Mary and I were talking about someone we know who is having marital problems. Her husband befriended someone online and a short time later asked for a divorce. Some people are saying the website where her husband met this person is at fault. But I wonder.
I wonder whether this situation could have unfolded as it did if the husband did not already have a reason to want to leave the marriage.
I wonder whether the husband would have just found someone else some other way if the website didnâ€™t exist.
I wonder if there is a correlation between the divorce rate and the fact that no one can be taken on his/her word anymore.
After all, doesnâ€™t divorce come down to people going back on their word? Their word to love and cherish through sickness and health, through rich and poor, through better and worse? Their word to stay married for the rest of their lives?
