A former Texas hand surgeon has a knack for making headlines. This time, the ex-doctor who lives about 200 miles east of San Antonio has been arrested for failing to pay child support.
Let's examine a hypothetical situation: a married San Antonio man is in the process of getting a divorce. He has been separated from his wife for some months and he sees no reason to wait until the divorce is final to begin dating. So he signs up with an online dating service and is asked if he's married. And he's asked if he has kids.
San Antonio basketball fans might not have rooted for Allen Iverson when he stepped on to the court to face the Spurs, but they had to acknowledge the man's undeniable hoops talents. The undersized point guard could score like few others in the history of the NBA, could dish the ball (perhaps not as often as coaches would have liked) and could be a ferocious defender. He even contested rebounds against giants of the league.
Military life can be rough on family life and require great personal sacrifice for all involved. Sometimes, that personal sacrifice is more than some can take and families suffer as a result. In one former Texas based Sergeant's case, that personal sacrifice led to great suffering, even greater joy, and unfortunately has also resulted in another family's unintentional suffering as well.
While many of us in Texas have never thought that Facebook and other social media sites would be a source of contention for a divorce proceeding, as those social centers grow in popularity, they expand the legal complexities associated with these difficult relationships. Solving the dilemma is also not as easy as 'de-friending' or 'blocking' somebody either.
