When EX and I separated and divorced, we were one of the few sets of divorced parents.
Now that DS13 is in 8th grade, I just heard about several divorces underway.
Do parents tend to wait until their children are "older"?
I am a bit heart-broken over one of them. It looks like my friend cheated on her husband and moved out. I idolized their marriage. He is such an involved father, I was in awe of how lucky she had it. Apparently, she wasn't feeling very lucky at all.
It's so sad to me. I guess deep down, I am a romantic that wants to believe that the ideal of mom, dad, and kids can all be happy.
