Parents might get a divorce
    #2602374 - 04/25/04 10:12 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

My mom told me today that she and my dad have been going to marriage counseling and that there's a possibility that they might get a divorce. It still hasn't sunken in yet. They've managed to make it for 25 years, and now it might end. I'm starting to lose all faith in the very institution of marriage. I was always able to point to my parents as a married couple that made it, but soon that might not be the case. I've seen them fight many times, but I figured that's just a normal part of marriage. They're still trying to work it out and hope to God that they do, but I'm just so scared that they won't.

This is normal for every American kid. A rite of passage, if you will

Just remember that millions of kids have gone through the same thing

I'm just not one of them

Life happens.

My parents are divorced... it's extremely rare that traditional Chinese parents get a divorce, but it happened. I don't like my father.

That's rough.  :frown:  The good thing is that they're trying to work it out and from the sound of it, they want to try to find a solution for their marriage by going to counseling.  One of my friends parents were on the brink of a nasty divorce, but they went to counseling and discovered that they truly did still love one another and that they were going to hang in there.  By all reports from my friend, marriage counseling worked very well for them.  There is no reason why it can't do the same for your parents if both of them are willing to make a committment to it.  Just try and remember that there is hope, and that no matter what happens, both of them will never stop loving you.  :heart:

hope it works out


truly,


*me*

Hope for the counselling.

Yeah, I know how you feel. But don't let it shake your faith in the concept of marriage itself -- although I ~do~ understand how it might make you feel that way.
It's something that has to be worked upon, and like all relationships, I try to look at them not as "this is a relationship that failed" but rather as "this relationship succeeded for ~this~ long" but then it was time to move on.

Best of luck and hope, man. And hoping for the best for your parents as well.
(sigh, this is some place that MDMA counselling could often help)

i dont know man i understand where they are coming from. Do you got younger brothers or sisters. i totally see my parents divorcing when all the kids are outta the house. after 20+ years of being with the same person stuff kinda tends to get old. they are probally looking for a change and to have fun as they get older and closer to death.

Keeping hoping for the best, atleast they're trying to work it out. Even if it doesn't it doesn't mean your marriage wont work tho....and even if your parents do get divorced its not as bad as you're probably thinking, always look at the bright side!

be happy your parents did the right thing and tried and managed until yuo were grown up.  Obviously they thought of you (and any brothers/sisters) if they are waiting until now to discuss such things.

They are just people like you and me.  Sometimes things just dont work out or are not the same.  My mom recently brought up a similar subject about her and my dads relationship.  I cant picture them NOT together.

So far they have stuck it out and always manage to find ways to remind themselves why they still love each other.. but not everone is able to do that.

Just respect them as your parents now that you dont need them to survive anymore and let them do their own thing.

:smile:

*hugs* I'm sorry! I'll pray for you and your family.

But yes... don't let whatever happens keep you from believing that you can have a loving relationship forever.

always in love
