What is it like to have your parents divorce when you are an adult?
tynamite's avatar I knew my Dad was going to leave my Mum 2 years before he did. The whole 25 year relationship was a farce, and I figured that out 2 years before I thought that.

It's good that he left, because it means he can be happier and stop living a lie.
In fact I was telling my Mum to leave him, and she didn't listen. Love is blind.

How did I feel? I didn't feel heartbroken like a little child would. Parents leave each other all the time. Why should I be upset about it? If I want to see him, I can ring him or go to his house.

Why should I hate my parents for the decisions they made, if they never had a choice in it? I feel sorry for my Dad. He's been sad his whole life, and has never had a relationship with anyone in his whole life, not even his parents.

I don't see what the big deal is. It's not like any of my parents are gone from my life any more now. They're as much there, as they always was. My Dad isn't in my life was, and he never was when he lived in the house. So what's the problem?

Both my parents are happier now, so I can't hate them for that. That would be just selfish. Children don't have the maturity to understand that. All they think about is what they want, and how they want their parents in the house. How their parents feel go out the window.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
