I've never experienced divorce firsthand, and I sure hope I never do. My father died last January, but I guess it's possible that my mom could re-marry and un-marry. That would be a lot different than your mom and dad divorcing, though. Anyway, I've never experienced divorce, but I've witnessed it. One of my friend's parents got divorced when she was 8 or so, and I guess it's been about 5 years or so, and I just recently found out that one of my other friend's parents are divorced. It's the second friend I've been thinking about. I've been thinking about her all night. I really feel like it's hurting me. I can't quite explain it. I just love her so much. I feel really bad about it. I wish I could fix it for them. Just yesterday she was telling me it was worse when she was younger, but she's learned to deal with it now. It really upsets me that she has to say something like that. I just wish people didn't jump into marriage so hastily. I know that in both of these cases, no abuse or anything was going on. It was definitely a case of, "I don't love you anymore." in the first one, and for the second friend, I'm not positive, but I feel sure nothing like that was happening. My friend's so selfless. She's always worried about me. When we hung out a few days ago, she kept asking me if I was alright, how I was holding up, how things were going.....she always wants to help. She's so loving. I just wish I could wave a magic wand and give her the perfect like it feels like she ought to have. Sadly, that's not even close to reality. I know I can't do that.
