my mom is finally going to leave my dad. he hasn't been treating her right for a long time and she has just had enough. she wants to be happy and she deserves her happiness back. I hate seeing her come home to a house and force herself to be strong for my brother and I because we both know what is going on and at this point I just want them to get divorced so my mom will be happy again. she doesn't deserve the things my dad has put her through. it's hard for me to deal with though because I work for my dad and I am extremely mad at him for how he handles situations and how he doesn't pay attention to my mom and is so emotionally distant, but at the same time he is my dad and there is a part of me that feels bad for him and it makes me sad. I want both of them to be happy but I know my mom DESERVES happiness after all the shit my dad as put her through for the past 8 years. he has messed up and never owned up to anything and also believes he never did anything wrong, when the whole entire town knows that he did. I don't know what to think I am confused how do I deal with my parents going through a divorce? everything about my life is going to change. its scary.

I don't know exactly what has happened between them, and neither do you. Like always, there's his story, her story, and somewhere in the middle, there's the truth. Unless one of them is hitting the other or threatening to do so, there's not a lot of call for you to take sides. You have a lot of hard days ahead, getting your mind around everything, so don't worry too much about your folks. They're going to be worrying about you if they're decent people.
