My parents are divorced and I would give up the extra gifts in a heartbeat to actually have a real family instead of a shitty, broken one.
So would i :( I actually get jealous of my boyfriend's family, because they're still together, they all look so happy..
How about I wish my parents were divorced so I won't be living in hell anymore.
Why is this voted down?
Sometimes they really DO need to be separated.
When both of my parents lived in the same house the tension was tangible.
Yeah, my friend's parents are pretty much staying together for her. It bothers her, because they're both having her keep secrets.
It's stupid to "stay together for her" if they just continue to act as if everything is wrong. It would probably be better that they separate so that the tension is eventually released instead of constantly building. Especially if they put it on her with secrets and such.
Yeah, I don't really understand the rational. It may be a money thing, I'm not sure.
It's even more annoying when one of your parents dies and you're spending that first Christmas without them there while selfish ingrate punks wish for separation
It's amazing how they're incredibly jealous of me since I get two. Yet I envy them for having a really big family who are together and actually manage to get by.
so true. And its annoying that they assume I get two christmases. My parents live in different states. Trust me, a broken family isn't worth a few extra presents
I've never really gotten that...
I've just assumed you would get less because the money isn't together and they're each having to pay for their own bills rather than splitting the cost (two houses costs more than one).
Sometimes parents are better off separated. I think divorce is better than a miserable, sorry, unhappy, abusive marriage especially if there are kids involved because they're affected by all this negative environment.
I think she meant horrible to want divorce for the sake of gifts. My parents are separated and my mom wants my dad back and I think it's a horrible idea. I agree, divorce can be a necessary evil
I wished for my parents to be separated when I was ten so that I wouldn't have to deal with he fighting anymore......but they didn't, and they're still fighting......eleven years later...
