Nope my parents are happily married for 20 years now and my family are perfectly intact. I have friends from brokn family, as I hear their stories, I'm thankful that I don't havethose expeienced that they have. I think I'm lucky and thank God that my parents still inlove with each other and that I have a happy family although not perfect. Just keep praying and trust God. Pray also for your parents especially for your mother that she may changed for the better.

i'm also from a broken family. I never thought that it would happen to me during my childhood life. my life was just miserable for that but i'm praying to the Lord that if possible He would help me to go with my emotional needs.bu tfor now, i learned to live without my father and i learned to go on with my life. life goes on and its no use of thinking and crying for that. i remained strong and learned to stand on my own feet. thanks be to God!!!

My parents are still married. There has been a lot of tough times but they have made it. Im not sure I would have stayed through the things that they went through but they are a great example to me now.

family - i'm happy to belong to an intact family
My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this year and I'm happy to belong to an intact family, although it is far from perfect. I have prayed for you, that you may find happiness and peace.

My parents broke up when I was 10, the year before I started high school, to be honest it didnt affect me to much, I was use to my mum having a go at my dad every night for being lazy. It was good at the beginning not having to close the doors from their yelling, not only that I saw my dad on the weekends. Couple months later though it got abit awkward, he started saying someone who he knew from before and at the time she was a b*tch and I didn't get along too well, which hurt cause I was really close to my dad. But then something happened between my brother and my dad and then my brother stopped going round and started having a go at me constantly for visiting him, it was hard at first cause I was pretty close to my brother but that only got worse over time and then alot of stuff happened between me and him. Am only now starting to get along with him after awhile of hating each other, I blame my dad for losing my relationship with my brother. Currently I still talk to my dad and see him occassionally, but he wasnt really apart of my life during my teenage years. About 3 years after I stopped talking to him for the first time cause of my brother he rang me up and said he was getting married(to the woman from earlier). I guess I just learnt to get along without my dad, it use to bother me but it doesnt anymore.

My parents divorced when I was about six years old. He was cheating on my mother with her bestfriend who was also married. It was hard. Very hard. He moved on and somewhat forgot about me. (only child). He went off to marry the woman he was cheating with and had two children. I am now 23 years old. I used to question God and why he did things like break up my family. I used to be jealous of people that had both of their parents. Until one day I became more involved in faith. Faith that everything has a reason. Sometimes we do not know the reason and sometimes never will but there is. I look back and have adjusted well. I don't speak to my father anymore. I love my mom for being the strongest person I know without building a wall. I know that you too will get through this. It sucks. I know it does. Have faith my friend and my prayers are truly behind you.

I don't come from a broken home but my i live in a dysfunctional family since my father works abroad and comes home every two years... before he comes home every year but he transferred to a work where in the contract stated that he can come home every two years but vacation time is 2 months... it is not a broken home but almost the same since we don't see much of him... it has been like that since i was a little girl... so i don't really know my father that much...

I came from a very broken home, but I'm not sure how comfortable I am answering your post because it is so heavily focused on a religion I am not part of. *forges ahead anyway* My own history is... bleak. The past is like a pit of darkness that I fall into sometimes if I'm not careful. My parents were divorced when I was so young that I barely remember them being together... I do have a really vague memory involving dishes being thrown around the kitchen, but I'm not sure if it's a real memory or something someone else told me happened that my mind created a memory for. Rather than living with one of my parents, I was bounced around between various family members throughout my childhood. Almost all of them abused me. When I did live with my mother, it would be for brief periods... she would come to pick me up unexpectedly and then drop me somewhere unexpectedly when she was done "playing Mommy". She has left me at parties, left me with people she barely knew, moved away while I was at school so that I came home to an empty apartment and a landlord who told me I no longer lived there. *sighs* I lived with a grandmother whose husband sexually abused me. My father lived with my grandmother sometimes too, but he would lock himself in his basement rooms and I would sometimes not see him for months, only to finally see him completely drunk out of his mind. I lived with aunts who let their dogs bite me and then blamed me. I lived with friends of various family members... and sometimes I had nowhere to live at all. I must say that I am sorry for you that your situation is not pleasant, and I do wish you all the luck in the world getting out of it, but from my perspective it sounds like your situation could also be much worse.
