SAME DAY HOOKUP WITH ADVANCE NOTICE! the early stages of our marital problems if only my husband had accepted counselling. He said we got ourselves into the mess and we would have to work our way out of it." Two sessions Mrs. Bierderman says her husband attended two counsel- ling sessions but refused to con- tinue on a regular basis. "We couldn't do it without a third party because he would just clam up and refuse to com- municate with me or the chil- dren." She filed for divorce in Sep- tember, 1972, on grounds of mental cruelty after separating from her husband six months earlier. "Even though I knew it had to be done, leaving him was the hardest thing I have ever had to she said. Mrs. Bierderman was hospi- talized for a short rest to ease her nerves following the sep- aration. She draws an analogy be- tween marital break-up and the up-rooting of a tree. Sometimes the tree survives and grows stronger roots than before, or it may partially root again just enough to survive. On the other hand, it may just curl up and die. Uprooted "Who she said. "My tree was uprooted and I'll just have to make the best of it." Immediately following the separation her husband gave her to support the family for a few months. Since then she hasn't received a cent from him, sjhe says. She is now supporting her two teenagers still at home on her salary and is only requesting per child from her husband by way of alimony maintenance payments. She isnt asking for anything for herself. Her lawyer told her that one- third of the property, which in- cluded a farm and house, is lawfully hers. If she wants a half share, she will have to sue. The property settlement has slowed divorce procedures be- cause her husband has failed to appear or be represented at sev- eral court sessions. She said she is getting im- patient with the dragged-out legal proceedings because her husbaod isn't contesting the di- vorce. While the lawyers clip the red tape she has to support the children herself. So far, she has paid lawyer fees and costs of and the case appears far from over. Her husband will have to pay court costs and his lawyer's fees. Family agency Mrs. Bierderman suggests a family counselling agency should be established to handle tJTe legalities and provide coun- selling for a couple and their children before and after di- vorce. Under a counselling agency, she feels divorce action would be more discreet, faster and less costly. One unhappy relationship hasn't made her bitter toward marriage but she says she will be a lot more cautious the sec- ond time around.
