I was just wondering: how many of you here have divorced parents? How old were you, how hard was it on you, how old are you now, etc.
My parents divorced 6 years ago, when I was about 10...kind of blew my mind...had no idea it was coming and just felt like it just COULD NOT happen...even after hearing about it. If I'd been 2 years younger, like my brother was at the time, I think I would've made it through with little problem, but unfortunatly it was fairly tough. Angry at my dad for awhile, but a year or two later I came to total grips with it all.
And besides: dad re-married and I have 2 new step-siblings (3rd is due in 4 months!) because of it...mom is re-married as well. So basically, it turned out for the best.
I'd love to hear of other stories...hope it isn't hard on too many of you...
Oh, also: how many of you are worried of possibly getting divorced someday as a result? For me, it has made me more aware of it all and has forced me to try to "prepare" for marital problems that will undoubtedly arise when I finally get hitched.
