    It seems like every single person I speak to has split parents.

    I'm sick of hearing all this "it's better for the kids if we break up" crap - no it's not you retarded ****. It's better for the kids if you take some responsibility and work out your problems instead of doing the selfish thing and then trying to justify it in the name of your children.

    I'm pretty sure it would be worse if my parents were together.
    My 'father' had no intention of caring for me or my brother, never contributed to our upbringing and was unfaithful and violent to my mother.
    In my opinion my mother took responsibility and realised her problem...him and kicked him out!

    I'm assuming you've had the perfect childhood and don't realise that some problems cannot be resolved!

    I feel while its better that there are 2 parents, sometimes problems within a marriage can be so great that getting divorced may be the only answer. My parents were married for 36 years when my dad died, I"ve been married for almost 14 years and I"m planning on staying that way.

    Although on the flip side, I thought getting married was outdated in todays society?.

    I'm glad I live in a single parent family. My dad was a moron who had no intention of staying around anyway and my subsequent step-dad was an even bigger moron who beat me with a belt. The only problem I really have with my mum on the other hand is that she picks ****** men as partners, who usually **** off anyway once they hear she has a teenage son- some "family commitment" there!

    My parents are divorced and I turned out fine.

    I don't like divorce, but I'd rather my parents be happy apart than miserable together.

    Well you obviously aren't a child of divorce. It you were you'd know it's MUCH BETTER for them to split and be happy.

    **** happens. We don't live in the Victorian era.
    Too many people rush into relationships now, and get married after 1/2 years, which, in my opinion, is an extremely stupid way of attempting to show you've grown up.

    Also, one happy parent is better than two parents who despise each other.

    Oh piss off. My father clearly didnt want to be with my mother otherwise he wouldnt have had a legion of affairs behind her back.
    My grandma left my grandfather when he became a violent abusive drunk. Do you really think children want to see their parents smacking the **** out of each other and screaming until neighbours ring the police because they're worried?

    Sometimes, kids and young adults pray for their parents to divorce. My mum actually begged her mother to leave her father.

    There was some confusion over whether me or my step-sister had stolen 20p's worth of change on the way back from a shop (I lived in a village back then). I didn't say I saw her do it because she was bigger and older than me, and she of course denied it (although didn't directly blame on me), so out of simplicity he beat both of us.

    But I'm a little confused: are you impplying that there's EVER a good reason to beat a small child with a belt??

    not as horrific in having your whole family set up completely destroyed. and besides which not all divorces are because of unhappy couples, nor because the children can see it.

    My parents are not divorced only because of me, Id prefer it if they were divorced, I know how much my mom suffers, and it is also pressure on me, its making me feel like I owe something to them that is causing huge pain to their lives, so no OP, if they dont belong to each other anymore a fake family wouldnt do the children any good; pretending to be still loving each other is a pain
