Agreed with #3. My mom has once said that to me before too, but I have my utmost respect for her to try keeping the marriage together for my autistic brother's sake. My dad sure isn't the most sensitive guy out there, and I myself isn't in a good relationship with my dad either. But kudos to my dad for sticking around and paying for my brother's needs too, I suppose. I guess both of them are much better than those parents who dumps their mentally-challenged kids to the government.

#3, it's not all that mature. If you're marital problems are really bad, IMO it's better for the kids to get a divorce.

I don't think it's mature at all; it's more like being unable to go through the motions and admit you made a mistake. My parents got divorced a long time ago and I got over it pretty quickly. I don't know anyone whose parents got divorced who are really messed up because of it. I do know a lot of people whose parents are in bad marriages who lead really messed up lives.

of course it's a better idea to split up if there's hostility, but couples aren't always hostile. my friends parents divorced because they fell out of love. they coulda tried to make it work.

I don't know, my friend's parents got a divorce and it messed her up. It made her more angry and she never really gets off the computer. Her little brother, who used to be a sweet kid, is now a skater punk. But I think it's that problem: their parents were very religious and they went to a church that believed that divorce was an abomination. They didn't argue or have any problems in front of their kids, so the kids thought their parents were getting along. The divorce just broke any optimism

It's not your fault. I've been in that situation before my parents were divorced. She's not actually blaming you for the problems, she's just frustrated.

Dear lord, how you have thought she was blaming her problems on you?? Her English was simple enough. What she was saying was that the reason the marriage still existed was because of you, that she cared enough about you that she didn't want a divorce. I agree with #10 that your mother telling you that you were the only thing keeping the marriage from falling apart wasn't the greatest thing to do. That's pretty much saying that she would otherwise divorce your father. My mom told me that my pa
