Lately, I have been saddened and thankful to be part of several children’s journeys through their parents’ divorce. Sad because it is so very painful to see children hurt. Thankful because having been around divorce myself, I know how badly children need support and a place to process their feelings. Often, the adults in their lives are preoccupied with their own pain and depression. And while parents try the best they can during separation and divorce, there is no denying that they are not at their best during a season like this.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN I have been pondering about what the No. 1 killer of the nuclear family is. I tend to believe it can be summed up and derived from one root source: selfishness. Selfishness comes in all forms. It leads people to affairs. It can cause individuals to strive for two-career homes (for the wrong reasons), which can lead to children being raised in day care. It even causes us to seek out "highs" to make our lives more exciting, such as drugs, alcohol or sexual addictions.

This week's topic is: Former husband and wife reflect on their divorce and how to stay friends for the sake of the children. The purpose of this subject is to assist divorced parents in protecting the welfare of innocent children. We will address a husband's version of divorce this week and in my next column, we will hear from his former wife. Greg and Judy Perkins went through a divorce about 16 years ago. Greg, who lives in La Crescenta, is now an elder at Canyon Harvest Church in Tujunga.

There is much research on the issue of divorce and the toll it takes on individuals and families ? emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially. Divorce affects all people, and Christians are no more immune than the general public. When a couple divorce, there is not just a loss of a relationship and nuclear family structure. Divorce also causes a breakdown in people?s support systems, creates financial hardship, spiritual disillusionment, depression and stress. This wreaks havoc on one?

Darleene Barrientos An estranged couple killed Tuesday in a murder-suicide shooting apparently had marital problems since they began counseling, and were living in separate houses in Glendale. Police say Allen Enayati, 57, shot and stabbed his estranged wife, Amanda Azar Enayati, 51, after she said she wanted a divorce during a 90-minute therapy session with an Encino clinical psychologist. The couple's psychologist told police they had been married for 33 years, but a restraining order filed in Glendale Superior Court showed they had been married 26 years, police said.

Amber Willard GLENDALE -- Beth Black helps others who are going through divorces with the aid of a mouse and kangaroo. The mouse is the one attached to her computer, where she maintains her Web site, splitsvilleonline.com, and the kangaroo is Bounce Back Jack, whose mission is to lift spirits with a poem and personal message from the sender. "It's still in its infancy," Black said of splitsvilleonline, which made its debut -- ironically -- on Feb. 14. The Glendale resident always wanted to open a gift shop of her own, but the timing was never right.

In my last column, I addressed the issue of remaining friends after divorce for the sake of the children. I interviewed Greg Perkins of La Crescenta, who gave me his opinion on why he and his ex-wife, Judy, divorced more than 15 years ago. While we know that divorce is not God's plan, we also know that it does indeed take place, even between Christians. This past week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Judy Perkins, Greg's ex-wife. In sharing her side of the divorce today, I pray someone will be helped.

It was last week that I attended the 50th wedding anniversary celebration of my great-aunt and uncle. The invitation had been extended to immediate family members and longtime friends of the couple. The party was a success and the couple were grateful their family and friends could take part in their special day. Some of the guests commented that 50 years of marriage was a great accomplishment for a couple who raised two successful children and took an active role in the lives of their grandchildren.

Last year's Terri Schiavo case forced many people into thinking about the unthinkable ? the need to safeguard one's family from making an excruciating decision in the event one becomes incapacitated by accident or disease. A legal document called a living will accomplishes just that, providing a power of attorney for health care decisions if an individual is unable to do so on his or her own. But many people do not know how to go about preparing such a document, which can delineate in advance treatment options ?

Here is a somewhat lurid case that has had a lot of twists and turns. Raymond Corder, a crane operator, married a lady named Shaoping Corder in 2000. A mere eight months after the marriage, a crane fell on Corder and killed him. This, of course, led to a lawsuit championed by Corder’s daughter from a previous marriage, Lisa Corder, along with Shaoping Corder, teaming up against the employer in a wrongful-death case. The case eventually settled for $1.1 million.

The number of houses and condominiums for sale in Glendale and Burbank stayed in the basement last month, according to the latest real estate reports, a likely result of homeowners waiting for the market to rebound to get more out of their investments, Realtors say. In Glendale, there were only 118 single-family houses on the market last month, a 42.7% decline from the 206 for sale in May 2011, according to statistics compiled by Realtor Keith Sorem...

We?ve all had the unfortunate experience of watching a trailer or television commercial for an upcoming movie that intrigued us enough to want to see it ? only to be disappointed by the final result. That will most likely be your assessment if you venture out to ?Bride Wars? because it can only be described as contrived, predictable and unfunny. There have been many pre-wedding movies over the last dozen years and the success of some has caused ambitious producers to keep trying for the magical formula, but it doesn?

As people who serve God and are supposed to hold to an absolute moral standard, do we support one another? I ask this question as we approach the Christmas holiday specifically, but would like to broach the topic on general terms as well. How do we view those in our church and community? Do we view them with the thought that they are children of God, worthy of kindness and concern? Or do we view them with a judgmental eye, waiting to hear of their failure through gossip, never going to them directly to see if there is truth to this gossip?

In my counseling practice I see many couples, and I see them at different stages of marital difficulties. More often than not I find myself wishing that the couple had come to see me sooner. Unfortunately, couples often wait until it is too late to save their marriage. I am thinking about this as I am reading a story about a divorce taking place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The couple — 42-year-old Moeun Sarim and his now-ex-wife, 35-year-old Vat Navy — were married in 1990.

Researchers Elizabeth Marquardt and Norval Glenn at the Institute for American Values studied how divorce affects a person's faith. Their four-year survey studied 1,500 young adults between 18 and 35, whose parents divorced. They found, among other things, that children of divorced parents are less religious than their peers, though many of them turned to God as a father figure in life. From your experience, how does divorce affect the faith of a child whose parents divorced?
