I recently heard that an acquaintance of mind got divorced for the 2nd time. The marriage had lasted a very short time, but I was not surprised.

Words do not always come out right. They don't always express the depth of our emotions or what we want to say.

My last several articles talked about the common experience for many "well spouses" of juggling simchas and crises at the same time.

We all know them - the sad sacks who seemingly were born under a bad constellation.

I have been writing a series of articles on managing simchas and crises when they occur at the same time.

In a crisis, few of us know how to act. We desperately want to help, but we are afraid of overstepping or intruding where we shouldn't.

As my friend Eve (not her real name) and I started filling our plates at a recent buffet dinner, she commented that lucky for her, her mother wasn't with us.

Last week I relayed Evelyn's story. She is a well spouse who was making a simcha.

The Hebrew word gazayra means evil decree. Sometimes, a government decree is just that - an indisputably evil order, as when Pharaoh of Biblical times commanded the murder of all Hebrew male newborns.

While randomly perusing some Jewish community newspapers this past week, I was struck by the press releases of several Jewish organizations crowing with excited pride about the significant monetary donations they made for victims of the Tsunami.

Dealing with chronic illness when planning even the most joyous of occasions is very difficult, even when there is no crisis at the moment.

For more than a year now, I have been relating stories from and about well spouses. When these stories reflected a common experience, I wrote about them.

When we first marry, we assume life will be wonderful. We rarely think about or discuss potential problems or the possibility of illness darkening our doorstep.

A good friend of mine, "Sarah," recently shared her concern over her two year old grandson's health.

Well spouses with ill partners face a dilemma. Whether the ill spouse's care is long-term hospitalization or a nursing home, the absence of a partner over a long period changes the nature of the family unit.

As we go through this journey called life, we meet many people and make many friends.

None of us would deliberately hurt our friends. We would not tell jokes about the blind to a blind person or to a relative of a blind person.

From time to time, I am asked where I get ideas for my articles. The answer is simple. Just from getting up in the morning and experiencing life.

A Get (Jewish divorce) must be given freely and received freely. A man must be able, in front of two witnesses, to indicate his willingness to divorce his wife.

My mother used to say you never know who your good friends are until you go through a crisis.
