"Divorce," writes author psychiatrist David Reuben, "is like a shoot-out between Siamese twins - no matter what happens, both parties become casualties." With almost one out of two marriages ending in divorce, some believe that marriage has entered the growing list of "disposable" institutions in modern society. Yet experts believe in many cases divorce can be avoided. "It doesn't have to be that way," they say.
In a two-part report on "The Marriage Game," the February "Readers' Digest" examines some of the problems - and solutions - in contemporary marriage.
FOR INSTANCE, independent, single adults frequently find that marriage casts them into dependent roles they haven't encountered since childhood: Men, for instance, depending on women to wake them up, cook for them; and women asking their men for money. They also discover that old - fashioned stereotypes held by their own parents sometimes intrude upon their marriage. There are similarities in marriage and parent - child relationships, and the winning strategy is to emphasize the positive associations and eliminate the negative ones.
Couples often go into marriage thinking it will solve their problems. "On the contrary," says Dr. Reuben, "marriage simply exchanges old problems for new challenges." His advice: don't expect too much of your marriage, and learn the value of trade-offs - total personal freedom for mutual strength, financial independence for emotional security. Few marriages are perfect; in fact, few people would agree on what a "perfect" marriage is. But marriage does offer both partners a rare opportunity to develop and grow and to find love and fulfillment in each other.
DOES LOVE fly out the window when money problems come in the door? Families across the nation have a first-class chance to find out as the increasing strains of inflation add to existing problems. Wives feel incompetent: they can't manage on the same budget they had a few years ago. Men feel threatened and impotent: they can't provide for the needs of their families. Children feel deprived and neglected: some of their goodies are being denied.
You can deal with these emotional reverberations if you face them squarely. Explain to the children that money doesn't go very far these days. They can understand this fact far better than many parents realize, according to child psychologists. And don't take your worries out on each other. The economic bind isn't anyone's fault.
EL PASO HERALD-POST, Tuesday, February 24, 1976
WASHINGTON (AP) - Twice as many unmarried couples are living together now as there were seven years ago in what is a trend among young people who are looking for some housekeeping experience before marriage, the government says.
The Census Bureau reported Tuesday that there were 1.3 million persons shaving 660,000 two-person households with an unrelated adult of the opposite sex.
The report, a population profile of the United Stales as of 19TC, says almost three-quarters of the men and almost half of the women in these homes were under age 45,
"The trend is for more and more young people to set up their own households, usually alone but sometimes with roommates," said Arthur Norton, a population expert who wrote the report.
The report also says America's population has hit 216 million, but is growing at a slightly slower rate than a year ago.
The profile shows the population grew by 1.6 million, or seven-tenths of 1 per cent, from January 1976 to January 1977.
The population increased by eight-tenths of 1 per cent per cent in 1975. Part of that increase was listed as a result of the immigration of 130,000 Vietnamese refugees.
Also, the total fertility rate - the average number of children a woman bears - dropped slightly from 1.80 in 1973 to 1.16 in 1976. This marks the filth year in a row in which the total fertility rate fell to a record low. In 1970 the total fertility rate was 2.4.
