Divorce is hard enough on children without their parents throwing accusations at each other. When it comes to child custody issues in Alabama, the issue of parental alienation is rearing its ugly head. When one parent accuses the other of turning a child against him or her through manipulation, parental alienation may or may not be at play. Experts say there are times, however, when the theory of parental alienation is used as an excuse by abusive former partners and parents to gain control and/or custody of their kids.
It seems the days when most marriages last until death doeth part are over. The word divorce doesn't make most Alabama residents bat an eyelash today, and even baby boomers are realizing that when it's over, it's over. In fact, it seems that more older married couples are deciding that they would rather go into the future as singles rather than as part of a couple.
