What Teddi Ann Barry can say in an interview on
The Conflict Between Couples Over the Covid Vaccine:

Though the percentage of Americans who have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine is slowly climbing amid the rise of the Delta variant, some have firmly made up their minds not to get the shot. Reasons for refusing the vaccine may vary, but one common byproduct has become clear: seriously strained relationships with loved ones on the other side of the heated moral and ideological debate. (The Guardian, 2021)

    • The reality over the fallout concerning the vaccination conflict within families is now being seen in custody cases.
    • In the law community, we are seeing that the problems are even deeper than this. Mental health is a component that goes along with this.
    • Marriage counselors and mediators should be a part of the conflict resolution mix.
    • Counselors and mediators are essential professionals and are best suited to work on problems that go beyond dividing up assets or managing custody issues.
    • Seeing a divorce attorney should get the last person an unhappily married person or couple should see. Although extremely challenging, couples need to work through important issues like this and it isn’t easy when emotions run high.
    • Let’s go deeper over the vaccine debate: Is this a question of freedom?
      Is it healthy? When coping with systemic conflicts with couples, it oftentimes manifests as just something else to argue about.
    • The pandemic has acerbated existing marriage problems.

Working with an experienced counselor or mediator first and a divorce lawyer last is the best prescription that could help save a couple from adding to the already rising rate of divorce filings during the pandemic.
