divorce rate By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Writer This year 60 percent of the cases filed at the Comal County Courthouse have involved divorces custody and issues According to one local minister these social issues have a dramatic effect on our society as a whole For example for all children who live with only their mother 66 percent live in poverty as opposed to 12 percent when both parents are said Dennis Gallaher minister of Freedom Fellowship Church in New Braunfels Children raised under such conditions also suffer psychological consequences such as higher than average levels of youth suicide low intellectual and edu cation performance and higher than average rates of mental illness vio lence and drug To address these problems the Cen ter for Marriage and Family Intimacy in Austin has initiated a program directed at local churches to help establish effec tive models of marriage and family ministry They are trying to impact the divorce rate in a four county area in Central said Gallaher The three areas impacted by divorce are economic social and spiritual If we can get our community centered in to really work on this Even though we have all kinds of differences nobody is against marriages or for divorce If we really work on this can we impact our community in five years Can we impact the Central Texas area in five years Gallaher says hed like for all the churches in the community to work together to address how people can have a belter marriage and better par relationships There are all different kinds of for mats that can be Gallaher said There are classes support groups Sunday evenings at churches a lot of these have nothing to do with church es its really about how we can pos itively impact marriage and family in Central Texas Its reaching about a people in the area right No one has a perfect marriage said Gallaher but people are hesitant to ask for help because they assume everyone will think there are serious problems We dont deal with our cars that way we dont deal with our schools that way we dont deal with our homes that said Gallaher When youre having a problem in order not to have a bigger problem you have regular maintenance that goes on With mar riage the stigma is that if you go to talk to someone or for counseling or to a class then the automatic assumption is that you must be having Most couples have issues to deal with that they have difficulty commu nicating The program deals with a lot of communication issues and it deals with how to share our needs and hurt in a way that our spouses can respond to and help with during those said Gallaher We all have needs that go un met and that makes people try to go to oth er areas to get those needs met which causes all kinds of Gallaher said spouses can hurt each other more than anyone else because the intimate relationship makes the opinions of your spouse the most important in your life The Center for Marriage Family Intimacy has sent invitations to local churches inviting them to participate in the pilot program If our churches can come together as one for this effort then evangelism will flow through said Gallaher One of the major issues raised by those who dont go to church is well if you all would stop fighting amongst yourselves maybe I would Com munity wide efforts benefit all of us and if couples go to churcli together sta tistics show they have a better chance at a lasting marriage We want to try to heal marriages That will be good for our community for our churches the county and the school Gallaher challenges the churches in the community to join together as one to see what can be done to address the problems of divorce in Comal County The information used to determine that 60 percent of the cases filed in Comal County relate to divorce
