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.

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.

It is really distressing to find normally open-minded columnists like Ruth Duskin Feldman, in her Feb. 8 article "Divorce's nastiness," continuing to espouse, through the examples used, the fiction that only men are the culprits. The three examples she used are all of women who are badgered and harassed. What of all of the men who are just as frequently the victims of the woman who wants out regardless of what it costs the man? I have been in the role of marriage counselor and marital therapist for many, many years and have yet to see the honorable male get an equitable post- marriage arrangement without spending hundreds or thousands of dollars to arrive at such a state - if he ever does.

The Affordable Care Act is changing more than the way Americans buy health insurance. It's making it simpler for unhappily married couples to uncouple. Word is starting to spread among family law attorneys that in the post-ACA era, health insurance isn't the binder it once was for holding bad marriages together. With more options available on the market and preexisting conditions no longer an issue, people once reluctant to divorce for fear of losing health insurance coverage would do well to reconsider.

Money has an enormous effect on domestic relationships. Marriages are made and broken over money. Money troubles may scare people from divorce. And being single has its own issues. Half the fun of this investopedia.com post on "marriage-killing money issues" is seeing the related Web links, such as "The Tax Benefits of Having a Spouse," and "Kids or Cash: The Modern Marriage Dilemma. " Issues including the debts spouses bring to a marriage, and how each spouse approaches spending after marriage, can tear a relationship apart before it's had time to thrive.

D EAR ABBY: I have been married for 19 years, and this is the third time I have caught my wife cheating. I didn't catch her "in the act" because she disguised it behind "vacations with her girlfriends. " What happened was I caught her sending some guy nude pictures of herself and lying about having stayed at a friend's house. (She had spent the night with a guy.) I have remained in this marriage because I wanted to raise all my kids before separating or divorcing. I am leaving eventually, but want to stay four more years to raise my last son. Is it immoral to lie and pretend like I want to work it out?

Sharon Roth-Lichtenfeld and Pat Obst know too much about loss and what they call "forever change. " Roth-Lichtenfeld, a former art director who is now a life coach, lived through a friend's rape and murder, her mother's death when Roth-Lichtenfeld was 34, divorce, a child with special needs, and, last summer, a preventive double mastectomy.

MOSCOW - Russian media from all sides of the political spectrum have reacted with unusual compassion to the announcement of President Vladimir Putin's divorce. Putin, 60, and his 55-year-old wife, Lyudmila, announced the end of their marriage less than two months shy of their 30th anniversary in an interview Thursday with Russian television. His spokesman Dmitry Peskov could not say when they would formally divorce. Divorce is common in Russia. Nearly 700,000 Russian couples dissolved their marriages in 2009, according to UNICEF.

"It was our joint decision," Putin said. Lyudmila Putin, a former Aeroflot flight attendant, was rarely seen in public during her husband's long tenure at the top of Russian politics and implied that she didn't like to travel with him on his frequent trips.

AN OFFBEAT child's-eye view of divorce enlivens a depressingly familiar scenario in "What Maisie Knew. " The title may ring a bell - it belongs to a Henry James short story on the same subject, updated here with a contemporary characters. Julianne Moore is an unraveling rock singer in a disintegrating marriage to a businessman (Steve Coogan) - the only bond they have remaining is their destructive contempt for each other. "Maisie" is often scaldingly bitter - Moore and Coogan allow their characters' destructive hatred to play out without much modulation - and it's a little scary.
