I'm not going to vote YDI or FYL on this one because you obviously don't deserve it and, if you think about it, your life is quite the opposite of fucked. You have two parents that, despite not wanting to be together, love you so much that they spent 12 years together so that you could have a normal family life. Your life rules (kind of).
Maybe they did this for you, so that you will be happy with two parents, and once you got older (like now) they hoped you'd understand and so broke the news to you. While I understand your pain, at the same time be grateful that they did this for so long, just for you. Not many divorced parents would go the extra length like this just for their kid
I can relate. My parents divorced and split when I was 5. I spent my whole childhood missing my dad, 'cause I would see him once in a month. My teens were even worse with me seeing him less and him getting together with a woman who was jealous of our distant relationship and separating ourselves even more. I ended up giving up and would only talk to him on the phone. He ended up being killed by the woman I just mentioned. It's been 5 months and I cry every single day, 'cause I gave up on our relationship and I miss him so much. My mom is depressing because of him passing, since she never stopped loving him and never had any other relationship. If my parents had faked, my mom would be happy for having him today and he would still be alive. And I? Who knows, but I wouldn't be so sad now.
#3, that's easy, it's because she just loves his paycheck. As long as he pays the bills and she doesn't have to "service" him, it's a pretty sweet life for her. Why should she care if some other woman wants to bang him more than she does if she's the one on his excellent health insurance plan?
Wow, you take this FML very lightly. "You just found out that that your dad is an asshole and that both of your parents are incredibly good liars, but be happy, because they did it for you." Fuck that shit, OP has every right to be pissed off. Also, a happily divorced couple is much, much, muuuuuuch better for the children than having to deal with this bullshit.
This still leaves the question of how old you are, if you're 14 years old, this FML just got juicier.
Why has your mother been okay with this whole charade?
