yes, my parents are divorcing now (49 & 53) and im almost 20. imo, it would have been easier if i were younger i think. this is very painful for me to watch but i understand why its happening, but its very ugly and my home is very turbulent. if anyone is thinking about staying for the kids, dont. it really doesnt help us out at all.

my father and my step mother got seperated (dad left that house with my little sister) 3 months before my little sisters graduation, my dad was on match.com and had a new girlfriend a week after he moved out. they "unofficially" called it quits years ago, but was still fcuking every once in a while.

A lot of women consider time an investment too big to walk away from.
I disagree because it's that sunk cost bias.

TBH, my parents should have been divorced a long time ago.
At the time of my mother's death, they had been married 40 years. I sensed my mom's unhappiness but she said she stayed for me. My sister and I had a big age gap so my sister was grown and off to college long before I finished elementary school. My parents had been separated for the past 5 years I think even though my dad would still come around. It was when I was older when I found out the cause of my mother's unhappiness. She never talked bad upon my dad.

Even though my dad spoiled us rotten, I still resent him for how he treated my mother. She didn't deserve that and he doesn't deserve to be the survivng spouse right now.

Lesson is, kids sense things and staying for them and ignoring your own happiness does not always work.

My sister and her ex-husband divorced after their daughters graduated from college and moved out of the house. She was 51 and he was 57, and their kids were all in their 20s.

They're great friends now. They are together all the time. She was at my house last night and he was, too. For whatever reason, they're happier together now than they ever were when they were married. Actually, he asked me a few weeks ago what I thought about them getting re-married Disapprove

But I can understand why people do it. It makes more sense to divorce after the children are own their own then when they are most vulnerable.
