I read an interesting quote recently, something like:”Systems are evil; people are not…”

Essentially connoting that it is a group mentality that can produce evil; not the individuals themselves. In this regard I am moved to “consider carefully” the state of our modern day divorce system. The amount of political, legal, able law enforcement, financial and emotional pressure that goes into such a thing, is horrific on some level.

Let’s begin with the sense that couples often are in a position, perhaps it is changing, but at a basically high school level of break-up in an emotional sense. Maybe now, people are slightly more attuned; yet nothing in the world can prepare a person for the pressure once the divorce system kicks in. There are lawyers, and court officers, and police and judges, and psychologists; ALL often with the fierce force of gravity that seeks to pound a person into submission on some level. Most of us surely would condemn any and all instances of domestic violence. Yet, we cannot treat every familial break-up like that form of violence is the norm. Rather the opposite. Most people need a caring and understanding approach.
