Thaief Ahmed January 2, 2018 divorce rate is so high it is because ppl r over sensitive Kristen Ford January 2, 2018 my parents divorced when i was 11 i believe. My dads side and moms side always had christmas time at the exact same time. So there really was no difference, except that my dad and mom now blame eachother for having the parties at the same time as eachother. I try to go to both because they are half an hour away from eachother. I also get less presents and now my dad thinks that buying my medicines and wrist bands for carpal tunnel and for my foot for always being on my feet, is a gift from him, not to help me for my well being, when before divorce, he only wanted the best for me. My dad also has another wife so he has to go to their parties (i dont really associate with his wife but the casual conversation at get togethers at holidays because im not a mean person and dont want to be mean to others no matter what happened, but my mom wants me to be mean or not talk to her, my dad wants me to hang out and be friends with his current wife. as a compromise, i dont hang out or talk much to her, but am cordial at least).My boyfriends grandparents are also divorced (they have the party), but its convientent because one does it the saturday before and the other does it christmas eve, so the rest of the family can spend time at home with their immediate family and not go anywhere on christmas day but spend time together. So i have 4 Christmases. Milky Cake January 2, 2018 Thanks for that reminder… sophie steele January 2, 2018 The worst part for me when I was a teenager was knowing one of my parents would be alone on Christmas Eve. Sklacki 36 January 2, 2018 My parents got separated when I was 10 because my mom cheated. My dad found the text messages on his birthday and confronted my mom about it right outside my door when he thought I was asleep, but unfortunately, I wasn't. I heard the whole conversation and couldn't get it off my mind. And to make that year even worse, my dog died a month later. My mom got engaged a year later on her birthday and got pregnant a few months later, which forced my dad to start smoking again. Leah January 2, 2018 I haven't even thought about Christmas when I'm older with divorced parents Sean Rovins January 2, 2018 My parents are divorced but ones Christian and the others Jewish so holidays aren’t usually difficult.

Eva Chavez January 2, 2018 3:18 Me: I HAVE NO SIBLINGS sebalishious January 2, 2018 My parents divorced when I was 9 and I had to stay with my dad because he had more money. But then he couldn’t handle me and my brother till he got so stressed he told me to pack my bags and literally leave. I had to find a way to contact my mom where now I live with her. So yeah it’s really sucks The Closet January 2, 2018 My parents have been separated since I was 5, they still haven’t gotten a divorce though. My mom had an affair, my dad, the sweetest man in the world, found out. My mom had kept a journal of her affair and said she never felt that way before. One night my parents were fighting in the kitchen when I stepped in the middle of them. After that my dad moved into his studio which wasn’t finished. One day my mom made me pack a bible, some clothes, and a sleeping bag. We stayed at my sister’s house, she was in college staying at HER dad’s house. I left all my personal things at the house I had lived in for most of my life. I hardly have any memories from then, I blocked most out. But my life would probably be miserable if they didn’t separate. If you got this far, thank you for listening, it doesn’t happen often. You can vent too, I’ll read it.
