  1. Stephanie’s son is almost 11 and for most of his life he has lived between his mum and his dad’s house. Stephanie has a good relationship with her ex-husband; one of the positives that Australian Family therapists emphasise when exploring how kids will manage the separation of their parents.If this is the way family’s look in the future then the flexibility we all show in understanding what kids and adults need might offer more success for love the second time around.

  2. Most people in the West don’t give importance to, or outright ignore the fact that there should be a degree of adjustment to conform with conflicting ideas, or a minimum level of understanding, existing between couples, for a successful long-term relationship. High divorce rate is common in countries, where people are highly materialistic; don’t want to inculcate basic family values or encourage an institution that the ‘family’ as a cohesive unit establishes, and forward a message of integrity to it’s progenies; and, where, the word ‘love’ is superficially used to denote some sort of chemical explosion, that limits one’s attraction to external appearence only.
