Thanks for sharing your perspective and I am so glad to hear that you were able to get ahold of your life and pull it back together. The teenage years are difficult anyway, let alone to have to go through the trauma of your parents getting divorced and turning your whole world upside down. It's also really difficult for parents who are miserable together and try everything to make the relationship work for the sake of their kids only to have it fall apart anyway. Divorce is a last resort but sometimes it's the best of a bad situation, but obviously there are ramifications from staying together in a bad marriage and also from getting divorced. It's hard enough to go through it as a parent, let alone try to explain the magnitude and gravity of relationship issues to your children, no matter what age they are, and then to try to do that without defaming the other parent is next to impossible. I am a divorced parent with an 11-year-old who has "issues" as a result. Is there any advice from your divorced parents that you would have accepted to choose a different path from the start? I'll go through whatever I have to with my daughter and love her anyway, but of course I'd rather avoid the path that she is starting to go down now. So many people don't come out of it like you did.
