WHEN MY PARENTS celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, I pulled my mom aside at the party that my eight siblings and I held for her and my dad at our childhood Catholic church. "Wow, Ma, 50 years !" I said, thinking of the country's high divorce rate. "How in the world did you guys make it to 50 years ?" My mom was not a philosopher type who slowly unpeeled an issue to its core truth. She was more of an everyday sage who swiftly got to the heart of something that might take others an hour to figure out. "Well, you know," she said, pausing for emphasis, " we never divorced . " I cracked up. My mother was at the beginning of the Alzheimer's hell that would take her life a few years later.

Most Dodgers fans, even those rare but hearty Angelenos who manage to sit through an entire nine innings, probably never imagined they'd have to endure another split as painful as the team's 1950s breakup with Brooklyn. But that's exactly what's happening now in L.A., where the legendary team's owners are in the midst of a divorce as ugly as Jonathan Broxton's ERA against the Phillies. The bitter split between Frank and Jamie McCourt is a big reason why the 2010 Dodgers have disappointed.

IDON'T support the ban on divorce that Sen. Fumo made even in jest because I'm the product of parents who stayed together for the kids. I don't see the correlation between forcing children to grow up in loveless, disrespectful, sometimes violent homes and how that will keep them out of poverty. Adults do need to take responsibility for their actions, and I understand the point of trying to create a stable family, but I still don't agree. I left home at 18 because I couldn't stand my parents' self-absorption with their marital issues and all the fighting.

Eddie Fisher was the first Philly teen idol, a little kid with a big tenor voice who got the first of the mega-buck celebrity endorsements - a million-dollar contract pushing Coca-Cola. But this son of hardscrabble South Philadelphia is best remembered for the actresses, showgirls and socialites who beat a path to his dressing room door, and for his three celebrity wives: Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor and Connie Stevens. LAS VEGAS - Eddie Fisher, Philadelphia's prince of song, spent 12 minutes in divorcing ex-wife Debbie Reynolds.

Gwen Florio is a former Inquirer staff writer who lives in Missoula, Mont. Breaking up just got a whole lot harder on your wallet to do. You already know who's to blame. The same guy who ruined things for golfers. Used to be a million-dollar purse was what separated the major golf tournaments from, say, the Philadelphia Open. Then along came Tiger, creating his own weather as it were, payouts growing as his fame grew, his fame growing as his salary grew, all of it adding up to $100 million-plus annually for him and leaving everybody else in the rough.

WE AMERICANS aren't very good at being hard on ourselves. A glance at the cover of popular (mostly women's) magazines would lead you to believe that the average person is wracked with guilt about (1) sub-par job performance, (2) less-than-stellar parenting skills, (3) inadequacy in intimate relationships and (4) poor body image. The casual observer would be forced to conclude that we hardy descendants of immigrant stock are dissatisfied with failure and willing to make sacrifices in the name of an honorable (but ambiguous)

I SUPPORT Sen. Fumo's legislation to ban divorce. I understand his motivation for introducing the bill, but now that he's brought it up, the state should look deeper into the impact of divorce, especially on families with children. Children of divorced parents and unwed mothers are far more likely to grow up in poverty, especially in minority communities. Making it more difficult for parents to divorce would not only strengthen the institution of marriage (gay or straight), but also help improve the standard of living for thousands of children.

IT WAS PAINFUL, but it was time for a divorce. We had been together for decades, blissfully happy, devoted, sharing and caring. She supported me through dark periods, reduced my stress, helped me celebrate unlikely victories and commiserate after painful failures. She was always with me. Just before midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 9, I had my last cigarette. I divorced nicotine from my life. Well, not nicotine , as I am still on the patch. I will not vape nor suck on plastic cigarettes or straws because I've got to break the oral link.

One last in-your-face move from Britain's Princess Diana. She announced yesterday that she'd divorce Prince Charles - before the royal family, apparently, got wind of her decision. Diana's spokeswoman issued a brief statement last night: "The Princess of Wales has agreed to Prince Charles' request for a divorce. "The Princess will continue to be involved in all decisions relating to the children and will remain at Kensington Palace with offices in St. James's Palace. "The Princess of Wales will retain the title and be known as Diana, Princess of Wales.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 10 years. Four years ago, while waiting for our divorce to be finalized, I decided I'd start dating online and suggested she do the same. We were still friends, so I didn't think it was crossing any boundaries. My online dating efforts were met with peculiar results. All of the six women I connected with either stood me up or made excuses why they couldn't or wouldn't meet me in person. Out of frustration I began dating my wife again and we canceled the divorce proceedings.

An Orthodox rabbi from Lakewood, N.J., has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for orchestrating a conspiracy to extort religious divorces from unwilling husbands using beatings, stun guns, and an electric cattle prod. Rabbi Mendel Epstein, 70, appeared Tuesday for sentencing before U.S. District Judge Freda Wolfson in Trenton. In April, Epstein, dubbed "the Prodfather" by some in the media, was convicted by a jury of conspiracy related to the kidnappings and assaults on recalcitrant husbands.

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: After almost two years of counseling, my husband and I decided this year we'd be happier apart. We've been married 22 years and have two adult girls. We are all in a good place. He and I will always be family, and we function well as parents and friends. For the last 15 years or so, I've been one of those people who sends out the Dreaded Christmas Letter. Only mine isn't dreaded. People look forward to it. Yes, really.

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: My wife of 20-plus years says that she isn't getting emotional satisfaction from our relationship any longer and that I have to do something about this. This has come as a great surprise to me, but I'm willing to admit that, although I love her deeply, our routine may be just that, routine. But will just changing our routine get her to emotional satisfaction? Without a clearer understanding of it, I'm not sure what I am supposed to do. And I'll do anything.

Question: I am happily married to a wonderful man. Recently, his grown son moved in with us, and I'm fine with that. However, his son uses the word retard quite often, and it bothers me - especially when he uses it with his children, 10 and 4, as in, "Don't be a retard. " My husband said I'm being "politically correct" - not a compliment. I believe it is our responsibility to teach our children compassion, and part of that is not using words that put people down for conditions over which they have no control.

Pope Francis' arrival in Philadelphia this month comes as Roman Catholicism is losing some of its hold among young Americans, a new national survey finds, and when many Catholics disagree with their church on a broad array of family teachings. With more than a quarter of American Catholics divorced, and 44 percent reporting they have cohabited with a romantic partner without being married, "most American Catholics are comfortable with family arrangements that have been traditionally frowned upon by the church," according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center.

D EAR ABBY: A few years ago, my sister-in-law gave me a beautiful watch for Christmas. It became my favorite accessory for any dressy occasion. However, a year ago her brother and I divorced. I still have the watch and would love to wear it, but I'm not sure if it would be appropriate or if I should give it away. Thanks for your input. - Torn in Decatur, Ill. DEAR TORN: The watch was given to you with affection, and even if you wear it in your ex-husband's presence, the chances are small that he would realize who it was from.
