Divorce is an institution designed mainly for the inequitable distribution of assets. The assets of tangible value are the least precious. It is the remnants of a past history, the inheritors, who experience the greatest devaluation and loss.
Ancient history is tantamount to an autopsy.
Separation is a word which conjures a breakdown of union, a discontinuance of establishment or hermitism.
The polar opposite meaning is achieved when separation from; the mundane, the harmful, the illicit or the forbidden becomes a human aspiration.
Then it becomes the tool for refocusing priorities, soul cleansing, an admission of moral values and a declaration of love for all that is HIM.
