Divorce is a common occurrence in our times today-very many broken families exist in the world and this is something that the children suffer more than the parents who are involved because in most cases, the kids dont even know what is going on between their parents! Coping with separation needs effective management-The parents involved should keep the children out of their misunderstanding. The children should be free to visit either of the parents and should opt to live with any of the parents their choice. Am glad as for you, PIITZY, this divorce is not hurting you so much, but please, dont forget your Dad because, you will always need him! Since you are living with your Mom, look unto her with respect, love and thank her all the time for being there for you all these years single handedly!

hugs...have never been in this situation so can't advise, except to say that its better to have 2 happy parents who happen to be apart than parents who remain together and are not happy. I hope it all works out and you learn from your parents' mistakes. hugs and more hugs

I've never been in that situation, but doesn't mean I have perfect parents. Like everyone else, there are fights and arguments, and now I'm married we have those days too. I know someone whose parents got divorced but she never talks about it and I just don't want to remind her of those days in the past. I think what matters is that you and your mother have each other.
