IS OUR RELATIONSHIP MATURE, AUTHENTIC AND LONG-LASTING? Ask yourself the following types of questions: Do I feel good after we are together or do I suffer from lower self-esteem? Do I like him just the way he is or do I think he needs improving? Does he like me just the way I am or does he try to improve me? Does he have a few problems that will change after we are married? Are we content to be together doing ordinary everyday tasks or are we always having to go out to an event to be happy? Does he enjoy being just with me or does he often see previous friends without me? Do we have similar interests or are we complete -- opposites? Am I playing the “Ideal Romantic Image” or am I being my true authentic self? Only you and you alone can answer these questions. Copyright © by Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

1. Death is final. No matter how hard the widowed may grieve, the funeral service is a rite of passage that begins the process of psychologically ending the life that was. When children are involved, divorce is never final since the divorced pair need to cooperate in many ways, such as visiting times, birthday and holiday gifts and routines, school and other everyday problems. 2.Lack of “rites of passage” for divorce. We have many ways to mark our transitions in life, such as engagement, marriage, and parenthood. We do not have specific cultural ways for the recognition of the newly-divorced person or the person’s reintegration back into society. 3.Children complicate the problem still further. Except in cases of parental abuse, children still hope their biological parents will reunite and everybody can “live happily ever after." They may sabotage parental efforts to create a new life and often resent anyone new in their parents’ lives, particularly with their mothers. 4.Interference from friendly relatives. Relatives of both parties may try to get information out of the children as to possible new partners, how they are living and money being spent, and they may even make negative comments in front of the children, adding more ingredients in the mix of problems involved in any divorce.
