  5. Thou shalt not try to reconcile thy past and reconstruct thy future by a quick new marriage.

  6. Thou shalt not make thy children the victims of thy past marriage.

  7. Thou shalt not spend all thy time trying to convince thy children how terrible and evil their departed parent is.

  8. Thou shalt learn all thou can about being a one-parent family and get on with it.
