Today, my parents told me they're getting a divorce. However, they asked me not to tell any of the family so that the news doesn't spoil Christmas. Thanks, Mom and Dad. FML
I agree, your life sucks 33 273
You deserved it 2 263

Same thing different taste


#1 said it all....ouch man....just ouch...

On the plus side, you get pity looks from some of your friends.. And you know have ppl to blame when you feelin' down.. But seriously, FYL.. And FML.. I know how you feel.. Except I didn't really know my Dad while they were married.. He was a truck driver and we only saw him 1 or 2 days a week.. I was about 6 when they split.. He wouldn't know the first thing about parenting, anyway.. I suspect the condom broke 3 times.. And 4 times with a different woman (before he met my mother)..

That kinda sucks :/ I'm sorry about it, they shouldn't have told you on CHRISTMAS. Sorry :/ but i mean, if you're a grown man, you had a good childhood WITH them, right?

Really? Tell your child about a divorce on CHRISTMAS? That's worse then telling them before. OP got off lucky compared to that...

aw.... thats horrible... y would they tell u that on christmas?

More like, why do it at all? I know it's necessary sometimes, but it never makes it hurt any less.

Of course, your son doesn't count as family *facepalm*

He/she might not be a adult the youngest you can be allowed to is 13 I'm 13 so yea

Allowed to post on FML, I guess? Incomplete sentence for the loss.
