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.

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.

Question: I had a college friend until age 35, when he started dating and then married a girl who was not just entirely uninterested in me and my then-girlfriend (now my spouse), but downright rude to us. We overlooked much. Our friendship ended when, after six months of planning, we drove 300 miles, checked into a hotel, and called them to go out to dinner as we had arranged - and she (and he) blew us off. We were incredulous. It takes two to make a friendship, but only one to really screw it up. Twenty-some years later, I reached out to him through social media.

DEAR ABBY: Is it possible that people can just fall out of love with each other? We have been married for 21 years and have three kids who are older. Over the last five years, my wife and I have stopped communicating. We don't do anything together and have little desire to be with each other anymore. We are good parents, but as far as being husband and wife, we have pretty much neglected each other emotionally and physically. Neither of us has strayed. We haven't been to a marriage counselor because I just don't love my wife anymore, and I'm not saying this to be mean.

Question: I'm throwing a large party this weekend and know, based upon the bar I'm setting out and the guests I've invited, there will be a lot of drinking. I haven't invited my sister and her new husband because he is a recovering alcoholic. Is this the right decision to shield them from a party they may not feel comfortable at, or should I invite them and let them decide? I don't want to make them feel left out, but I also want the rest of my guests to have a great time. Answer: I'm more worried about your friends who can be counted on to get wasted than I am about your brother-in-law.

ISSUE | DIVORCE Trim waiting period A Philadelphia lawyer took the position in a commentary that the Pennsylvania legislature should not reduce the waiting period for a no-fault divorce from two years to one ("Don't shorten waiting time for Pa. divorce," July 13). As leaders of the state chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, we support the reduction, which would benefit all involved, including financially dependent spouses. The two-year waiting period is harmful to children and divorcing spouses.

By Gerald J. Schorr A bill to shorten the waiting period to establish no-fault grounds for divorce for certain Pennsylvania litigants has passed the state House and been voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee. If House Bill 380 comes up for a vote in the state Senate, lawmakers should vote no. Under the bill, parties who agree that a marriage is over ("irretrievably broken") may still establish grounds for no-fault divorce once 90 days have passed after service of a complaint in divorce.

Divorced and civilly remarried Catholics, as well as cohabitating unmarried couples, must "refrain from sexual intimacy" to receive Holy Communion in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput has asserted in a new set of pastoral guidelines. Released Friday, the guidelines instruct clergy and other archdiocesan leaders on implementing Amoris Laetitia , a major document on family that Pope Francis issued in April. His six-page instruction, which appears on the archdiocesan website, may be the first of its kind issued by the bishop of any American diocese in response to Amoris Laetitia , Latin for "the joy of love.
