My parents did divorce until after I moved out and my brother and sister were 16 & 15. It made my dad a terrible, miserable, hateful person. I wished they would have done it sooner. They were unhappy a long time and stayed together for us kids.

I guess it would depend on the situation.  I grew up with parents constantly fighting, splitting and getting back together and the cycle repeating itself a few dozen times.  Life, for my sister and I, would have just been so much better if they could have atleast made a final decision.  Unfortunatly, they still have not yet.  They divorced 5 years ago again, and now just go back together again.  I don't get them at all.   If they would have stayed divorce when I was younger, that would have been the better decision, because then I wouldn't have had to wake up to them screaming at each other.  I hated that so much more than them living apart.

It was good for my dd. her dad and I never really fought but we just couldn't stand each other. There was always a negative energy around. Both he and I are much happier now and so is dd.

Yes, it can be. When I was 11 my mom and dad got divorced, I have to say it was one of the best days of my childhood. The relief and stress lifted off me was great. I still got to see both my parents but we were all much happier!

in some cases, alot of kids would be much better off if their parents seperated. it could help prevent alot of trauma in their life.

In the case of my parents' divorce, it was definitely a good thing.  My mom was ready to kill my father after his arrest.  Anyway, the divorce got my brother and me away from a pedophile, so it was definitely a good thing.
