PARENTS SHOULD GET DIVORCED IF THEY ARE UNHAPPY. This is something I am living through. Throughout my entire childhood into young adulthood, my mother has non stop told me about how my father and her are only together because they think it's be better for my brother and I (and my mom wouldn't have the money to live on her own). But anyway, IT'S NOT BETTER. I'm 19 now, I still live with them, and it's been a living hell. I honestly think it has affected me as a person. I'm always in a bad mood at home and I have really bad anxiety, and I think it stems from their constant fighting. It has gotten worse through the years, pretty much because my mom developed a drinking problem FROM her unhappiness with my dad. It's now starting to affect the whole family. A few months ago my parents were fighting. My dad tried to slam the door in her face, but my mom put her hand in the door and I!! had to fucking drive her to the ER with a bloody and cut up hand that needed 30 stitches in one thumb. I remember all the times they screamed at each other (nearly every day) and I honestly can't take it anymore! I don't have the funds to live on my own yet, but I feel like I need to get it soon for my own mental health. It's heart breaking to sit at the dinner table and see my mom stare at my dad with such hate in her eyes, as if she wants to kill him. I WANT them to divorce. I want them to be happy, and they clearly aren't in their relationship. For any parents or future parents reading this, DIVORCE IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR OWN CHILDREN.1
