Know The Answer?
What did the lost son in the parable do with all the money his father gave him?
He squandered it.

Divorce has become an accepted solution to unhappy marriages. But is divorce the right solution? All a Kanuri man of Bornu province in northeastern Nigeria must do to divorce his wife is say, "I divorce you," in front of witnesses. A couple without children in communist Russia need only visit the local registry office to undo the connubial knot and sign away their marriage. After payment of fifty rubles, an immediate divorce decree is granted. It's not that easy to get a divorce in the Western world. Not yet, anyway. But the ever increasing rise in divorce in the affluent West is ample evidence of how acceptable divorce has become. Couples are divorcing more than ever before. And in what seems to be an almost concerted effort to make divorce the accepted solution to an unhappy marriage, Western legislatures are bent on bringing about quick, easy divorces. Easier, quicker, "no fault" divorce is becoming a modern Western trend.
