| | Re: Will divorce hurt my kids and was my wife chatting with an OM?
When I was 12 years old (my sister was 10) my parents Divorced. The root reason was because of money. My mom took my sister and I and left New York and headed for Atlanta.
For the first three years of the divorce, my sister and I (especially my sister since she's the daddy's girl, and my dad sent us copies of the paper to show that it was our mother that filled. So my sister gave our mom extra "hell" because of her actions), tried to bring our parents back together. Of course, our efforts were pointless.
We went through a depression, our grades suffered, my sister got into some fights and I started shutting my mother out.
Fast forward 16 years after the divorce,my sister and I "got over it". But because of our parents divorce, my sister is afraid to 'let a man "run" her life". Because of the divorce, I take my lazy wife's crap and affair because I didn't want to put my two young girls through what I went through.
So use my example to make up your mind.
Divorce made my sister and I grow up really fast. But it also gave us lasting "mental" damage. I know what it's like to be a "statistic, I grew up in a single parent home". But at the same time, I'm now married with two girls and I know first hand what divorce can do to a child. so that means, no matter what crap my wife throws my way,...I'm forcing myself to take it because of my girls. Even if that means being miserable for the rest of my life.
Have a nice day.
P.S. Both my parents ended up with multiple disastrous relationships after their divorce. Each relationship being worse than the previous. Which made my dad say one time "Damn, I thought your mom was bad, but she's nowhere near these stupid-self centered-Gold diggin'-female dogs out in the world now a days".
