Splintered Families


There is evidence of splintered families all around us and among us. A cartoon strip showed a young woman talking to a minister. She said, “John and I are having a terrible time, and we need your advice. We are trying to decide how to divide the furniture, who gets what of the money we’ve saved and who gets custody of the children.”


“Oh,” the minister asked, “are you contemplating divorce?”

“Oh, no,” she replied. “We are trying to work out our prenuptial agreement.”
