MOM STAY WITH DAD 3.11.13
Some kids want mom to get back together with their dad. Remember I was a bratty child whose parents were going through a divorce. When my mom told us, we were going to get a divorce I wondered why wasn’t I sad. My house was the Mexican Brady Bunch.
Mom was home cooking up a storm, my pap came home with his lunch box full of treats, no arguing, he would build things. I thought life was perfect, our house was the best, after the divorce poverty hit pretty bad. The perfect marriage died or maybe never was, I was a kid, they didn’t show it maybe. I wish they would have stayed together.
So when my loveless marriage wasn’t working, I didn’t want the same for my kids, I did everything I could to save my marriage. I was trying to save “my” childhood. At one point we did separate and my daughter came to me and upset told me that she was the only one in her class that parents were going through a divorce. That hit me hard. I have to save this marriage and I went back to my horrid marriage.
Now as adults my children tell me they wished that I would have left years ago so they wouldn’t have went through so much. Let me tell you, my kids went through a lot. I should have left sooner.
Children want their parents to live happily ever after but do they know everything, hopefully you have sheltered them from the adult problems.
As adults they will understand and they won’t come to you and say, why didn’t you leave sooner. It is better to live in a functional single parent home, than a two parent dysfunctional home….
