The Right to Remarry

A woman came for counselling upset because her adult children from her first marriage would not accept her fiance. Whenever they saw him, they were rude and were constantly complaining that she had no right to get married again.

Upon questioning her, she confirmed my suspicions that she had feelings of guilt over the divorce, even though it had occurred some eight years ago. She was fearful that perhaps her kids were right and that she had no right to remarry and replace their father as the main person her life.

During our single session, I helped her understand that she had every right to remarry and that she should not be intimidated by her children. I explained that they would soon be moving out of the home and getting on with their lives and that if she had found a loving partner, then she should marry him if that was her desire.

At a later time, one of her children came for an appointment for her own personal problem. She reported her mother has been insistent about her fiance and is not giving her, nor her siblings, a choice in the matter with regards to her intentions to marry him. Thus, she and her siblings were beginning to accept their mother’s future husband and actually even starting to like him.

Delegating responsibility and valuing diversity is a great asset to marital peace and harmony. Now, they are both very happy and the arguing a distant memory.

Respecting Each Other’s Authority

Bob and Jill came to me for marriage counselling in my Thornhill office. Jill was frustrated because Bob was constantly critical and insisting that his way was always the right way.

Jill stayed home with the kids and took care of the domestic responsibilities. She wanted Bob to support her in these activities and not criticize. Bob was upset because he worked long and hard hours out of the home in his own private business. He felt he should have a right to be active and involved when at home.

The shouting had gotten out of control, and even the neighbors were now overhearing their disagreements. Jill was embarrassed and thinking of leaving.

I explained to Bob how important it was to support Jill in her profession as Chief Executive Officer of their home. I asked him how he would feel if Jill went to his office and complained and criticized how he ran his business. He understood that just like he wants support from his wife for his responsibilities, she too wants his support. I also explained to Jill that although she is the CEO at home since Bill wants to be involved, both could benefit from her delegating work to Bill. Of course, she would need to respect that Bill will do things differently from her.
