  • Personally, I get sick of the blame the parents cop out. My parents divorced but they weren't in love anymore. It was mutual so no weird complexes of who's fault it was. I am glad they didn't stay together for us kids, we would have all been miserable, plus I wouldn't have gotten awesome half siblings and a cool stepmom if they did.

    I do tend to be picky about relationships though, about the 6 month mark I know if it is going to be long or short term by then and I tend to cut the short terms so none of the guys would be left lead on. If that is good or bad or due to my parents divorce psychologically wise, it doesn't matter, I take full personal accountability for my relationship decisions.

  • Depends entirely on the way the parents deal with the situation. Some can be amicable, some can't. I will say though, that sometimes not divorcing can be a lot more troublesome and damaging to the child in the middle of a shitty relationship.
