The divorce album is one of pop's strangest quasi-traditions, treating the rights, wrongs, and ruin of a personal relationship with the arts of the pop love song. Marvin Gaye did it with Here, My Dear , Bob Dylan with Blood on the Tracks , and husband-and-wife folkies Richard and Linda Thompson made one together in Shoot Out the Lights . This year, producer/songwriter/singer Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Toni Braxton, a singer he has produced two albums for, made one of the best duet records in this line, titled Love, Marriage & Divorce . (Babyface divorced Tracey Edmonds in 2005, and Braxton let go of Keri Lewis in 2013.)

So when they began talking about buying The Inquirer's parent company in 2011, they had concerns about the kind of business marriage theirs might be.

Old school pride As a 1978 Martin Luther King High School graduate, I was honored to see young men from King grace the front page of The Inquirer ("Kings of the screen," April 24). When I started at King in 1972, King and Germantown High were big and little brother schools. At the time, students spent 9th and 10th grades at King and went to Germantown for 11th and 12th grades. In 1973, the School District separated the schools and they became sibling rivals. I chose to stay at King. We got to choose the school colors (purple and gold)

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.

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?
