New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 31, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeltung 31 Family bonds do not have to break after bitter divorce M M t V m 1 aJ 1 I l DEAR ABBY The letter from Minneapolis whose divorced brother did not want her to have contact with his exwife and therefore his children touched me I have been in that very same situation My husbands brother insisted that we not allow our children to spend time with his children when they were with their mother Since they lived with their mother there was little chance for contact Like a fool with much hesitation I complied with my husbands demand that we yield to Alberts request ALIR offers several new courses this semester Classes begin Jan 19 The Academy of Learning in Retirement an educational program of the Institute of Texan Cultures for senior citizens has added several new courses this fall in addition to the triedandtrue courses filled each semester Since there are no prerequisites or grades at ALIR

last time they were invited and 1 have regretted it ever since How cruel to punish my girls for a selfish selfcentered brotherinlaw The girls and their cousins loved each other They had a right as relatives to continue the bond that was established when the adults were married Tell Minneapolis Reader to do the right thing even if no one agrees Her brother should grow up live with the choices he has made in his life and not make his children suffer because of them GROWNUP IN LOUISIANA DEAR GROWNUP I have said this many times but it bears repeating Children need family ties and stability in their lives This is particularly true when divorce separates their parents Read on for an example that demonstrates my point DEAR ABBY More than 25 years ago my parents divorced Itwas the greatest tragedy my family has ever experienced Because they have never been able to put their bitterness aside we relive the pain on every holiday birthday and special occasion One of them has been absent from all of our graduations weddings childrens births because the exspouse may be present I cannot begin to describe the disappointment of my college graduation and my wedding due to the absence of one of my parents Their anger and bitterness has affected all of us children in many ways We struggle with depression poor relationship choices and low selfesteem all remnants of a childhood made difficult by divorce Divorcing couples and their fatpilies must understand that while the divorce is an end to the marriage it can be a life sentence for the children Children should never be expected to play favorites or choose sides nor should the other family members of the divorcing couple To the brother of Minneapolis Do your children and your family a favor KEEP THE PEACE No matter how acrimonious the split clinging to the bitterness and robbing your children of part of their family is not the answer Im signing my name but because I speak for many divorced please sign me DIVORCE
