My own divorced parents' four children all reached either death or retirement happily married to one partner. I cannot answer for my siblings, but I know that the spectacle of my parents' miserable disloyalty to each other made me determined to make a better job of the business of marriage. Far from accepting, as Barbara Kew does, that divorce will increase with each generation, I feel that a successful marriage may be the only decent thing left to which our children and grandchildren can aspire. Everything else, today, is too easy.
