I'm saddened to have learned a couple in our stake is getting dirovced. 57 years of marriage. He was a bishop several decades prior. She alwasy supported him. I heard there may have been some mental health issues that cotributed to the situation. ALso their kids were in UT; she wanted to move from the east coast and he wanted to stay. tl;dr - I feel accountable and I feel the ministering sisters, ministering brothers, elder's quorum, Relief Society, bishopric, and other ward and stake friends bear some responsiblty in this. I was told that ward and stake leadership can help only as much as they're asked to. The problem with that is that it essentially absovles the Church from all responsibility which is factually inaccurate.
Parental love. They knew what was coming. THey knew what it would cost. He was Thier Firstborn. They knew He would be successful. Even though They knew it needed to happen, I don't know if They wanted to let Him go. What do you all think? What terms describe these parental feelings?
