Divorce profiteering and misleading ads

lifes short get a divorce advertisement

Yea, this is a real advertisement for legal divorce services. It says:

Life’s short. Get a divorce.

I may comment on the images in a future post. For now I’ll just say this:

Divorce shortens children’s lives. Divorced people of both sexes have elevated risks for suicide, but among men the elevation is much greater.

Given this, maybe the ad should say:

Life’s short. Make it shorter by getting a divorce.

That would be more honest.

I'm an adult child of divorce, having been raised in multiple divorce/remarriage situations. I'm writing in order to shed light on the problems of divorce from the perspective of the child. I will also discuss problems with other non-triad family structures, since there is a lot of overlap. People often think that better parenting skills will overcome problems in non-triad arrangements. While I agree that parenting skills are important, they cannot overcome the problems I discuss such as fractured ontology and perpetual liminality. I converted to the Catholic faith in 2012, and will discuss Catholic things from time to time as well.
