I love my parents and I don't want them to be separated. Sure there would be fights among them, but that is what marriage is about. But they still love each other whole-heartedly and I never want them to be apart. I believe my elder brother feels the same way. We are one big happy family, why break apart?

My parents don't actually hate each other, they don't necessarily go goo-goo either. It's obviously love, but I don't think it's the right kind of love. Plus I hate my father. My dad is like the pissiest ass hole ever, he gets pissed off at everything. My mom is always annoyed at him being pissed off for the shittiest things all the time, and he just has no brains whatsoever, and it seems she acknowledges that and isn't much of a fan of it. He tries to give the shittiest moral lessons ever "If you don't cut the grass, you die!" and he thinks just because I don't cut the grass, that I don't know how to do it. I obviously know how to do it, but I'm a sissy. I don't work outside.

My mom has a part-time job, my dad has a full time job. He brings in most the cash, so I'd wish they'd stay together. Until I moved out :).


wow that's exactly what happens to my parents and also i'm in the same situation as u lol i don't hate my father though, but sometimes he really pissed me off -_- i don't think that my parents r going to divorce.. but i think it would b better to see ur parents divorced than 2gether discussing everyday..i guess

stay together. They've been together 36 yrs now, and despite their problems they seem happy together, and I do think that they're IN love. They're not romantic about it, but it is there, and i honestly don't think they could get along without each other. Anyway, its their choice to get divorced or not, and I would never try to make that decision for them or influence them in anyway cuz its their life, I expect them to let me live my life my way so y wouldn't I give them the same courtesy of letting them make their own decisions?

I have parents who detest each other yet stay together for me and my younger brothers. The house is always filled with yelling and fighting and I'm tired of it. My mom always says that shes with him for us[kids]. It kind of makes me feel guilty that she needs to go through such harsh times because of us. I just wish she would divorce him and live a better life. I don't really like my dad and he doesnt treat us like we're his kids. So, if you guys are in a similar situation, or used to be, what do you think? Do you[or did you] want your parents to stay together? or seperate?

Some kids would rather their parents stay together because no kid wants to choose between their mom or dad..but I just want to know some opinions and personal stories so i know i'm not alone out here...^^;;

[i already checked if there was a forum like this and couldnt find one, if someone sees one like this--please tell me]


You said in another post that your parents kind of use your siblings and you against each other. You should frankly speak to both your parents and tell them of what they and doing and that its breaking the family apart even more. They may not have realised what they are subconciously doing.
Try having a session with you parents (and your siblings if they are old enough). Take time to talk and discuss about the issues that are leading to the quarrels and such. Share your view on how he has been treating you, try to be really factual and ignore your pride. You are NOT a coward or emotional when you tell them how you really feel, whether you are hurt, feeling neglected or such.

It is NOT impossible to improve your family situation.

Dads in this age mostly seem to be more distant from their children due to work and such. Try spending more time with him, perhaps by offering engage in his favorite activities with him.

Perhaps divorce seems like the best or easiest option at first but it may bring more hurts later on. But then again every situation is different and i can only give my opinion. There are so many more ways you can remedy this situation so don't give up the hope of having a happy family. You can do it!! lol okay i'm sounding gay...

And ya, don't take my advice for professional advice, seeking professional help is always the best option. Good Luck. i hope i helped even the slightest bit.

Well, my parents are still in love (after 16 years of being with each other *rolls eyes*) Of course, like any other couple they would fight, they would argue and they would make up.

I remember a few times when it got out of hand, i was so sacred i went to the master room and locked my self away from them. my mom was throwing stuff at my dad, and my dad just stand there and get hit and "talk" back. (Yeah, my dad love my mom more than my mom love my dad, so therefore my dad is very careful with my mother, he lets my mom do anything she wants, yes i have a great dad. he's an idiot sometimes though.)

so...why would i want my parents to get divorced? Well, at times when i hate them, like when they're arguing/fighting with each other - perhaps. but normally no. And if they were to get divorced i'm staying with my mother. I know that a long time ago, and i'm sticking to that choice.

Well I don't even understand why my parents are together in the first place. And I wonder everyday why they are even together. They seem to fight all the time, and they curse at each other too. It's odd. They always treaten to divorce too...and i wonder why they never do. They don't kiss/hold hands. It's wierd that their a couple...i've never seen them romantic with each other...at all. no compliments, etc...

sooo yeah i wish they got a divorce..but then i guess it wouldn't be the same, because after all their both still my birth parents
