Oh I didn't know that. I thought most people got divorced when their kids were under the age of ten. I thought by the time they were grown they would have learned to live with each other. Unless something major happens like a public affair or an outside child.

I don't think people want to share custody, be a weekend/every other week parent; so they wait.

You mean if it were your parents? Or you mean it wouldn't matter how long you've been together if you felt a need to divorce?

EDIT: o i c
I don't know I think I would not care if my parents were married and decided to get a divorce. But then again most of my family all have fail marriages.

Most people wait until there children were older that what my grandma did with my granpapa. She even made a room for him until the divorce was final.

Yep.  That's what I did.  It wasn't easy, but you realize that life is too short to be unhappy for what little time you have left.  My daughter was 17.  She was fine, actually happier not to have to be in a house filled with tension all the time.  She lived with me 4 days and him 3 each week.  She came out ahead, cause she had 2 of everything.  We were married 24 years.  Life is just too short to be unhappy.  For whatever reason.

My parents officially divorced like 3-4 yrs ago (mind you I just turned 30) however they've been "separated" since I was in single digit years.

They stayed legally married bc neither one really seemed terribly motivated to seal the deal and my dad wasn't one to contest visitations, etc. Ehhh, by the time my parents finally divorced...no one even cared, they'd been apart for so long anyway.
