I'll say this: The media wasn't invited to my marriage, and they're definitely not invited into the divorce.
Instead, I think over the years we have cut the strength of marriage and relationships by the law and weakened the institution. We have tried to deal with relationships with no-fault divorce, with child custody, with so many other avenues; and it has not helped.
I don't know, one out of every two marriages ends up in divorce so there's a lot of great people out there who people aren't happy with.

From time to time, I'll look back through the personal journals I've scribbled in throughout my life, the keepers of my raw thoughts and emotions.

My mother, whom I love dearly, has continually revised my life story within the context of a complicated family history that includes more than the usual share of divorce, step-children, dysfunction, and obfuscation.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
