Q & A

Do you think divorce can be contagious or something that is hereditary?  My parents got divorced and both of my brothers are divorced.  One of my brothers is on his 2nd marriage and my other brother got divorced after almost 25 years (this was a shocker).  My marriage is good but all this divorce makes me nervous about the future.  My husband’s mother never married his father and she too is on her second marriage.

    • estaticestatic no, I think it has to do with the two people that are in the marriage and both willing to continuely work and be commited to the marriage.
      My parents never divorced, my grandparents either but Im on my second marriage my husbands now first and we have been together 18 almost 19 yrs.
      I think if you know your marriage is good focus on that and the two of you. Sorry to hear about brother divorcing after 25 yrs.

    • Sorry about all the divorces in the family but I donot think it is contagious at all.  Marriages involve two people and sometimes the mix is just not a good mix and on the other hand it takes some work to keep it going.  For whatever reason it did not work for them does not say yours will not work.  Keep on working at yours, as you as an individual, keep focus on both of you.  Blessings on your life.

    • It’s the happiest time of the year... or suppose to be, so why think about divorce now? The rate of divorce in families is based on learned values of marriage, but anyone can break the family cycle if they choose to. It’s not contagious or hereditary. And happy marriage is built on trust of ones self and letting yourself be madly in love. And that’s just my view of it.

    • I don’t think it’s contagious or hereditary. However I do think we learn about relationships and how they work from our parents or the people we are closest to.
      I know for me I had to look at my parents communication style and create a different style for me.

    • heart but you found him mz v and that is what matters. And I agree with Cathie. dont mistake the actions of others as truth to your situation. People drift or grow apart when they forget to put effort into the marriage. Just because you have said vows been together for years doesnt mean the relationship doesnt need love and care. sometimes with all of our busy lifes we put our marriage on the back burner thinking its ok because the other knows how I feel and will understand but if we arent careful we forget to make it a priority and things slip away sometimes its to late when a person notices.
      So, take all the worry u have and put into your hubby. Its effort youll benifit from.
      Lol hugs
