One parent shares the reality of divorce! When there is parental conflict the child suffers! When parents are unable to maintain a cordial relationship, the child goes without. The reality is that when parents expose their kids to a lot of mudslinging and bad behavior, the child suffers.
Divorce causes a fault line in families. I have had the misfortune to witness it twice at close range although my parents have never divorced and I have never married!
My current partner and my ex were both married with kids. The sad thing in both cases is the mothers wanted the kids to side with them and used them as pawns which damaged them irreparably. Things were never the same and never healed.
Kids are lied to, manipulated and led to believe their fathers are the worst thing on this earth which is not the case!
