Scientology Doctrine on Marriage and Divorce
There is no specific doctrine on Marriage and Divorce. This is something that is left mostly up to the individual. I am not talking about the Church doctrine. The church of scientology has introduced their own doctrine which is quite separate from the original philosophy of L Ron Hubbard.
Most of the information about marriage and divorce can be found in two books. The original "New Slant on Life", by L. Ron Hubbard (not the later edition which is very incomplete as the church 'Authorities' have removed much of the salient matter and changed other parts see Scientologists Freezone for more information) contains much information on the subject. Such books are often available on auctions sites for a few dollars. The later books are not by Ron Hubbard, but the name Ron Hubbard has been included as part of the title to give the illusion he wrote it.
There are three chapters in the book that relate to this area.
A Womans Creativity
How to Live with Children, and
There are also references in the books, "Science of Survival", "Dianetics Today" and of course "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.". For those studying the subject and interested in getting an accurate picture of the philosophy, one should obtain books printed by the Author himself prior to 1980.
The original philosophy grants the importance of Marriage and of children. It provides some guidelines, researched and hard won, on the subject of the relationship between men and women, sex and children. One of the accusations against scientologists is their divorce rate. Of course it has to be used to be effective and, just as in other religions, not everyone uses it correctly resulting in poor marriages, unhappiness and divorce.
However this does not detract from the basic philosophy which is available and which one can use to enhance ones life.
Provided it is actually studied and used correctly.
