    Well separated ... But thinking about it.

    . My dad moved out it has been 7 months and I honestly miss when he would come home smelling of Palmolive (he's a mechanic and gets oil all over him) and when he'd come home and complain about a car not working or someone did something wrong. I miss him so much

    The relationship between my parents has been

    pretty tense for the last year or so. My dad is deeply unhappy with his job and life in general, and he takes out his bitterness on my mom and sometimes me. It finally culminated to the point where my mom had an emotional outburst and told my father she wanted to divorce. She...

    It is going to be a long thanksgiving break.

    Sigh. I wish I could just camp out in my room until next Monday. Mom is now trying to use me to get at dad. I can't believe that she is so manipulative.

    They haven't really said anything official yet.

    But my mom wants out. I don't know how to handle this. I always saw their marriage as what I wanted to have. Now my mom's blaming him for dragging her into his unhealthy lifestyle and holding her back from finishing school and accusing him of not caring about her anymore...

    Last sunday, I was told something I did not

    expect from my parents, they were always happy, joking and smiling. But I was called downstairs... They're getting divorced. I instantly began crying. I know it's for the best but that doesn't make it any easier. I've got exams coming up and so they said that they'll stay...

    I expected this years ago. My dad has already had the talk about it with me. And he got really drunk yesterday cuz he's really taking it hard. But my mom is the one who is at fault for the situation. She doesn't appreciate anything my dad does, she always finds a reason to be...

    My parents after 20 miserable years are finally

    getting a divorce. I don't feel bad about the divorce but all the stuff that come with it like visitation or choosing sides really sucks.

    It was only a matter of time.

    They haven't slept in the same room since my mom cheated on my dad, but the bedroom situation wasn't my dad's idea. He even forgave my mom! She must be going through some kind of midlife crisis or something. I feel really bad for my dad.

    My mum and stepdad are getting a divorce.

    I know I don't really talk to my mum much and I hate my stepdad as much as my dad does but I can't help feeling sad. I think it's coz my sister is caught in the middle of it all. It's her and mums fault but to be honest it's better for everyone in the long run.
