I always thought I had the perfect family, but I think my parents want a divorce. All my friends have divorced parents, and they hate it. They have to go to counselors and don’t get to pick who they live with.
I don’t want to be one of those girls. My parents fight and don’t even seem to love each other. Help!
It’s frightening to think about your parents divorcing, but no family is perfect. When any family goes through a change, it’s difficult for everyone involved. But understand that this change could actually improve your family situation. If your parents fight a lot, they might be happier apart. Also, just because your friends have had bad experiences doesn’t mean you have to be “one of those girls.”
Talk honestly to your parents about your fears, and ask them to be open with you. This way, if they do divorce, you’ll be better prepared. Remember, you can still have close relationships with both parents even if they are no longer married.
