Is this true? My parents aren't divorced but they have a bad marriage. My home was always miserable and there's emotional abuse going on between my parents and my dad emotionally abuses my siblings and me. Especially me.
I've been to therapy to work out my issues. Personally I don't see the problem with marrying someone of divorced parents. Seeing two miserable people together can hurt children badly and make them long for their parents to separate.
We all have baggage in one way or another. If a guy has divorced parents but is mature and committed to being married I think he can be fine. After all sometimes seeing your parents in a poor relationship will inspire you to be different in your own. I tnink history only repeats itself when people haven't addressed their problems.
Plus my own family is messed up so I think someone who is from a perfect family would find fault with me anyway. What do you think?

I think it depends on the person's culture. I'm South Asian and my "community" looks down upon divorce. It's treated as this...disease. Contagious. Heritable. They think that if a kid's parents got divorced, then that kid is likely to also get divorced. I don't know if there are any statistics to support such a claim- but that's how some people view it. When I asked my parents why they won't get a divorce, they stated that one of their reasons is because they don't want it to taint my sister's chances of getting married.1
