I am so sorry you had to go through this. So painful. Unfortunately, my research tells me you are not alone. For my master's thesis, I looked at every possible study and read numerous books on adult children of divorce and the scars that remained years after a parental divorce. And the one thing that stood out was the plea from children, asking their parents to please not put the children in the middle. For adults, divorce equals the end. But to children, it is often the beginning of a very difficult journey. Thanks for being so honest about it.
