Did your parents get divorced when you were an adult?
Yes much worse when you r older. Than your parents think they can confide in u. I had a really hard time with it and I was 22.
Im 22 and my parents divorced a year ago. I think its harder for adults because you get to where you think ok my parents made it theyll be together my kids will have their grandparents together and then bam just like that everything you thought would be just changes its hard to adjust too
My parents divorced just this last febraury. They were married for 33 years. I was completely devastated. My dad told me he was probably gonna leave my mom Christmas Eve. I cried an entire day after he announced it to the whole family.
Im 23 years old and my parents jus got divorced in april and it turned my whole world upside down. However it was some what for the good but also some bad.
It's worse as an adult. I'm 21 and my parents got divorced a year ago. All holiday traditions that you grew up with start to diminish. It's moRe of a hassle to try and visit each parent equally. Not to mention my wedding and college graduations are awkward
I am 32 and my parents just got a divorce this January after 36 years of marriage. My mom pretty much just walked out on my dad. It has totally rocked the foundations of our lives. I have 2 younger brothers and they are having a really hard time. To make matters worse, she just announced that she is getting married again to a guy she barely knows.
Found out right after my daughter was born that my parents were divorcing because my dad had been having a 13 year long affair with someone just a few
years older than me. They r now married. Totally screwed with my brain!
My parents got divorced when I was 1 was nothing to me. But when my mom and step dad divorced @23 it made me question everything @27 it still affects my life.
was in my 20's when my parents divorced. I was going through my own marital problems so knowing how hard I was trying for marriage I was devastating that they gave up
My grandparents got divorced after 60 years of marriage
After 50+ years of marriage, my dad's parents divorced.
I was 20... Wish they would have done it when I was 3! I understood more at 20 and my dads GF was 18. Eww!
I'm 22 and last year I called off my own engagement. My mom said since I did it, I gave her the strength to divorce my dad of 17 years. It was very hard on everyone
My parents divorced the week that i got married. my mom had moved out, all the fam from out of state had come into town and was like "wheres your mom?" They did both pose for all the family pics and it was so awkward- the photographer was like "put your arm around your lovely wife", it was horrible. When i got home from my honeymoon my mom was in the family home with her new bf and his 10 yr old daughter was moved in my room. its true what they say, you can never go home- it was so sad. its been many years and all is ok now, they are happier and better people apart!
My parents just got divorced i'm twenty. My dad has multiple sclerosis and had to go to nursing home
I was 21 and everybody expects you to handle it as an adult but you grieve like a child and step parents are a nightmare and expect you to pretend a bunch of strangers as family now
friend of mines parents got divorced when she was 24. They were very strong Christians and when he broke the news it was because he was leaving his wife and five other kids for another woman. He moved the new one into the family home and started another family. My friend was devastated and 10 years later he has nothing to do with them. So sad
I'm 26, they just signed the papers, but have been separated for a couple years. I wish they would have done it years ago, they never slept in the same bed growing up. Its worse growing up knowing your parents don't like each other. I wish they could have been happy with other people sooner
My parents told me they were getting divorced the day I graduated college. I was devastated at 1st, but now I have a better relationship with both.
My mom just announced she wants to divorce my dad this weekend. I'm 22 and I'm taking it harder than I thought. I've never seen my 19 yr old brother so upset. Even though we knew it was going to happen at some point. I'm just worried about my two little siblings.
My parents told us that they were getting divorced 3 days after I got engaged! I was pretty surprised they still stood through my line but it was pretty awkward!
I was 24 when my parents divorces after 37 years. It was horrible and still is hard. Michelle
I was 31 and thought about damn time! They made is miserable all our lives!
I'm 21 and after 45 yrs of marriage my grandparents are getting divorced. They've had 9 kids together
Its worse cuz when you spend time with either of em they think You're takin sides and when you say ANYTHING about the other parent they turn your words around as use it as ammo against the other like - well so and so said that you said this about you and blah blah blah.....it sucks
I'm 32 and my parents divorced after 32 years of marriage my dad cheated on my mom the whole marriage, and to make it worse my mom is sneaking around with my dad and I am the only person she will tell my sister and brother are clueless my husband thinks my family is nuts and that we need help
I'm 34. My ex husbands parents got divorced after 30 years of marriage. I was married 12 years. we took his dad in and took care of him but in the process it ruined my marriage because we were constantly taking care of him and his needs. It effects more people then anyone thinks when your an adult.
