How do you feel about remarrying?

March 27, 2018

All married couples, starting a common life, hope to live it happily for a long time. But this is not the case for everyone. According to statistics, 40% of marriages end up in divorce. 

After some time, when the divorce process is in the past and passions subsist, a significant number of people are beginning to think about the possibility of remarriage. Such thoughts are absolutely normal since people seek happiness. If the first marriage did not succeed, then you should neither despair nor assume that life is over. 

Some believe that remarriage is an excellent opportunity to build a family life. Perhaps this attempt is not so emotional and romantic, but it is more insured against the surprises and mistakes of the youth. Just recall, how often you’ve said to yourself: “If only I knew then…” Now you know – and you have the opportunity not to repeat the past mistakes. 

Remarriage usually starts from the assessment of the personality rather than from strong emotions, love grows over the years, and this process requires patience and effort. For some, remarriage is another attempt to become happy, while others, for whatever reason, are negative and somewhat skeptical about remarrying.

So, what do you think about remarrying?

  • 1. I support it; this is a chance to be happy and build a life with the person you love
  • 2. I have nothing against it, but only if partners understand the mistakes of the past and aren’t going to repeat them in the new marriage
  • 3. I do not support it; the marriage must be concluded only once in a lifetime
  • 4. I don’t support it because I see no sense in it; if a person wasn’t able to cope with problems in one marriage, they unlikely to succeed in the next one
  • 5. I'm against marriage in general

Have you ever encountered domestic violence?

Anyone can experience domestic violence. However, people who commit it or the ones who are the victims often find an excuse for it or simply deny it. This is especially the case when it comes to psychological violence, not physical violence. 

Noticing and acknowledging the presence of signs of abuse in your relationship means making the first step on the way to being free. No one should live in fear of the loved person. Domestic violence arises in a situation where one of the spouses wants to dominate and control the other one. 

Both psychological and physical violence serve one sole purpose: the achievement and maintenance of total control over another person. The attacker will use your fear, guilt, shame, and humiliation to keep you in the fist or under the heel – depending on the gender. They can threaten you or hurt you and those dear to you. The purpose of domestic violence is always to establish control over the victim when the abuser attempts to become a fully-fledged “manager” of victim’s life. 

In compliance, the victim becomes helpless, cannot correctly assess the situation, sometimes even doesn’t try to protect oneself. Sufficiently many people experiencing violence don’t dare to resist it. Meanwhile, the legislation guarantees each person the rights and freedoms and protects against their violation. 

So, have you ever encountered domestic violence?

  • 1. Yes, often
  • 2. Yes, few times
  • 3. No, never

How do you feel about adopting by the same-sex couples?

March 25, 2018

Whatever people feel towards homosexuals, children living in single-sex families in developed Western countries today have become an everyday reality. New forms of partnership, couples with children from different marriages, development of artificial insemination technologies – all these changes result in such children becoming more common which, in turn, leads to ambiguous reaction. 

When discussions raise the issue of bringing up children in gay couples, one aspect of the situation is often discussed: is the homosexual orientation of adults influencing the formation of sexual preferences of the child. Psychologists and sexologists are inclined to a negative response because many children are raised, for example, only mothers and grandmothers, without participation in the process of the father, or vice versa. 

People find it difficult to imagine that a child can become gay only under the influence of the parent’s orientation. Much more important in this regard are the personal qualities of the adults who bring up the child. The question of adoption is resolved positively when adoptive parents are the adult, responsible people who want and can take care of children. That is, some people believe that children in homosexual families grow up well, and their development and upbringing do not differ from children in heterosexual couples. 

Alternatively, some are convinced that the parent’s orientation, as well as the absence of a mother or a father for the child, may negatively affect the child’s psyche. Also, religious beliefs and moral and conservative values can become a significant obstacle. 

So, how do you feel about adopting by the same-sex couples?

  • 1. I have nothing against; this is a private decision and the right of every couple, the state should not interfere
  • 2. I don’t support it; this is unnatural/immoral
  • 3. Difficult to say
