I Am A Child Of Divorced Parents

    The divorce is over but custody battles are

    approaching quickly. I resent my mother and plan on living with my father. I'm often worried to talk about why I resent my mother because I know others have it much worse. With even some not having a mother or a home at all. I'm lucky, I know.

    year when I was 20. They were married for 25 years before my dad pulled the idiot card one night. He got drunk and accused my mom of having an affair which she wasn't. She had always been faithful to my dad. So anyway he got drunk and pulled a loaded glock 45 on he. He didn...

    Have you ever lost someone,

    where they haven't died, but it feels like they have. You've known them your whole life, but one day they just completely changed & now you can't even recognise them anymore. Having to try your hardest to pretend this other person is them, that's more heartbreaking than any...

    I would like to explain my situation

    but it would be even more helpful if children of divorced parents can give their input. I will give the facts as the children know and be honest and not explain the underlining issues because the kids not know about them, and I need an honest answer from a child's prospective...

    to this song all the time when I was little. I had always wished my family could just pretend to get along... I realize now it would have never worked. All I want is for my parents to be happy... I just wished they hadn't put me through 15 years of hell before deciding to end...

    Help Please, I Need Opinions

    My mom and my dad are always having me in the middle of everything. It's difficult having to basically choose a side. I used to talk with my dad everyday (over the phone) but my mom would always be mad and gave me a speech after I talked to him and while I was talking to him she...
