Today, I found out my parents only had me in an attempt to fix their relationship. It didn't work. FML

Why couples think this is ever a good idea is beyond me. A baby won't fix a broken relationship.

Some relationships just weren't meant to be. They tried their hardest and things didn't work out. It doesn't mean they love you any less OP. They probably consider you to be the best thing to have come from their marriage

At least you were born for a reason. Feel better op

I'm pretty sure that will not make the op feel better.

Too bad that reason wasn't that his parents wanted a child.

I wish more people knew this.

The idea is that a child will help a couple become close to one another but in reality it just pushes them further apart.

its a old thing people use to think would work. i mean look at the cartoons like family guy. maybe back in the day people use to come together for a child but these days, a whole different story

I've always been told a baby magnifies whatever your relationship is. If you're having problems, a baby will make them worse. If you're really close and communicate well, a baby will bring you closer.

Better than not being born at all. Now make the best out of it, OP.

You wouldn't know if you were born so it doesn't affect you

Glad someone found the silver lining in this.

This is quite common actually in some parts around the world. Don't blame yourself for not fixing their relationship and realise it has nothing to do with you. Also, don't get mad at them for wanting you for that purpose because either way you're you now. If you are happy with your relationship with each parent as an individual the rest is not so important. You are totally fine try not to overthink this OP!

I'm pretty sure that's better than the alternative that would have resulted in you never being born.

Not being born doesn't negatively affect anyone, so OP would've been fine. They wouldn't have known of their non-existence.

Well, yes, but do you really think that now, OP would prefer not existing?

Do you really think every person who exists is happy they do? Perhaps OP is glad to be alive and that's a good thing, but, believe it or not, there are some people who'd have preferred to not exist.

no one knows what it is like to not exist.. existing gives you the power of choice and bring change.

Mission failed.

At least you tried...

I mean at least they didn't fire you

Hey man at least you get to be alive! Go make everyday great!
