. I told him to jump in and start doing family chores, washing the dishes, scrubbing the floors, helping with the washing and drying ironing of clothing, etc. I told him he would have to start dating her again, first by sending her flowers and by taking care out to dinner and a movie.

Couple of weeks later, he came to me and thanked me and told me that everything was wonderful with his wife, that she was a very sweet and loving and was kind to his children.

I was no marriage counselor. I was just a kid with stripes. But I was raised in a home where my parents were shipped each other. I never heard them say one unkind word to each other. There were kind to each other and they were kind to us children. So whatever I said was from me being raised in a loving home.

Here are some tips from a young married couple. I think you will like this:

If you continually love your spouse, through thick and thin, you will gain a great reward. Try it! You will see.
