After 35 or so years of being together.
I saw this coming since the beginning of the year
I'm sorry....but don't make this about you. Think about how much happier they will hopefully be.
sucks man, atleast it's now and not when you were 7 though. Got any younger siblings that are more likely to be affected?
Boy you are right. The way his parents getting a divorce makes him feel - that's bullshit. He isn't entitled to those feelings.
Nope not entitled at all.
It sucks, I said I'm sorry. Obviously divorce isn't fun for anyone....I'm trying to look past that though, I think of the positives. Hell, my parents have been married over 30 years, but if they told me tomorrow they were getting a divorce I'd be shocked but at least hopeful that they would be happier.
No I don't have any younger siblings, which is a good thing.
Theres alot more behind it, which I really don't feel like talking about. But I do think that this is better off.
That's good (about not having younger siblings). How old are you BTW?
27, and before you guys ask, no I do NOT live at home
Oh ok. Yeah, the older I get the more I come to grips with the fact that divorce is so prominent. Not that I don't believe people can make it a lifetime together, just after a certain age I started to think "well shit, if they aren't happy then they shouldnt be together." Either way, I know it's still probably shocking and a little scary to think about how your family dynamic will turn out.
Does it at least seem to be a subtle divorce? Or do they loathe each other? The latter is obviously a worse case scenario.
Ouch. Sorry to hear that. I think the only way my parents divorce would bother me is if it was nasty and they were the kind that never wanted to see each other again, or demanded you choose sides.
ya, it just sucks to see them together for 35 years or so then separate. My mother is going to have it hard since she really doesn't know how to do normal things, IE pay bills, contacts, etc.

at least you're of an age that you'll be able to help with some of the stuff like bills. I've never had to go through this but seen friends go through this to know that it will probably be tough but with close mates to help you everything will work out in the end.
Sorry to hear that!! I've been through it, my parents got divorced a few years ago...it definitely isnt fun.
