Changing Perceptions of Divorce

By Steven Bayme

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1994

Contemporary culture has removed the stigma from divorce, but has failed to replace it with a bias in favor of marriage. Public policy and the media should be reoriented to strengthen marriage; programs should be created to train young people for marriage and to convey realistic expectations of what makes marriage work. The Jewish community must participate in the broader societal debate on marriage and family, communicating its preference for the two-parent form and upholding the family as the antidote to unbridled individualism.
