i was watching LIFE IS A HOUSE, starting Kevin Kline (George) and Kristin Scott Thomas (Robin), they are separated already on the story and Robin has her own family already. Hayden Christensen (Sam) is Goerge and Robin's son. when ever he sees his parents talking he is still hoping for them to get together. there was a scene there when George and Robin was kissing and Sam saw then and you can see the smile in his face. he looks happy. and because of that i wonder if kids from separated parents still wanted to see their parents together?

Hi Roni! I believe that kids of spearated parents do feel happy, when they see their parents together. Every child wants the protection of his parents and a family is incomplete with both mother and father.

you havea good point, but what about my children do you think they feel the same way? we left my husband their dad 9 years ago, he was a very abusive man and beats us as well. i stayed long as i could and when it was too much i packed my bag tagged my kids along and left him. i sometimes ask them if they wantto see their dad and they just said we are at peace already mom dont do something that might start an old story. so i think they dont care anymore.

Hi Roni! I made a generalised comment. I am really sorry to know that you left your hubby many years ago due to his bad behaviour. It is you who have single handedly managed the affairs and brought up your kids. In your case your kids found both their mother and father in YOU, therefore, it seems to me that they do not want to meet their father.

I have not seen that movie... and i really like Hayden Christensen as an actor... but going back to your topic... i was reminded of the time when Martin Nievera created a controversy when he said in one of his concerts (where his father and his fiancee were watching) that he still wish or wants his parent to get back together... well, that made Bert Nievera angry and did not talk to his son for a long time... Parents... no matter how long they have been separated or even if they have their own families... their kids would always wish that they will get back together someday... and they would be one big happy family...

ouch. lol. that is very humiliating. i understand the fathers side, but like all we know martin has a big mouth. he says what he feels even without thinking. its okay if a child feels like that but saying it in front of a lot of people, and his dad might even had a date for that show it would really be very humiliating. thanks for the response

yes its true for those kids, who got love from both of their mom and dad before their separation , but i think if the kids knew every thing about the reason behind that separation then those kids will not bother or wish about their parents to get together , what do you think ?

you have a good point. i am separated from my husband for 9 years or so. and we didnt have a good life with him. he is abusive to me and our children. so maybe thats the reason why they are not interested on their fathers whereabouts. they didnt get love and respect from him. thanks for the response rosy have a great weekend

i came from a broken family, grew up without a father. i can never really remember anything where we were once a family. all i can remember is that me and my mom, just the two of us and then later on, she took my other two siblings and there were four us, me, my mom and my two little sisters. there were times in my childhood that i had wanted my parents to get back together, it was not something about the emotional part, but it was more like the financial part. our lives would have been easier had my dad was with us and he was the one earning for the family... as an eldest child i was the one where my mom could depend on to help her in everything.

very good point and response jay. i think some children have theor own reasons why they wanted theor parents to get together. some if for financial reasons like yours, some maybe because they wanted to feel complete and some because they think that it is happy or good fro their parents. thanks for the response

I think that deep down kids would want this and especially if they see hope such as the parents kissing and what not.
