Do you come from a split family?

A split family could be child(ren) of divorced parents, a person that married more than once, families that have step or half siblings, or heck it could even be like the Maury Povich Show where the man or woman has several kids with different partners. My parents divorced when I was just 10 years old (after a 20 year marriage). Both my parents remarried and I have step siblings on both sides. My husband's dad was married once before and has 2 kids from that marriage, so my husband has 2 half siblings.

Holidays aren't that bad. I have however had a hard time putting together a family tree. With steps, halves, and full blood relatives it is quite a challenge!

My family is such a mess! My parents divorced when i was five. My dad remarried three years later, to this horrible horrible woman, and they had three kids together. Their marriage, naturaly, failed, on account of her being the worst person in the world. My Dad moved to indonesia, and left the kids with my ex-step mother and her idiotic new boyfriend. Which was really terrible, because she's a shockingly bad parent. I can't look after them becuase im an unemployed 12 year old living with my own mum and about to start university, and my Dad seems to think they need the extra money he can send them from working in indonesia were he has a good job than the be a proper parent for them. And he's too busy to take care of them. Now, a couple of weeks ago, my step mother moved to singapore, taking my siblings with her! so it might be years before i can even see them again, and noody is happy about it!

LOL - I am an only child with 15 younger brothers and sisters. 4 half sisters, 4 half brothers, 1 step sister, 4 step brothers, and 2 adopted sisters (who are younger than 3 of my children). I love each one of them and never except for here refer to them as anything but my brothers and sisters.
