While you may have to work harder than those who witnessed a good marriage at home, you are not doomed to singlehood. Nothing good comes easy in life, and all couples must work hard on their marriages in order to live in harmony. You need to take the difficult step of working on your deep-rooted fear – but your efforts will, with Hashem’s help, bear fruit.
Thank you for your words of praise and encouragement. I hope that readers of The Jewish Press learn from your pain and suffering and decide that if they must get divorced, they do so amicably. And thank you for sharing deeply personal feelings in order to help others make different – and better – choices than those your parents made.. Divorcing parents should always choose to put their children before their pride.
Hatzlachah in your pursuit of happiness and in the transformation of your views on marriage!Dr. Yael Respler
