Having divorced parents could suck, but my parents are divorced and live together. They get along really well. I have my mothers last name though, not my fathers. I used to go by my fathers last name until they got divorced, then my mom won a bunch of custody stuff and I decided to go with my moms maiden name. But they are still friends, live in the same house with us, so as long as it remains that way I suppose it is all right if they are divorced.

Ummm...If they're divorced why do they live in the same house? Why not just get married again? I guess it's great they get along, but...

More to do with religious reasons, they aren't really divorced in a sense like normal people. It is hard to explain. My parents can't get divorced in our religion because it is against it, but there are other ways of doing it. And they don't want to split the family up.

Never divorced, and it'll stay like that for a while.

That sucks. As long as my parents don't move away from eachother I don't mind, at least until I am in college. I don't want to have to deal with going to each parents house on different weekends and all that other stuff. But that won't happen as they aren't in a real divorce like what you see other people go through, so they share 100% of eachothers property. And they aren't allowed to date other people either, according to their religion. So technically they aren't divorced. It is weird. Too hard to explain because I don't understand what they did.

Didn't you ever ask why? I just did and got a "fair" reason.. (well not that I liked it afterwards).. How old where you when they "divorced"?

My folks divorced when I was fifteen. My Dad committed suicide about a year later and I haven't talked to my Mum since.

Hmm... That must suck. My parents divorced when I was four or five. They've never spoken since. My Mother remarried and it was the best possible thing that could have happened to her and to me.

They divorced last December. I seriously don't know the name for it, it is a Polish term and I don't know how to translate it into english. But where I come from divorce is looked down upon so when a couple does decide to get divorced they do this instead.
