- Wedding: October 2015 - Marquee - Private Property
Bit of a sad post for me – my parents split up this weekend.
Obviously I am an adult, so I didn’t expect it to hit me too badly. <br />Unfortunately it has – I am so sad about it :(.
I think when you reach adulthood and your parents are still together it’s just normal, so it’s kind of unimaginable to see them apart.
I definitely feel like it’s hitting a little harder because I’m getting married this year. I’m trying to take it as a not-so-gentle reminder to never take my partner for granted and to always keep working on our marriage.
I think I’ll be having a wine (or 5) tonight.

So sorry you are going through this. I’ve been through something similar my last year of high school so I feel for you. Just know that everything works out in the end and that you’ll be alright. Sending you positivity and good thoughts.

I am so sorry. My parents split after 25 years and I took it very hard too. I don’t have any advice other than don’t pick a side and try not to find out what went wrong. You don’t want to be jaded by either parent. Love them each as a single person and also love them as your parents. My parents were always a team when it came to something that affected myself or my siblings. Hopefully yours can do the same. Hugs to you.

im really sorry to hear that. My parents briefly split up too, but were able to work it out.
The only way i got through it was to realize that this was a decision made by two adults and they both deserve to be happy. If this is what will make them happy all you can do is support them and be there for both of them. You have to try to make it not about you no matter how hard or emotional it gets for you. ::hugs:: you enjoy every last sip of that wine and cry it out if you need to.

I’m so sorry 🙁 I’m a few months down the road from where you’re at right now… All I can say is that I hope for the sake of your sanity that their divorce goes as well as it can and that I hope you have no siblings left at home. I moved away from home about 2 1/2 years ago and wasn’t necessarily super close with my parents but their divorce has hit me pretty hard.

I understand exactly what you are going through. I am engaged to be married in May of 2016 and I received a call from my Mom last week. She told me that she was going to be leaving my father and separating from him for at least year maybe longer. They have been married 45 years. I am 38 and getting married for the first time, just in case your are doing the math on that. Anyways, I feel you it, hurts because they have been my example. I always thought if my parents can stay togther so long, so can I. I am also worried about drama during my engagement/wedding. I jjust want eveyone to be happy. I will say that I also want them to be happy and in the end they are doing a pretty good job of not involving me in their prroblems and at the same time doing what is best for themselves. I hope my parents can work things out and I hope yours will too; I guess we can only hope for the best. Congrats on your engagement and future marriage.

So sorry, my parents split when I was in second year university. Try to be supportive of both, I’m sure they will both be going through a lot of tough stuff emotionally. Best of luck <3
