WHEN IT'S TIME TO GROW UP
In the past five years I've had twenty-three
hundred one-to-one encounters with people in counselling
and from those encounters, I have gone through the
trauma of divorce with many.
It's one of those things that happens in this
society -- it's a wreck on lftfe's highway. When a
wreck happens you send an ambulance, not a firing

of the greatest problems and by far the largest
that people have in making a home work, is money
management. It seems that folks get involved when
they first marry in buying too many things without
