If your parents have been divorced, how much does that raise the chance that you will be divorced or separated?
I firmly believe it depends on the relationship between the parent after the divorce, and the positive emphasis on the fact that two people created kids they love. My parents divorced when I was almost 19 (and it was "complicated" before that - long separations for work & school). They are still the best of friends (who manage to get on each other's nerves as only long term friends can). As for my own relationship, my parents situation was different. Should my husband and I divorce, it would be because OUR situation became untenable for some reason between us.
