I'm 26... so I don't really care. I'd rather they stay together, but it's not like I live with them or even see them that often. Do as you wish would be my motto. But, I can see how it would freak out a lot of people. What would you do if your parents divorced? Would you get mad at them?

Aye, my parents divorced back when I was maybe 4 or 5, but it was much needed. My father, or mom's sperm donor, was nothing nice! He was abusive, and a nonproductive partner. I speak to him now, but it's just he's getting old and I believe everyone deserves a second chance. Don't trustm, but I'll givem a shot! Go figure this, I've been divorced for 4 years now, for the same reason but sort of reversed...lol! Taripre$

Well thats a tough question! For me i'm 17 and in New Zealand and my parents are soo stubbon that they are a match made in heaven. I love them with all my heart but if it did happen i wouldnt choose sides or try to get them back together becuase somethings are just meant to be and I have to respect their choices , Just like they respect mine and i would continue to love them. Saying all that I don't think my parents would ever divorce , My dads at diabetic and he would not be able to cope without my mother lol!

Husband and wife must adjust to live together,particularly if they have children.But sometime it becomes quite impossible to stay together for different reasons, then divorce is better.If divorced children shoud have the option to choose anyone of them and/or live independently if matured.If choosen to live independently, must maintain contact with the parents and take care of them if needed.

i would never want that to happen first of all. if by chance it happens,i will bring them back together.i love them very much, so it will be my foremost duty to look after their happiness n marriage is not just living together for sometime but its a relationship forever.

Right now I am twenty three and I could see where it would not bother you if your parents divorced,but me and my fiance live with my parents and we are helping them with their bills and stuff,and I think if my parents got a divorce I would be really sad and upset,and I would not know what to think,when I was a kid there were times where I thought they would get a divorce,and I did not know which parent I would want to go with,and almost all of my friends parents are divorced,and I would not be mad at them if they divorced,but I would wonder what happened,since my parents have been married for twenty five years.

My parents actually divorced when I was 10 years old. Sure, at the time I was upset that they were getting divorced, but now I know it was the best thing for them to do. Plus, had they not gotten divorced I never would have met my husband and we wouldn't have 2 beautiful boys together. So everything happens for a reason, at least most of the time.

If they broke up I would be very upset because they are my parents and I want them to be happy. My parents have a very strong marriage and it will be very upsetting if they do break up, but knowing them, they won't.
