The significant thing about the That's the Question put to me by an unhappy wife and mother of two children, in ending a long letter devoted to her husband's faults. That's a pointless question for any woman to ask herself or anybody eUe. The question for (he wife who Is considering divorce isn't "Am I Justified?" but "will I be better oft divorced?" And If there are children the question has to be lenglhened to Include "Will the children and I be better off?" A woman can make a terrible mistake if she gets a divorce , because she IF certain she is "Justified" In leaving her husband. What does It matter If both she and the world think sho is Justified In ending her marriage, If either she or her children are worse off after a divorce? Ten years ago when Gloria R. asked for and got her divorce nobody binned her. She was Justified—In her own mind and in the eyes of the couple's friends. But today Gloria Is a lonely, bitter woman—with nothing hut her pride and her feeling tlmt she was justified In breaking up her marriage to comfort her. If, 10 years ago, she had asked herself, "Will the children and 1 be better off if I divorce John?' she might have arrived at A different answer. Divorce Solvcrt Nothing For she and the children haven't been better off. John wasn't a perfect husband. But she and tlv children had a better home will John than they have had since. A John's wife she had n place In tin community \vhlch she had neve been able to make for licr.self. Th children have been deprived of father all these years. And Cilorli herself, hns known a deep er tlion the lonllness of » not-too lumpy marriage. Of course, there arc many case where a woman Is better off dlv orccd. And there arc cases wher the children are better off, too. before she asks for a divorce a man should be sure that she the children will be better nf Thai's far more Important thu whether or not she is justified. After all. many a wise woman hi stuck by a marriage and seen a divorce. And you can be sure Unit the reason why she stuck by the marriage- was because she wns niac Heal enough to. HsV herself "Will I be bettor off divorced?" Instead of "Am 1 Justified In ecltlug a divorce?"
