The kids? C'mon...wouldn't you rather they be subject to a GOOD relationship?
Often, it's better to have come from a troubled home life than to live in one.
Everyone but the lawyers.
The kids, I have friends who's parents are divorced, their views on family are completely different, scarred by the divorce of their parents.
Weren't they happy at all that their parents were finally happy?
They are unhappy that their parents are with different people and they don't think they will be able to have a permanent relationship with a significant other.
Mom & Dad fought a lot. I prayed almost every night they would get divorced.
So are things better now?
Could go either way. They are dead.
I'm sorry to hear that.
Whoever I think got the worst end of the deal. In some divorces, I am happy for both of them.
Years ago a person was only as good as their word....
Probably the men, cause statistically they end up the most screwed in a divorce. Maybe the kids, but they get two times the Christmas presents, so not as much.
Warring people who stay together "for the kids" do great harm to the kids. I feel sorry for the whole family if they can't work out agreements that are healthy for everyone involved. Keep the damn lawyers out of it or there will be no money for college.
the one that getts all the assets and money of the other person that had achieved the most whilst married
The kids and the love lost
You'd rather the kids grow up in a home full of hatred and dissension?
