Divorce, Family

Divorce Effects Mothers and Daughters

“Though parental divorce itself did have a direct effect on young women’s chances of divorce, the major effect of divorce on young women was the mother-dau­ghter relationsh­ip in adolescence.”

“So the finding is that divorce has a greater effect on girls than boys. In America women initiate divorce 70% of the time with the expectatio­n of receiving full custody of their children and child support (Brinig/Al­len, 2000). They divorce for largely mundane reasons such as growing apart, unhappines­s, not feeling loved (Amato, 2003; Braver, 2998; Hetheringt­on, 2002). This study doesn’t say but I wonder if girls don’t like their mother’s role model and this puts a strain on their relationship?”

I love YOU children BUT NOT your other life giver. How does that work, really?

Imagine a person who stated they loved you but were unhappy, unloving, with your children, what would you think of that person? Most I know state it like this, if you love me, you will also love my children..­.and we think children will view things differentl­y (I love you but not your other parent).

Considerin­g the following “In America women initiate divorce 70% of the time with the expectatio­­n of receiving full custody of their children and child support (Brinig/Al­­len, 2000). They divorce for largely mundane reasons such as growing apart, unhappines­­s, not feeling loved (Amato, 2003; Braver, 2998; Hetheringt­­on, 2002). ”

No small wonder Wisdom states…

Tell older women to live their lives in a way that shows they are dedicated to God. Tell them not to be gossips or addicted to alcohol, but to be examples of virtue. In this way they will teach young women to show love to their husbands and children, to use good judgment, and to be morally pure. Also, tell them to teach young women to be homemakers­, to be kind, and to place themselves under their husbands’ authority. Then no one can speak evil of God’s word. Tit 2:3 -5

Not women alone, but men and women must be taught, women to love (actions not based on feelings alone) and men to understand (sensitive to feelings while they act soundly).

About SoundEndurance

I am a follower of The Way, holding to the doctrine of Jesus Christ the first born from among the dead, who lives and reigns forever more. Scripture is the basis of my beliefs which testify of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and confirmed in me by His Holy Spirit. The gift of eternal life is inclusive. Jesus shed his blood for all, He has purchased for each of us a resurrection from the dead unto judgment. His shed blood is our justice which satisfies our holy Creator blotting out our sins, making it possible for us to approach a holy, righteous God. In our approach to Him, we repent of our sin, we yield ourselves to His will, wanting to take on His very divine nature, desiring to be made new in His image and likeness thereby doing away with sin. It is through this faith in Him that we become children of God having received His Holy Spirit which does his commandments thereby entering eternal life and escaping the damnation of hell, the lake of fire to come. May we be blessed in the knowledge of Him. Kenneth S. Muratore Jr
