Sabbath Service To Be Held at Temple Israel A Sabbath Service with sermon Kill be held tonight at Temple Isreal begining at 8 p. m. Rabbi Alfred Vise has chosen as his sermon topic, "Prayer, A Two Way Conversation Between God and Man." Kuth MUlett Simmering Down Could Prevent Many Divorces There would probably be a lot fewer divorces in this country if couples who think they have come to the parting of ways were required to live apart for a year before suing for divorce. This enforced "sim m e r i n g down" year" wou Id undoubtedly give many couples — especially long-married ones—an opportunity to get a calm look at the situation, They'd ponder not only what they are ready to give up but the kind of life they are so certain would be better than what they have had. In a year of living apart, hurts, humiliations, differences of opinion would begin to shrink to normal size and to look not so much like insurmountable objects as like stumbling blocks that could have been gotten around. In a year of living apart, the satisfactory things about a marriage would be remembered, the taken- for - granted mutual dependency would be missed. And with a long time to think things through, a great many divorce-bound husbands and wives would come to the conclusion that "It was partly my fault, too." It Visiting In the 3, P.

Miss- will be the weekend guest of Mr. takes time for any aggrieved marriage partner to get around to where he can see that he made a few mistakes himself. It's a pity that our divorce laws don't require a "simmerlng-down year." For In a year of living apart a lot of couples who once knew they loved each other would undoubtedly find out that buried under boredom, hurt, anger and misunderstandings the love was still there. Even though it isn't required by law, any couple who were once happy together,, but are now ready to call it quits, ought to prescribe a "simmering-down year" for themselves. A year Is not so long—if a marriage can be saved for a lifetime.
