After 31 yrs of marriage talking about divorce!

Posted by   + Show Post
My parents got into a huge argument yesterday because my dad left my mom at the unemployment office because she was taking to long and he was ready to go home so he left. My mom had to call me to come get her 30 min away because she didn't have a ride. She gets home tells him she doesn't appreciate being stranded with no ride and she didn't deserve that.

Things got heated and my dad told my mom that either he was leaving or she had to and if he left he didn't plan on staying around here! My mom told him she didn't want either one to leave she wanted them to stay together and work things out but dad says that's not an option so my mom is staying with me and my dh.

They won't talk to each other and divorce has been thrown around! I don't want my parents to divorce! I don't know what I would do. I wish I could do something to help them. I'm trying to stay strong for my mom because she hasn't stopped crying since yesterday afternoon! I don't know what to say to make her feel better! I know she is so tore up inside! Needed to vent to someone don't want to make my mom feel worse than she already does! I just can't believe after 31 yrs something like this blew up so big :(

My parents divorced after 30 years of marriage and 5 kids. It happens, and it sucks. But the world does continue to spin, and the sun still comes up. Life goes on.

Your mom should taken the hint along time ago. Obviously he is a scoundrel. On the DL perhaps? Did she used to make good money? Now she's home all the time...

I don't know I'd say that if your dad wanted a divorce over something small like that then I'd say he's been thinking about it for a while now and just needed an excuse to say that he wanted out!!! I told my ex husband that I was leaving him after I found 13 pairs of women's underwear in my closet!!! That was the first time I'd even thought about divorce but I had a pretty good reason for asking for a divorce since he was obviously sleeping with either one or more other women and I had proof!!!so just tell your mom she'll be ok with put him and maybe it is all for a good reason maybe your mom will meet the man of her dreams and get remarried!!! Either way just be supportive and show her that you still care and live her very much!!!she will appriciate it more than you will ever know!!!!just thought I'd try and help ya out!!!!
