My parents divorced when I was young and I was angry at times, but I grew to understand that it was for the best for all three of us. I am so thankful. Both are happily remarried and have been for many years; one for 15 years and the other 20 years. They were able to be more present to me thru my childhood and teen years. Best decision they ever made for me. Finicially and emotionally it was difficult for both of them, however them seperating actually was an act of putting me and my needs first. That's my perspective on it. I have outstanding relationships with both my mother and my father. I never felt abandoned in the process.
