Psychotherapist Mel Schwartz in his thought provoking article, “For the Sake of Children”, stimulates a change in mindset towards divorce and separation. He urges the readers to see divorce as a positive progression that heals the wounds of a failed and abusive marriage. He bluntly states that divorce is not a failure but living in an unhappy relationship is. He also encourages parties to stop using children as an excuse to be in an unhappy marriage as children carry the burdens of their parent’s unhappy relationship everywhere they go. It is better for a child to learn the meaning of a healthy relationship than to learn to be in a negative relationship that hinders one’s growth. It is time that we see divorce as a necessary procedure that is needed to bring positive changes in one lives so one could utilize their potential and live a prosperous life.
