How did my relationship force my parents to get a divorce?

If they had been doing ok before that it wouldn't have been an issue in the first place.
While the fight may have been over your relationship with your boyfriend that doesn't make it your fault. Just like if I punch some guy over a sports match, the teams didn't make me do it, I did.
Dont beat yourself up, them blaming you just shows their immaturity.
You can't be the only cause of a divorce. That is between them. That being said if they are completely opposed to each other on your relationship, like if one person hates your mate and just wants to disown you over it and the other accepts it and welcomes you over all the time... that can be a big strain on them and a big source of contention. Still, it is solely up to them if they feel they need to divorce over it.
Nope that is a copout on their part. There is no way people who have been in a relationship for decades get the motivation for divorce from their kid's relationship issues. They are typical baby boomers, they refuse to hold themselves accountable and try to blame it on the next generation.
You can always get a new boyfriend but your parents relationship may not recover... think about it
It is possible that it could be part of why they may be getting a divorce but honestly there was a lot more to it then just that. This relationship may have been as they say, “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” I don’t know the whole story behind the relationship, you say it’s not bad but people usually take up for their partner whether it’s bad or not, even in abusive relationships. I can see why your dad would be mad cause maybe it is a bad relationship and your mom is enabling it. Rather than them standing on the same ground together as a couple supporting one other your mom is going against your dad in this. Not to say that he’s right.
