Ah man, really sorry to hear that. Parental splits are never easy, even if they seem like they are way overdue. I've been through two of them, myself. If ya need someone to talk to / shout at, PM me.

screw off with that "at least you aren't in Kenya" nonsense. We get it, life sucks in other places of the world.

My parent's got divorced when I was 4.

Not really that big of a deal. I get to see them both frequently, and they don't fight.

They never DID fight, they just got divorced because they had a kid when my mom was 14 and my dad was 16 (my sister) and they never really loved each other that much.

What I'm getting at is, it's not the end of the world. And if they got divorced from fighting, then the upside is they won't fight anymore.

Divorce carries all sorts of negative associations, but that doesn't mean your situation will be tough. It may suck, but if you keep moving forward you'll be thru it before you know it.
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

Sorry to hear that TS. I've never had to go through that ordeal, but I can't imagine having too. Like everyone else is saying, just look on the bright side. They won't fight anymore.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Why does this come as a surprise to some people? If your parents fight alot more than a normal couple chances are they aren't meant for each other.

Hell, I'm the one who suggested my parents get a divorce.
#13
sorry about that man. divorces mind**** the younger kids. i mean when you're older it still sux but not really as much of a mind**** cuz you know more about the stuff that's going on. my parents fight every few days and all but doesn't bother me.
TOMAHAWK!

I've been through 2 and all I can say is life goes on, you'll learn to deal with it, but its still a bitch to think about.

My condolences to you and your family

By the way, the reason your parents are getting a divorce is most likely to make things better. No one would make a decision if they thought it was going to have a lot of negative consequences. I'm sure your parents are keeping you in mind, and speak up if you think they aren't. They are, for the most part, responsible for your security at this point in life, so I would come to believe that they are making this decision to make your life better as well.

Would you rather live in a household with two parents who don't want to married to each other? I would find that maddening, especially if they couldn't get thru the day without fighting.

i know how it goes. it sucks. sorry to hear that.
See above post ^

I feel ya mate, my parents are also currently splitting up.
It ended abruptly, they always fought but my dad took it too far, i got involved physically, and now were in a huge mess.

Divorces suck man.

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

life could indeed get worse:




my parents got divorced when i was around 13. it wasn't that bad. It sucks a lot at the beginning, but soon you find out that it really isn't as horrible and life wrecking as hollywood says. your parents still love you, they just don't live in the same house anymore.

Shock value. It doesn't get the point across, just makes people feel guilty. Don't make TS guilt himself into the illusion of a happy life, its only making things worse.

Make them compete for your love with cool stuff.

TS: "Mom, can you buy me a new guitar?"

"No."

TS: "Meh, I always loved Dad better."

mine split last year, and the divorce is being finalized now. I'm moving into a smaller house, and keep getting sent between home and a small apartment (my dads). It sucks, but life goes on. I'm off to college soon, and i hope not to move back in, if at all, with either parent.

Shinysides, I expected better from you. I dislike when people post those pictures, because you're using these poor people as a way of making someone feel bad. TS is sad. Granted, his problems probably don't compare to ^^^'s but you shouldn't use a picture like that just to cast a comparison on someone's problems. It's disrespectful to both TS and the poor child.
