Wouldn’t it be great if marriages came with instructions, rules or a handbook? Arizona actually has a booklet called the “Marriage Handbook.” You can get it online at https://www.azdes.gov/marriage/pdf/PPP-1038AHBPPD.pdf or in person at the court service centers. As is often the case, I did not realize how many such publications existed until I Googled “Divorce Handbook” and got 16,700 hits. Now I wonder what is the impact of these books? Unfortunately, it does not seem to be much. This made me wonder how can you educate people about divorce and if you can at all. People do not seem to be interested in a topic until it directly effects them and by then it is often too late. What do you think?
