To warring parents, splitting up often feels like the only answer. But as Jane Green reveals from bitter experience, the fallout - for your children, your friends and yourself - can be worse than you imagined.
Most people do not realize that divorce is like a bomb going off, not only for the family, but for their extended family, their children and their friends as well. Actor Ewan McGregor was quoted as saying that “a divorce in a family is a bomb going off in everyone’s lives…”.
This article gives a different perspective from someone who went through a traditional divorce, and after handling the fall out of their “bomb going off”, now believes in retrospect that it may have been better for their children to have stayed in a miserable marriage rather than have the family and children go through the effects of a divorce.
I would note, however, that divorce at any age, including a “gray” divorce, has an impact on children. No matter what age the children are when a divorce happens, they are impacted. Obviously this is something that each person contemplating a divorce must think through to see what is best for them and their family.
