The Ugliness of Divorce

A very good friend of mine is in the process of getting a divorce. What started last April when her husband blindsided her is still in process and is getting nastier by the day. It tears me up to see my friend so sad and demoralized by what is happening to her and her children in this process.

How can two people who once really loved each other enough to take vows "until death due us part" end up with so little civility in the divorce process? My friend and her husband have three young children who have become the battleground of this divorce. People get divorced every day. However, most people make the emotional welfare of their children their first priority. Not so in this case. It is so sad.
